The Bassmaster was the first version of the Treble and Bass 50, appearing in the 1963 Selmer catalogue and much rarer as it was only made in that year.

Selmer Truvoice Bassmaster 50 Serial Number 16442

Crocodile skin cabinet in original state and very good condition. Non-original back screws. Fully working amplifier but with replaced caps and mains transformer as with many of these amps. Original caps preserved on top of the amp chassis. Output transformer is original.  Would appear to be an early model with 4 x ECC83 valves. Serial No 16442. (The Selmer website gives 16723 as 1964).

Recently serviced and revalved. Excellent sound.

Original Bulgin Mains plug is still in the chassis, but mains lead hard wired in to meet UK regs.

This amp is part of a superb collection of early British valve amps that we are selling on consignment for a customer. He has been collecting amps for over 30 years and the above description was written by him. Click on the photos to zoom in and see many more detailed and internal shots.

Note that as they are part of a large collection which has been in storage there may be a delay in shipping if a fault is discovered in the final testing (this is not uncommon with amps that have been sat on the shelf). In the event that this happens the amp will be sent to our tech for work and we will keep you updated. If you need further information please get in touch.
