All I can say is that I'm kicking myself for getting rid of it. I've played a couple of the reissue versions but they're just not the same. If I could, I would hunt another vintage one down in a heartbeat.
Model Year: 1972
Where Obtained: A friend
Pretty much your typical "vintage" layout...treble, mid & bass eq's, 2 channels with separate volumes, 100 all tube watts.
Play thru one of these and you'll see why they're so sought after. Very, very nice tones. I used mine for typical rock & roll gigs, and also loaned it out for jazz & country session players.
Plug in and go! No problems here!
While I'm sure these older amps still have a ton of life left in them, they're slowly but surely being retired. They're built like a ton of bricks, but as with any tube amplifier, they need a little bit of special care.
