One of the best sounding amps ever made... w/orig ft switch, very nice sounding at least 1 speaker is not original, all original transfomers etc.. pleanty of gutts and SRV tone available.. looking good! see the pics..
Yamaha contracted Mike Soldano to design this amp for Yamaha USA this was before Soldano's SLO.... very similar design with very little difference except the price is about 1/3rd .....This cool little barn stormer of an amp is a 1-12" Combo with 100 watts rms and is a very well built and dependable all tube combo amp Marshall meets Mesa this is a great sounding amp! A little secret, that's not much of a secret. Before the SLO, Mike Soldano designed an amplifier for Yamaha. This T-100. pretty much the Same amp you can call the guys at Soldano, they will tell you about that its true. There is a $50 mod you can have them do to the amp to perfectly match the amp, but the tech at Soldano said that no one in their shop can hear the difference. "Choke Mod." The T-100 is the prototype for the SLO.
I had one for a long time. Absolutely was a great amp, and they can be found reasonably here at JVGuitars in combo form. Right on the back panel it says, "Designed by Mike Soldano."
You know the best tone I ever had was with that little bandmaster cranked to 10. Edward Van Halen, 1980, Guitar Player Magazine.

** This is a true screamin tone machine!
1960's Fender Vibratone. It is exceptionally clean and original, and complete with all cables and connectors. Other than a ding(depression) on the top/front edge (but not through the tolex) it is really clean.These Fender "Leslie effects" have always been tough to find...and you rarely find them in this condition with all the extras. Their unique sound was prominent on many recordings from the 1960's. They were produced from 1967 into 1972. The rotating horn provides a Doppler effect, as the spinning causes a rise and fall in pitch. It also provides a mild tremolo. The footswitch controls the two speeds. This sounds unbelievable when played through a Fender Twin or Super Reverb amp. And when plugged into a VOX AC30...provides some really unique choral sounds. Whether the instrument that is plugged into it is a guitar or an organ (Hammond B-3, Vox Continental)...the sound is really something else
This Killer Traynor YSR-1 Amp Exotic Cabinet is made of Gorgeous SOLID EXOTIC AFRICAN ROSEWOOD ( Bubinga )
on sides, top, and bottom. Amp face, back, The Speaker face and speaker grill are solid Canary Wood. Hand rubbed polymerized tung oil finish. Loaded with 2 - Celestian Vintage 10" speakers. YSR-1 Head modified with a Torres Dual Stage Master Volume and Pre-CBS Fender mods, Hand Hard wired Tube reverb, foot switchable tremolo (no footswitch) with rate & depth controls. All tube 60Watt, 2- Svetlana EL-34 power tubes. EL-34's rated at 4, 7 & 12 (on a 1-12 scale), so you can tailor the power amp response to your taste. With a Padded Mesa leather handle is a real nice touch. Dome Top chrome knobs . Cream colored custom made vinyl cover included.
A really unique and Sweet Boutique Style Vintage Marshall-Plexi type amp . It was biased & built and has only seen living room conditions and little use. If your EL34 type of guy
with fine taste in exotic woods as well as true love for KILLER VINTAGE TONE then this is defiantly the Amp for you. . It's a real gorgeous piece of art work and must be seen and heard to be appreciated, The word “Plexi" has been used in reference to this amp's history and tone generated ,
Here is a link below that can give you more info & reviews on the origin of the head that this cool killer players amp is built from..
The Amp Weighs 61 pounds.
This is not The Vintage Marshall 18 Watt 2-12" Combo Amp it replicatse but IS a SUPER CLONE!!
I just recently became acquainted with these Killer amplifiers, made by GDS Amplification and amplifier designer, Graydon D. Stuckey. We feel that the sound and craftsmanship of this amp has gotta be seen & heard & played to truly be apreciated. Amazing dripping -lush vintage tone WoW!
For all those who already know the full on guttsy sound of a couple Marshall stacks or Vintage Fender black faced amps-favorites when they're really cookin'—-its nice to hear that these amps can deliver the very same satiation of tone and gut, yet allow the player and others to converse while the playing takes place. Especially appealing is that one can transfer this scenario to actual club playing circumstances and recording studio environments and still get the sound desired. Further, stage mix and audience PA mix can be better controlled by micing the amp, yet allowing the player feel they're getting what they want, the band sounds as it intends, and the sound guy isn't sweating bullets between the club owner and the band.
Pictured below are text descriptions and images of the GDS product line. Custom speaker and tone requests are available as well. This examle is a 2004-5 and came to us with the Marshall logo on it and the original GDS logo is long gone..Its very clean at least 9.25%/10 rated in very good-excellent used condition.
One Screamin Little 1-12" combo Powerhouse here folks you can get just about any style tone you like out of this great amp. This example is just like new and is ready to tour today...Great Direct Recording amp too. Its light & Loud if / when needed, Great BF sort of Fender Reverb Tone's Clean and at your fingertips or foot switchable if you will + Killer Lush Crunch Marshall biting leads INCREDABLE! I Gave this a romp with a 4 - 12 extension box and ran our ts808 threw it and this amp is HUGE...
No Disapointments ...Here is a link to Mesa Bogie's DC3 Manual for oporational information you may be interested in.

I bought this after my beloved Carvin X-100 combo exploded onstage in a shower of flame and smoke after 10 years of amazing sound and rugged service. Sure that looked like a cool onstage but I wanted to cry!!!
So it's off to the store I go to find a replacement (on my limited limited limited budget). I took this amp out on rental to get through some gigs until I found something to buy - and fell in love so I just kept it and bought it outright.
It's features have been listed to death elsewhere so I wont bother listing them - suffice to say they are numerous for such a small all tube amp. This amp is used just about weekly onstage in large size clubs (and occasionally even in stadiums)in an 80's hard rock/metal band.
Sound Quality : 9
I uses it with my trusty '83 Strat with Fury ZP-20 humbucker in the bridge, Seymour Duncan HB in the neck and stock single coil in the middle. My current setup is simply the guitar into Korg Tuner pedal into the amp. Live, I front mic the amp with a Shure SM57 into the P.A.
