This one has been thoroughly gone over and has a clean bill of health from “ The Amp Lab “ She.s in great “Ready to Record Tonight condition.
This is our latest arrival fresh out of the Amp Lab’s restoration shop with repair documentation.
It just needed routine repair maintenance – cap replacement as needed and 2 6l6 power tubes replaced All of its original vintage USA tubes are still very good and replacement tubes we upgraded to are also US Genuine vintage correct Sylvania Black plate vintage 6L6 matched set , all other tubes are the originals!
This example has the stylish vintage cabinetry art deco influenced curved lines and cool tolex and beautiful grill cloth all in amazing and beautiful genuine vintage condition its been kept in this condition
Well protected in California weather since new in a HEAVY DUTY canvas cover it has done an excellent job of keeping it beautiful all these years…. Sano corp. is out of Irvington New Jersey was . Very well
made even over built and was all hand wired point to point first class components of the era. Even the Cabinets were proudly overbuilt as if fine furniture to this day this 54 year old vintage US 30 watt Tube amp is solid as a rock…. Its good to go for another 54 years and it sounds absolutely amazing!
I just got it back from my Tech and he just replaced a few caps and cleaned her contacts up a bit
Change to my 2 black plate Sylvania 6L6’s And she’s quiet at idle and has good head room…
It sort of reminded me of the TONE of my 65 SUPRO Thunderbolt … the thunderbolt is said to be 35 watts and the Sano is 30 watts but the Sano seems almost just as loud to me…. Now I have had at least
6 Thunderbolts over the years ( I still actually have one as a matter of fact ) but I think this Sano sounds
Just as good as the Thunderbolt …. With more control of tone at the amp I may even give this SANO the edge. The Sano absolutely Kills with my Strat it sounds clean and articulate at lower range volumes and then you get great break up when dimed out you get a great Jimi tone and even SRV tone ….
And the creamy gutsy Les Paul tones-are nothing short of Jimmy Page in your Face!
This amp takes pedals great..I ran a TS808 & a delay pedal and played for hours…TOOOOO much Fun!
The amp looks mid-sized its smaller than the Thunderbolt but its just more compact it’s a killer Alnico 15” speaker inside that substantial cabinet and it projects quite nicely again pretty good volume for
A 30 watt rating….. they I have read compare these with Ampeg’s of the same era… also highly respected American classic tube amps I don’t have an Ampeg from this era to compare it too so I cant say first hand…. But I can first hand compare it to what sounds very familiar to my ears and I have been into old
Black faced Fenders I have the old Super Reverbs, a Vibroverb black face and Marshall Plexi, and they all have their own attributes for sure, Tone is hard to verbalize no doubt but this SANO is a winner in the
Tone department and it has many amps beat in the cool vintage esthetics department….
Its RARE… when have you seen one exactly like this? OK you baby boomers may recognize the handle its the same as you may remember on your old ice box refrig and some stoves used these handles too in the 50's-60s... a little memorabilia for ya.
This ole girl has been thoroughly gone over and has a clean bill of health from “ The Amp Lab “ She.s in great “Ready to Record Tonight condition. Damn good old amp you will not be disappointed in. any questions please ask Joe at firstname.lastname@example.org
