 I've had and sold all types of tube amps from Fender to top exotic Italian amps. This is the best. It makes everyone, no matter what their level of accomplishment is, sound like a pro. This is the most enjoyable amp I've heard. The rising cost on eBay backs this up and now is the time to buy before everyone experiences the absolute joy of playing and listening to this vintage amp and runs the price through the roof. It is all original down to the original tubes. They do not appear to have been used and test the following:

2 Silvertone Holland/Amperex? 12AX7's –   Test strong ,  2  RCA 6V6's—Tests Good, 1X 6AU6- Tests Good Silvertone/RCA ---  6X4 RCA/Silvertone -Tests Good  .  The original 12 inch speaker is still there. As with many seller's I am not the original owner, but from all appearances this amp has had extremely little use and it is as close to all original as you can get. It has two 1/4” pieces of Tolex missing and one or two very small areas of slight discoloration in the Tolex smaller than a dime in total area and hard to spot because the color blends in. All the lettering is there and near perfect as I can tell. The chrome is in excellent shape and as near perfect as I can see. There are no new production non-original tubes and this amp shows it with its unbelievable melodic sound. Every note sound is enjoyable. The better you are, the better this amp sounds. All the pots have been cleaned with Caig Fader Lube. All the controls and effects function properly and with no noticeably noise. Besides a guitar amp this would make an excellent Slide Guitar amp or Blues Harp amp. All point-to-point wiring and warm tube-rectified tonality. Tremolo sounds extremely strong and compelling. Just serviced.  All in all, this is a very powerful amp for its size and could be used to your benefit, in a hall or a small club, with excellent results. This is the great one and is a near as I can tell a Collector/User Piece. Look at my rating and buy it now, for the pleasure you deserve! Guaranteed for a full refund on return if not as described, and I must be notified within 3 days of receipt. I MUST BE NOTIFIED IMMEDIATELY OF ANY PHYSICAL DAMAGE NOT IN THE LISTING SO A CLAIM MAY BE FILED WITH THE CARRIER. No partial refunds. While the shipping calculator says UPS, I will ship all heavy packages by FedEx ground if available to your location, and I have them do the packaging so they guarantee safe delivery. Recent problems with buyers not cooperating with claims have left me no choice. If you are an overseas buyer using a forwarding agent, your bid will be cancelled if it is an agent that refused to cooperate with a claim.  I can provide other carrier costs if you are not served by FedEx ground.  All items are well packed, but items can be subject to treatment that defies the best of packaging. For this reason, the buyer must be willing to cooperate with the carrier in filing a claim for damage and keep the original packaging. Failures to file claims have resulted in buyers having to pay return shipping, and this can be significant with heavy items.