For a little 30 watter, this thing howls - what a great sound for hard rock. The tone is hot and thick and cuts right through the mix. My only gripe is I might wish for just a bit more presence - however I'm planning on picking up a 2x12 cabinet to give it what i'm looking for. Overall a solid 9.
Reliability : 9
After a year with it, the only trouble I've had was when Channel 2 crapped out for the last song of the night at a gig. However on inspection insed afterwards, it was found that the tubes sort of wiggled themselves loose (must have been a particularily thumping set). So the tubes were reseated and the amp was back in business. This thing has stood up to tons of use at stage volumes and still screams.
Customer Support : No Opinion
Have had no need to deal with Boogie (besides I bought it used)
Overall Rating : 9
I've been playing for 28 years, 17 of them in professional touring bands and have owned a JCM800 fullstack, Marshall MOSFET (yech) fullstack, and my aforementioned beloved Carvin x-series combo. I miss the sound of my JCM800 stack - but I dont miss lugging it around. That's why I downsized to combos - and as combos go - for the price this one kicks ass. If it were lost or stolen I would probably try to track down another one. Of course if I won the lottery- I'd pick up a Road King Stack or TSL100 stack instead lol. But until then - this is my amp and I love it!
OUR Yamaha HAS SEEN LITTLE USE AND IS IN 9/10 CONDITION NEAR MINT MUST SEE AND HEAR!

Ease of Use : 10
I've used one semi-professionally since 1993. I still rate it as one of the best ergonomically, particularly the accomp.control section. I think more recently Yamaha have tried too far to 'improve' on the controls and layout. The PSR-500 manual set a standard I try to emulate whenever writing instructions.
Features : 9
The keyboard has always had a good feel, but with heavy use I've had to replace some of the rubber contact mats (the machine is as well designed inside, as out!). For its time, the range of facilities was breath-taking. I'm a songwriter, and worked out how to use the user programmable (99) accomp. as a 33-bar 16-track sequencer! Careful use of the sections can give some quite sophisticated arrangements - I even managed a song with 'verse' time sig. 21/16 and 'chorus' time sig. 18/16!! The only downside is that they don't transmit over MIDI.
Expressiveness/Sounds : 8
Any keyboard has some sounds regarded unuseable - personal taste determines which! Most of PSR500 sounds can be used for something. My current main keyboard is an S2turbo, and combining the S2 strings with the PSR 'stereo' strings is great! The PSR percussion doesn't sound out of place along side the more contemporary k'board. I use a Doepfer 88 note piano controller; some months ago when the PSR500 keys started playing up, I experimented, and ending up literally chopping off the keyboard part!! I now have a module with all the electronics, controls and speakers, which I play with 88 notes for small 'gigs', yet fits between the Doepfer and the S2 so I can use all the sounds and rhythms! A Sawn-off PSR!!
Reliability : 10
My PSRs have been VERY heavily used (I replaced my original about 6 years ago as it was cheap and save a maintenance job). The keyboard rubbers are the only parts to have worn out (I'm fairly heavy handed).As well as much songwriting, I played in 2 electric ceildh bands, praise and worship music all over UK, and I took it to the Caribbean for three months. Backup, what's that?!?
Customer Support : 8
Through a local dealer I ordered the keyboard rubbers to fit myself. They arrived in days, no problem.
Overall Rating : 10
I have much songwriting work in PSR500 dump file format. I know of no easy way to convert it, so I would have to replace it - all the MIDI data is in there somewhere, surely there's a way?
I shopped around very carefully before getting my first PSR500. It well exceeded my expectations. I've never seen or played another k'board and wished I'd bought it instead. I regard the PSR500 with great fondness (despite taking a saw to it!!) and still rate it as one of the great keyboards!
Impressive live sounding full rich grand sound from its self contained powerful and High Quality dynamic stereo speaker system WoW.... Great for recording ....this unit is much more than a great sounding grand piano .. jazz organ is unbelievable think B-3 type sounds ...so much more ...more than I can explain .....its in 100% Excellent Condition , it sound is like new...I'm so impressed I think its AWESOME
Ours does not come with wooden stand ( SEE the last picture below file picture )it shows this unit with its original optional & available stand installed OURS DOES NOT COME WITH THE WOODEN STAND:...Ours is the free standing unit you see in the pictures.. I have it with a more portable use type collapsible x braced tublar black powder coated satin black stand and is more storage flexible and able to be stored in an upright position for less space because she is a fairly large full 88 keyboard.
Here is information from Yamaha corp press release:
The DGX-505 is the top of the line in the Portable Grand series and is destined to be one of the most popular portable keyboards we've ever made, based on sales of the model it replaces – the DGX-500. It comes with everything shown; wooden side panels, matching wooden stand and sustain pedal. It has an attractive, easy to use panel and a wealth of features including 88 lightly weighted piano-style keys, high resolution stereo piano sample, SmartMedia storage, USB computer connectivity, a large bitmapped LCD screen capable of displaying notation and lyrics for songs, pitch bend wheel for more expressive playing of string and brass instruments, and a six-track sequencer that is designed for the utmost in simplicity; two button pushes and you're recording. For those interested in learning to play, we've beefed up the "Yamaha Education Suite" (Y.E.S.) found on previous models with a new interactive version, Version IV, which includes "Your Tempo" and "Repeat & Learn" modes. Finally, the new performance assistant technology allows you to play along with songs and not make a mistake – guaranteeing even a complete beginner a rewarding musical experience!
SmartMedia storage offers high-capacity storage
For the utmost in simplicity, compatibility and portability, the DGX-505 features SmartMedia storage (card optional), offering up to 128MB of high-speed access to songs and styles. Unlike audio files, MIDI songs and styles are small files, allowing you to store literally hundreds and hundreds of your favorite tunes on a card that is not much bigger than a postage stamp. For convenience, there are a couple of ways to get data to the card. You can connect the keyboard directly to your computer, using the USB jack on the back, and transfer songs and styles directly from your computer to the card (PC only). Or, if you don't plan on having the keyboard in the same room as your computer, simply pick up a memory card reader for your computer from your favorite electronic supply store and transfer data that way.
PC Button & USB: This keyboard loves your computer
The DGX-505 has many state of the art features to make connecting to your PC as quick and easy as possible. These features include the PC Button, which takes a snapshot of your MIDI settings so that you can instantly return to them with just the press of a single button, and a USB port for transferring song data from your computer. In addition, the USB port acts as a MIDI interface, freeing you from having to purchase other MIDI peripherals like cables and adapters to play music. Simply connect to your computer, open your favorite music software program and hit PLAY. That's it.
Large bitmapped screen is your window into the world of music
Have you ever played a song and wondered what it would look like as sheet music? The DGX-505 can display the score to a song whether it comes from the Internet, the internal selections or ones that you record yourself, and the pages scroll automatically when a song is played back – no more page turning! And for singers, the screen also displays chords and lyrics to XF compatible songs. For examples, please visit www.yamahamusicsoft.com. And for those that want to learn to play, notation adds a new dimension to the Yamaha Education Suite, allowing you to hear a song while you follow the notes in the display
Learn to play with the Yamaha Education Suite IV
LCD screen displays notation to the song you want to learn
Keyboard lessons/songs are designed for learning one hand at a time
Your Tempo learning mode – progress at your own pace
Repeat and Learn – repeat difficult to learn sections
Lesson Grading – monitors your progress as you practice each lesson
Lessons work with internal as well as downloaded song files
Chord Dictionary – shows you how to play chords and tells you which chords you are playing by displaying the notes and chord name on the LCD screen
Learning to play songs moves to a new level of simplicity with the new "Your Tempo" learning mode. Call up a song, press the notation button so that you can see the music, press left hand or right hand or both at once for two-handed learning, and the keyboard and notation will speed up and slow down as you do, literally following you through the song. If you find one section of the song a little difficult, simply engage the "Repeat and Learn" button and the DGX-505 will stay on that section, repeating it until you feel comfortable. Then move on to the next section. The Yamaha Education Suite also works with Standard MIDI Files (SMF), allowing you to learn songs of your choosing – and the keyboard will show the music notation to those selections as well!
Playing piano is fast and easy with Yamaha's Portable Grand function. One dedicated button brings up a great sounding piano, stunningly rich and authentic in its sound and exceptionally responsive to your playing touch, as well as setting up the keyboard to play as a piano in full keyboard mode. On top of all this, a wealth of special piano-only "Pianist" styles, like Slow Rock and Stride, provide professional sounding piano accompaniment that change chords automatically as you do, while you play a piano melody on top!
General MIDI and Yamaha XGlite makes for great sound
The DGX-505 comes equipped with 494 voices that include a high resolution stereo-sampled Piano, a selection of Sweet! Voices including Trumpet, Flute, Pan Flute, Soprano & Tenor Saxes, Cool! Voices including Galaxy Electric Piano, Suitcase Electric Piano, Electric Piano & Organ, Live! Voices including Piano, Warm Grand & Orchestra and 10 Drum Kits and 2 Sound Effects Kits.
Sweet! Voices are special voices from Yamaha that reproduce all the natural expression and vibrato of their respective acoustic instruments.
Cool! Voices feature long samples of electronically amplified instruments.
Live! Voices use stereo samples to ensure the most accurate reproduction of each instrument's natural presence, resonance and vibrato. It all adds up to great sound.
And for the utmost in compatibility, the DGX-505 is both General MIDI (GM) and XGlite capable. The Internet has thousands of MIDI song files available and you can rest assured that your DGX-505 will be able to competently reproduce these files.
Mix and match
You are also able to create sound mixes of your own using Layer and Split modes. Split mode allows you to have two different sounds on the keyboard at the same time, like piano on the right and bass on the left. Layer mode allows you to combine two sounds across the keyboard range. For example, you could play Piano and Strings at the same time. You're only limited by your imagination.
Performance Assistant Technology – Now anyone (yes, anyone!) can play
Performance assistant technology is a new feature from Yamaha that guarantees that you can't play a wrong melody note or chord. Here's how it works. Select a song, press the Performance Assistant button and select from either chord or melody mode.
In chord mode, play the keyboard – any notes you like. Every note you play will fit the music! If you move up the keyboard, the pitch goes up. If you move down, the pitch goes down. Play a perfect arpeggio, or play chords in time with the music, or really "go for it" and play a solo.
In melody mode, simply play any note in time with the melody and the keyboard will play the correct pitch. For example, you can play the melody simply by tapping one key. Even if you can't play piano and can't read a note of music, you can still have some musical fun.
2-Way Speaker System
Separate woofers and tweeters deliver sounds with clarity and precision for more lifelike instrument voices.
Bass Boost System
A special port on each speaker adds a powerful impact to bass sound reproduction.
Stereo (Not just 2 Speakers)
We all know that stereo sound adds realistic character and spatial depth. But how can you tell if the portable keyboard you're looking to purchase is stereo or not? With Yamaha, the answer is simple. All Yamaha Portable Keyboards are true stereo.
Digital Signal Processing (DSP)
Enhances sound quality with sophisticated digital effects like Harmony, Reverb & Chorus.
Advanced Wave Memory (AWM)
Yamaha Advanced Wave Memory technology delivers amazingly realistic sound.
What's polyphony, you ask? Simply put, polyphony is how many notes a keyboard can reproduce simultaneously. The DGX-505 has 32-note polyphony allowing you to play intricate arrangements and dense musical passages.
Keyboard Styles and the One Touch Setting
The DGX-505 comes with 135 built-in styles, waiting for you to play along with. It's just like having a built-in band. Call up your favorite style of music like Rock, Big Band or Country, press a chord or play Single Finger mode, and the DGX-505 will follow you through a piece of music, providing all of the drums, bass, piano, guitar, horn and string parts for you. And to make it easy and fun, when you select one of the styles, the One Touch Setting function will automatically configure keyboard parameters, such as voice selection and digital effects, to match that selected music style.

This was an early one for Supro this is the one I always liked best of the line and I feel its much better sounding than the later TB 67-68': h88 Doublet 1964 Supro Thunderbolt, model S6420 Made by Valco in Chicago, USA. This is an absolutely beautiful Supro Thunderbolt tube amp ALL ORIGINAL with original Jensen C15PS speaker just Killer sounding. This is the most desirable early version with 5U4GB tube rectifier for a much smoother response. This is a GREAT ONE!! Some say the best they've ever heard. , I had one of these great amps when I was 20 ( now I'm 55 ) and rockin hard and I really kicked the S! out of it dragging it round jamming etc...it can really take a lot its damn near indestructible! Yes in deed these are great old amps ... this is one of Jimmy Pages Favorites he Played & recorded with Supro's one of the best sounding most cult classic sought after amps of all time...Jimi Hendrix also was know to play a Supro Thunderbolt.. This is the best one of the lot.. THE 1964 Supro Thunderbolt. She's incredible the gutsiest little amp on the planet the one all the Boutique amps try to copy and she's in 100% perfect working order !!! and the only non original thing about it is a needed upgrade of a heavy duty modern new properly installed and grounded 3 pong plug. This example is a classic and has roaring tone and truly is nothing short of "epic" it is very silent, no hum or buzz at all!!!! simplistic in its design its controls are one volume and one tone that controls both treble & bass that's it!. The Original 15inch Jensen is on board and it breaks up so amazingly and has not been reconed , even the tubes are the originals from 1964 and still sounds amazing.
See pics soon to come for cosmetics detail ..very good - excellent vintage condition...
SORRY FOLKS this one has sold!
But good news folks we have another excellent vintage Supro Thunderbolt 115 amp on the way!...
if interested let us know that go.
Thank you for looking.
Supro mode 1624T Dual Tone amp. This one has black and white tolex and no panel in the front so that dates this amp to the 1962-63 year which is a very good year. Many say that this is the model Supro Amp that Jimmy Page used for the first two Zeppelin albums. I have read that Jimmy had buy passed the amps tremolo circuit and this modd in fact adds that additional circuits power and tone to the other making this model amp the raging tone freak of nature they can truly be. I under its a non permanent mod that's EZ to do and EZ to reverse... I am seriously thinking it over and may have it done.. not by just anyone but we have used Dan Torres for years to do our amp maintenance work.. he in the day use to also work on Jimi Hendrix's amp here in the bay area for one... he's getting up there in age now but as I understand it he's still got it! Anyway hat is just a thought at this point. Cosmetically not to bad at all actually beautiful in a very vintage cool real relic vibe if you will. The grill cloth is a little wear hear and their,there are some minor scuffs on the tolex, but absolutely no wood showing,some very minor pitting on the control panel and the lettering as most any 50 year old amps that are plaid would have. The knobs are all there and all original.The speaker has been replaced with a nice sounding Gurian alnico. ( I will likely be buying an original correct vintage Supro "Jensen" alnico speaker in time... The power cord has been upgraded to a three prong for safety's sake. A cap job was performed about 10 years ago,so no nasty hum,just great tone!No scratchy pots or intermittent jacks.Everything works just as it should. Both channels sound great,and very different from each other,and the tremolo sounds great,too. Tubes as follows:RCA 5Y3,RCA 6973(2),and Sovtek 12AX7(3) for which I will soon replace with 3 matched NOS USA 12ax7's
SORRY this old girl has SOLD! BUT NO WORRIES ...WE have another Supro 1624T its identical ONLY its SUPER CLEAN!!!! it was kept in closet 30 years here in California with its original Amp Cover on it keeping it in top Vintage Supro Amp collector's condition all these years!.... its BADD to the bone... we also have a few other Vintage 1960s Supro's in stock, a Thunderbolt, Corsica & vobraverb all in top condition...

SOLD OUT : Here we had ( its sold ) a wonderful classic example of the legendary 1967 SUPRO Thunderbolt Amp...this is the first year with the new looking Blue Faced front panel..quite the cool looking amp... This amp is in original condition and is quiet at idle and has that legendary Raw Supro tone these amps are know for...originally made for the bass guitar its set up with a strong 15" speaker, these amps were soon adopted as one of the greatest sounding guitar amplifiers ever built. Notably played by & recorded by Jimi Hendrix as well as Jimmy Page , Robin Trower and many many more... this is a great survivor from the 60's and it BRINGS THE TONE. This one is in very nice condition its not new or mint of course but is beautiful. This is a rare version Thunderbolt and is truly great sounding and a great recording amp...when low volume is sweet & jangly jazz tone capable and when cranked think Jimmy Page compressed and gain tones bounding this one is a huge tone machine...and is a bargain in today's new boutique Amp world of $3k ++ amps...this thing amp kills.
Sorry just sold .This unit is in stock and is in above average condition in all respects is very clean and in 100% condition, recently fully serviced and is superb sounding with BIG power & equal and clean in both sides, Thunderous bass response at this power level is turn down the middle and you get a compression tone I think is one of the best sounding units of this Monster Japanese Receiver era... treble response is also very clean ..you here the highs clear and crisp...this unit has one of the lowest harmonic distortion ratings in this power range of any brand of high power Japanese vintage Receivers....This one is a winner... very clean cosmetically too, nothing missing, nothing broken ever... a very clean vintage survivor that has been well taken care of, adult owned, right here in California and is ready to serve another 35
years. Here are the amazing specs.

Here we have a classic monster vintage receiver by Pioneer made in Japan. This 1977 Pioneer sx1010 is a large & heavy classic stereo receiver with a HUGE 110 Watts Per Channel of RMS power with exceptional high sound quality with extremely low harmonic distortion. This Pioneer SX-1010 was the top model receiver at the time and is still considered among the best sounding of the vintage Pioneer receivers. The receiver is in very good - excellent vintage condition and excellent working condition. The cabinetry woodwork as you may guess from its age has been lovingly restored by sanding off old finish and refinishing the wood with a Brazilian Rosewood finish topped by 12 coats of nitrocellulose lacquer instrument lacquer... she's ready to grace your living room now with vintage style... She's a real beauty just have a good look at all the pics to decide for yourself. This receiver has been serviced it the past 3 years, calibrated, also had the controls and switches cleaned and lubricated. The receiver has been fully tested and all functions & lights are in excellent working order. The output has also been balanced and biased. This receiver has the classic looking silver brushed aluminum faceplate with metal knobs & levers , large blue lighted tuning scale, color source indicators, and nice great looking walnut wood veneer cabinet now looks like Brazilian Rosewood finish. All dial lamp indicators are in working condition. Power output is a booming 110 Watts RMS per Channel @ 8 Ohms which is actually underrated. This is a great receiver to connect a Phono turntable or CD player and even an IPOD or listen to the AM/FM stereo radio. The is the receiver that has a high quality very sensitive AM-FM tuning radio section and this units radio section is in excellent working condition. This receiver can handle down to 4 Ohm speakers so a wide variety of speakers can be used and 3 pairs of speakers can be connected. The receiver has excellent tonal control with stepped Treble & Bass controls and a Loudness switch to boost frequency range at low volume. There are inputs for Phono 1&2, Tape 1, Tape 2, and AUX and the Tape and AUX inputs can be used for CD or DVD analog. There are Main Amp IN and Preamp Out connects so these sections can be used separately if desired. The receiver has been thoroughly cleaned and the faceplate & knobs were hand polished. The faceplate is in good condition with only a few small nicks and some light use wear. The black top grill is in very good original condition. The rear panel is very good as well and all connects and the AM antenna are in excellent condition. overall rating is WoW!...Great booming bass & articulate clear highs this is one amazing sounding powerhouse.

OK... this is not exactly one of our most powerful in your face 120 watt receivers I agree but what this unit does it does VERY WELL..... its fidelity is beautifully well balanced and its tone is warm with rich bass & highs .. I play threw my 1975 Sansui 3000's and this amp sounds wonderful and high quality I do not hear in today's plastic component world... I do believe that their rating of 40 watts RMS per Chanel may be a bit low because this baby has excellent power and is tone wise articulate and complex with very little discernible distortion is very low... I have a fond place for this unit as the 771 is my first receiver I had of quality... back in 1972 the year I graduated high school at 16 I bought one of these used then for about $150 from a friend that came back from Viet Nam war with a few receivers... this was one..... The SANSUI 771 Stereo Receiver
89,900yen(around the 1972 time)
FM / AM-stereo receiver which summarized the pre-main and the tuner to one taking advantage of the technology of an SANSUI, and experience.
This unit was previously serviced and is in very good condition... all functions worling as it should be with no issues and ready to serve another 35+ years... here is some tech info on this particular 771 design you may want to know other than this thing has good power, great bass & high response , tuner pulls in stations easily and has been calibrated, both channels are equal in power and full wattage with no known issues.
Each part is examined and it has composition collected to the printed circuit board, a main-amplifier part, a tone control part, and a tuner part, of three sheets.
Especially the control part that is an operation fraction has banished poor contact's etc. malfunction by the solid construction as for which picking attached volumes and switchpoints to the printed circuit board directly. Moreover, also in each circuitry, IC-ization is measured as much as possible, and the robustness is improved.
The power amplifier part has adopted the whole page hardwired-connection pure complimentary scheme.
The coupling capacitor of interstage was removed, by supplying ±2 power source, a distortion harmful from super-low-pass one to a super-high region was suppressed, and the stable operation has been obtained.
The equalizer amplifier has adopted the two-step hardwired-connection NF type with which a gentle property is acquired. Moreover, a maximum permissible input is given greatly enough and the large record of a dynamic range is also supported.
RIAA deflection also selects a high-precision element carefully and rectifies it correctly.
The mic circuitry is carried and a high-impedance type microphone can be used.
If a mic plug is inserted in a jack, the mic amplifier will operate automatically and it will orientate in the center of a speaker.
The tone control has adopted NF type which uses low-noise FET.
A high region and low-pass one can carry out variable to ten steps by a click stop formula, respectively.
What combined the relay and the electronic circuitry is adopted as a protection network, and it serves also as the pop noise preventing at the time of power activation.
Aluminum die-casting is adopted as the frame of a tuning organization.
A large-sized fly wheel, a back-tension spring scheme, FM tick mark of 250kHz regular intervals which gave tension to dial thread, etc. can be tuned in to a smooth much more.
The dual gate MOS FET and a precision 4-unit variable condenser are adopted as FM front end.
Moreover, a double-tuned circuit etc. is combined and little distorted stable reception is enabled.
In the FM IF section, few good distorted properties have been acquired with the stream composition of a six-element ceramics filter or 2 steps of differential-amplifications 2ICs.
And the customer specific IC with high stability is adopted as the MPX section which separates and restores to FM signal at right and left.
AM tuner part carries a two-element ceramics filter in the IF section.
Two circuitries of tapes monitor circuitries other than a mic are carried, and the tapes monitor 2 can use it also with four channel adapters. Moreover, the DIN termination is also carried.
Three speaker outputs are carried and the using by A/B/C/A+B/A+C is possible for them.
a motor -- the low filter which cuts the run bull generated on super-low-pass one, such as a grounder, and the high filter which cuts the tape hiss of the jarring record and tapes which happen in a high region are carried.
The audio muting switch is carried, and if it turns ON, -20dB will be decreased.
Low loud sound is reinforced at the time of a small sound volume, and the loudness switchpoint which adjusts the balance of sound is carried.
The Stereo-Mono changeover switch is carried.
FM muting switch is built in and an inter-office noise peculiar to jarring FM is intercepted.
Moreover, it is also possible to select the weak office of a radio wave by switching of a switchpoint.
The standby-power-supply-system plug socket of AC is carried two circuitries.
Two large-sized grounding terminals are carried.

Don't let the faceplate fool you..this is the last of the AB763 designed by Leo same one goes back to 1963...by 1970 or 71 they are changed ..this one was not put back to black face specs it always was to black faced specs...

***JUST SOLD : Here we have a truly RARE Black Faced Beauty... similar to the 8080 & 9090 this is the lesser known and much more rare Sansui 890 its equipped with world wide power machine runs on 110 / or 220. Its hard to believe that this Monster Receiver was Crafted in Japan over 30 years ago in the prime " Golden Era" of these SUPER impressive Power House Receivers were being made during this time frame these 890's are seldom seen in the US on the market because they are kept... These are very clean sounding with crystal clear highs and full mid-range with absolutely thundering rich bass output with a rated no more than 0.2 harmonic distortion which is virtually indistinguishable to the ear very high fidelity is achieved... I recommend Monster cable for best power delivery to the speaker and its amazing sounding threw our Sansui 9000 speaker set... These Receivers are factor conservatively rated at 80 Watts per channel at 8 olms however are actually more ours is well over 90+ per.... This unit has been fully reconditioned serviced and fm-re-calibrated and is working at peak performance once again ready to serve another 30 years. You will never really need as much power as this possesses but its nice to know you have it should you have an out door demand and when you turn it up this unit is not stressing at all so it has less harmonic distortion then pushing a less powerful unit to these higher volume this makes for a more robust vivid clean true high fidelity sound... Its Weight is heavy just over 50lbs 55 + packed and is built like a tank and that explains how it still looks like a newer unit yet has that vintage style & beauty. This received can deliver that " Live Performance " sound to bring high fidelity to life in your home. Someone is going to be very pleased .

This is a solid state unit of course and is obviously very reliable and delivers full fedility. This receiver is to be reconed with in its own right one of the greats.... I was impressed with its sound this unit is really clean sounding and at a good multi room filling medium volume you get a good and clean undistorted sound with very low hormonic destortion levels this unit is very Conservitively Rated at 24 Watts RMS per channel and it seems likely its more like 30-35 watts and thats x 4 speakers into 8 ohms times 4 channels. Features, two phono inputs, two tape in/outputs, low and high filters, loudness on/off, FM muting on/off, speakers front on/off rear on/off, front, two bass/treble controls, phones outputs front and rear, tuning meter and many more features.

Vintage 1973 TRAYNOR Bassmaster YBA-4 Vintage 60s Plexi - 50s Bassman TONE Machine nice & clean ...$ 849.00
This near 40 year old Traynor YBA-4 is the famous awesome sounding All tube combo amp its tone is much like the vintage Marshall Plexi and the old 50's Fender Bassman amps. This Traynor is all TUBE and all point to point hand wired old school construction that truly is built like a tank and as a result is 100% ready for tonal warfair yo may be facing. This unit is all original and it is in TOP operating condition a true classic vintage tube amp 15" speaker combo ith another 40 years at least left on her. BIG TONE here folks reminds me of the big sound you get from the Old 64 Fender Vibroverb ( I have one of those in stock ) in your face 15" combo Cosmetics are pretty darn good too she's still a good looking amp today ... Brief Traynor History: Founded in 1963 in downtown Toronto, Yorkville Sound was formed out of the back room of the first Long & McQuade music store. The repairman at that time was Peter Traynor, and his first development was a Bass Guitar amplifier, the Traynor Dyna-Bass. From there the Traynor line of Bass Amps have had a very successful and dynamic growth, attracting attention not only in Canada, but the USA and worldwide. It should also be mentioned that many guitarists back in those days ( and still today ) were and are plugging into Bass Amps to atain their TONE. as there was a fine blurry line between whats strictly a bass amp, and what makes a great guitar amp YBA-4 amp: Features Dual pairs of inputs, dual volume controls, bass, treble, high and low (mid) range expanders, also GREAT for guitar - tubes are 2 6CA7 outputs and three 12AX7A's in the preamp (early models had 7027A o/ps and a 5AR4 rectifier). Years Made 1973-1979 Approximate Serial Number 310#### to 911#### Amp Type Tube combo (1x15") Power 45 Watts Sine Wave @ 8 Ohms 80 Watts by what Traynor calls CLIPPING this is simply bridging the bass & guitar channels together by a dual plug wire and you plug in and then you have al the controlls available on both channels cleaverly allowing the player to adjust bass - treble & volumes to your personal taste... this is an awesome feature and will allow you to get great gain & sustain to atain amazing plexi tones... Much Like the old 50's Fender Bassman & the 60's Marshal Plexi this Trayner can get you where you need to go tone wise... so its 45 watts RMS pre clipping is dead on to the 50's Bassman & the Marshall 45 Plexi.. then you clip and WoW tone becomes alive... I have a late 50's Bassman as well as a Marshall 45 Plexi and this amp stands toe to toe with either of them and this tRAYNOR is a raw boned powerhouse of TONE. This is one of the all time greatest amps for Old School Rock & Roll and is an awesome Blues amp even at 45 watts its very loud... play a large venue and clip it & your in business. Weight is 75 lbs
Here we have for your playing pleasure is a SUPER RARE 1965 Supro/Vaco Tremo-Verb its a Guitar amp and also make a hell of a great sounding Harp Amplifier as well. It has a freshish re-cap job, also at that time a 3 prong properly grounded plug was upgraded from the warn tattered original that was unsafe..thats all done now, and some replaced tubes, but everything else appears to be original. The speaker is the original 10inch Jensen. The amp sounds great, think early JImmy Page!! This amp has essentially the same preamp as the Jimmy Page Thunderbolt amp as well as the 1624 T that Jimmy also used. This amp has a very chimey tone to it, and has that compressed rock and roll tone you want to find in a real vintage Supro amp. This is no clone this is the real deal. It really does scream!! The chassis has some pitting on the top display but that just adds to its mojo. The tremolo works great as well as the reverb it is all working, but not very well its original spring unit is in the original cardboard surround box!!). and in good shape too when it came in it had no back pannel so we made a proper back panel for this deserving vintage piece of Supro Amp history the panel is made of solid poplar wood properly color matched on the outside and black inside like the originals looks alazing all round now....this is RARE...This amp is just screaming with Mojo!! Pick this rare amp up today! Thanks for looking Joe
On Aug-27-12 at 14:11:59 PDT, seller added the following information:
Tubes: (4)12AX7, (1)6V6, and (1) 5Y3
This is the MONSTER 1970's Flagship for the great KENWOOD this is the ELEVEN III receiver..
This one came in all original in good sound condition all channels working well and speaker connections are x 3 sets of speakers all good, antenna, all good all face plate is nice and its lights did not function and it was sounding scratchy in the pots when changing volume - tone and so on ..just typical clean up issues from sitting un-played for some years.. so I took it to my pro Tek's shop to have it "tuned up" he calibrates the tuner, and cleans all contacts, changes caps if bad, and replaced with factory correct bulbs and it looks beautiful now all lit up at night quite an impressive looking unit. The cabinet has not been restored and does not look too bad at all really.. We can restore it if buyer wants that service at additional or choose to easily touch it up your self but either now it sounds so clean and crisp and is MEGA Powerful it sounded like The Doobie Brothers were jamming in my living room when I crank it up.. I'm not kidding it sounds absolutely thunderous now
the back so loud and clear this thing rocks the house literally...
Why you would need such power I don't know ...ah yes I do because you love the way it sounds... very little harmonic distortion with the unit as well...so your amplifying a cleaner signal and as a result it sounds killer... OK I will get the specs posted asap but its like 125 watts RMS Per Channel if I remember correctly...
Excellent vintage condition
Made to be a Bass amp originally bass players just didn't like them that much for bass didn't sound better than the Fender Bassman but guitar players snapped them up because they R.O.C.K. in the USA!... for guitars as I'm sure you well know if your considering and looking at this Classic beautiful camp right now..
About 35 Watts of RAW BONED Vintage Dual 6L6 TUBE TONE here folks... commin at you via its Original 15" Speaker simple amp 1- Volume & 1- Tone Control the rest of the magic happens as you adjust volume and from Sparkling clean early Fender like tones to The Screamin sustain and grit nothing short of classic ROCK GOD late 1960's recordings... By Jimi, Jimmy, and many others. by the way ya know for large venues these amps miked blows away most of those powerhouse $3500 boutique compos out there...This thing KILLS...no very heavy either if that matters to you...I really like it. This is the real deal back to old school 1966 check this bad boy out..
On the way is an awesome Vintage early 1950's Gibson Tube amp the GA20 what a great sounding amp these awesome sounding amps this example is pretty clean to with its original 12" speaker and it has 2 channels 1-micraphone and 3-instrument what makes these amps so awesome sounding is you "clip" the more gain sounding Mic channel into the instrument and use both volumes and dial in some AWESOME TONES. This is a great and Classic Gibson amp and a wonderful piece of Gibson history as well... Know as the DELUXE eater. You will be surprised just how great this compact powerhous really is....
OUTSTANDING collector's condition and it sounds absolutely AMAZING..... here we are proud to present to you this Super Rare
Supro model 1624T Dual Tone amp from 1965. OK I'm sure if you have been following this amp at all over the years many say that this is the model Supro Amp that Jimmy Page used for the first two Zeppelin albums. This amp is a raging tone freak of nature Cosmetically this amp is far superior to any I have ever had or seen in this model. The grill cloth is very clean and original and their,there no major scuffs to the tolex either, The control panel and the lettering is also excellent even thought it is 50 year old and shows some patina. The knobs are all there and all original.The speaker is also original and sounds excellent+++ this amp absolutely ROARS with vintage tone and when you clip or jump the 2 channels together your in VINTAGE TONE HEAVEN. its an original vintage Supro "Jensen" alnico speaker... its been kept in a climate controlled environmentits entire life and had a cover on it when not in use ALWAYS and that's what she's soooo clean today amazingly well preserved NO scratchy pots or intermittent jacks everything works just as it should. Both channels sound great,and very different from each other,and the tremolo sounds great,too. Tubes as follows:RCA 5Y3,RCA 6973(2), 12AX7(3) We got it with its original electrical cord its the old 2 prong we will upgrade this for safety to a properly grounded and rated more heavy duty for the future 50 years when it came in I plugged my main 59 DJ Les Paul into it and didnt put it down for an hour and a half it rocks and is so much fun and in playing it hard we noticed a filter cap leaking and looked closer and see none of the caps have been changed EVER this amp is ALL ORIGINAL ...so we are going to restore its caps they were only designed to have a 10 year life span and its 50 years old now so this rebuilding will do this amp wonders and make this amp go more than another decade before updating will be done again....
Sorry SOLD OUT: WoW... just in check this cool amp out. Here we have a very cool vintage Supro Spectator 1614 B Electric Guitar Tube Amp
This little gem works absolutely great, it has nice clean sound at lower volumes and gets very late 1950's authentic rock tones along with some nice compression big time lead crunch at higher volume room to dial in exactly the tone you want it sounds absolutely amazing with a Delay I used my our( 3 ) Echoplex units this time was our green box tube echoplex ... and a Strat wow really talk about some kinda fun, No noise at all really quiet other than when you strike the string, she checks out strong no loose tube sockets. It's sound is classic SUPRO very formidable Think early Zep tone late 50's with its 10" speaker it is a surprisingly big sound from its speaker but these amps really comes alive when its miked This classic combo is made in USA by VALCO and has basically the same tube compliment as the comparable aged tweed champ at a fraction of what they run you now this is a bargain, 12ax7/6V6/5Y3. All true Point to point wiring, basically Supro's take on the tweed Princeton. This is an AWESOME sounding Amp and its excellent for recording and can be micked for a huge sustaining tone it gets that classic rock sound. These are sleepers that are an insiders secrete to true vintage tone at a fraction of its big brother the 1624t. This is a 55 year old vintage amp. Oh ya I forgot to mention it's very cool looking too. Great little amp!
Just in.......Pics soon to come!
Vintage amps are fragile, many dealers will not even ship them any more. We do our best to super pack our amps for the journey ahead of course once the amp is out of our hands and in the hands of the shipper the liability responsibility shifts to the shipping carrier and this is why we super pack our amps and fully insure them so should the unlikely happen the amp is insured and the your fully covered should something negligible happen perusing a claim with the shipper is the responsibility of the buyer.
OUT! You know what this is...

This is one of the RARE 1966 Supro Thunderbolt amps in Black tolex. This amplifier has a legendary status among guitarists worldwide. Driven much by the Jimmy Page connection and mystery surrounding the means to achieve the tone captured on the first two Led Zepplin albums. Jimi Hendrix was also known to us the Supro Thunderbolt amp from this time period. These great amps were made by the Chicago based contact manufacturing house Valco. Valco also made other consumer electronics goods along with their offering of instrument amplifiers. Valco made their own line of amplifiers as well as private labeled offerings for Wards/Airline, Gretsch, National, Oahu, Harmony, Penncrest and Supro.
Introduced in late 1964, the Thunderbolt was intended as a bass amplifier for the Jazz player. As such, it was not a good design. The baffleboard was thin and allowed too much speaker movement softening the sound. The tube rectified model also suffered power supply sage which contributed to a lack of punch. As the music of the day was moving toward a more percussive bass sound, the Thunderbolt was panned by bass players. The Thunderbolt featured a simplistic two knob control layout, (one volume and one tone) two 12AX7'S and a pair of 6L6 output tubes. The 1964 and 1965 models were covered in the gray colored "Rhino Hide" materal shown on the example to the right. This covering was listed as "Midnight Blue Vinyl" in the advertising literature. These grey models are typically fitted with a 5U4 rectifier. In 1966, Supro introduced the black tolex-like covering along with other changes. Both the tube rectified and solid state models featured the sporty white stripe that went around the outside of the cabinet. Thunderbolts began shipping with a solid state (diode bridge) rectifier sometime in mid 1966. The solid state rectifier was likely added to reduce power supply sag and crispen up the amp. The move to a solid state rectifier was accompanied with changes to the baffle board design. These changes were added to address complaints from Bass players who never really liked the amp. The power transformers used in the tube rectified and solid state models are not interchangeable. The power transformer of the solid state rectified model cannot be used as a replacement for the vacuum rectified model. The solid state model transformer lacks the 5.0 Vac winding for the vacuum rectifier heater and the high voltage winding does not have a center tap. Both model types use the same output transformer. All S6420's were fitted with a 15" Jensen Special Design speaker. The speaker was driven by a pair of 6L6GB or 6L6GC power tubes in a cathode biased arrangement. The 5881 power tube can also be used.
In late 1966 or early 1967 the S6420 model was discontinued.
Pics soon to come stay tuned
SOLD OUT we are very proud to present to you a wonderful classic early 1962 ROCK amp with a great history the Valco made Supro Model 1600R "Supreme" electric guitar amplifier. This particular example is in excellent cosmetic condition, and was made to be the companion to the much more common Supro "Reverberation" separate reverb/amp unit with an identically facia aesthetic, aside from the smaller control panel situated near the left side of the handle on the top. In fact, this amp is incredibly rare,with a center located output access to the optional Supro Reverb unit when wanted and for every 100 Reverberation units built, only 1 1600R was made. Interestingly enough, this rare amp shares a schematic and tube lay-out nearly identical to that of a 1624T, which is widely considered to be one of the best-sounding Supro amp designs ever made. Whether you're looking for an amazing-sounding Jimmy Page-style Supro amp, or an über rare Valco-made specimen, this is certainly a very cool amp to seriously consider, so
Speaker Date Code:(Jensen, early '62)
This amp Tube compliment like the 1624 is : (1) 5Y3 rectifier tube, (2) 6973 power tubes, and (2) 12AX7 preamp tubes through a 1 x 10" Jensen C10R Special Design speaker. The power tubes are US and look to be original, (1) pre-amp tube, though the amp still retains the original Philco rectifier and one RCA pre-amp tube.
The cosmetic condition of this amp is quite impressive, with no evidence of significant flaws or damage. There is really nothing to mention other than the white tube stripes having faded to a creamy brown color, although both of which are still very structurally intact and nice. The grill cloth is in perfect structural condition with a warm patina, and the tolex is in correspondingly excellent shape and patina.
Of course this amp sounds incredible. It produces fantastic overdriven crunch which seems to compliment any guitar. This particular amp sounds great with both a Tele and a Les Paul. The original speaker (with original cone) is in perfect structural condition and does not seem to exhibit any signs of fatigue.This is the one to own folks.... I love its crunch when cranked and man does this amp take pedals well tooooooo much fun.

Here we are very proud to present to you Is a classic USA made Tone Machine its the very well built 1960 SANO 30 Watt rms Stereophonic High Fidelity Amplifier
With Tremolo frequency & gain controls, Volume control + Master Volume –Bass –Treble
She has 2 channels 1-instrument, 2nd is a Stereophonic input
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
Here we just SOLD OUT: a wonderful genuine vintage 1966 Black Faced SUPER Reverb amp. This amp as an interesting history besides the Cesar Diaz master gain mods done back in the early 1980's if you haven't heard of Cesar he was famously known to be Stevie Ray Vaughn's amp tech during this time frame. This amp had toured back in the 1980s with the professional Robert Cray group. It's toured and.been around the world and then some modded back in the 80s by amp guru Cesar Diaz and has been my main all round amp since I acquired it in 1995. It's something special as it has the heavenly classic tone with an edge it has the great England made Celestian Speakers in a 2 -12" configuration that changes the voice in a way and it truly sounds so great like this I never given a thought to put this back to its original 4-10 speaker config I have a couple other BF Supers with the std config and I really love this Diaz amp. It does the smaller venues great with that master volume you can really dial in your tone at lower volumes very nicely. I used it at home to it can do the Princeton Reverb sound at lower volumes pretty well and was quite nice for recording as well. This has been my amp for the past 20 years I hate to see her go but I have not played it that much at all the past several years it's just collecting dust her and that's a shame so it's time to let her go to some pro that wants this awesome cool blues machine. It's overall condition is pretty darn good it's sounding good right now but it honestly has been sitting unused and has collected a bit of dust so electronics could use a bit of cleaning I just ran her for an hour early she starts right up and is pretty quiet but when turning pots I get some. Low volume scratchy sounds then it settles down when not touching the knobs I turned the knows vigorously back and forth and that quieted it down and that's a clear sign of needing deox type of pot cleaning probably could use a tune up but it's tubes are good it's sounding good and strong and awesome and reverb is lush as can be. It's in very good shape overall. Not new or mint of course this amp is 49 years old and by the sound of it good to go another 49 with proper maintainable and care. Woodwork is very solid and 100% tolex is 8/10 pretty darn good for a 49 year old with a history.
I was just luck and at the right place at the right time when acquired this amp from a family member back in 1995 outside of another music store that low balled the seller I gave him what he wanted and never regretted it.
Neither will you it's a very cool amp and she's also EZ on the eyes!

Fender Princeton Reverb 1969, Model AA746 Blackline, Dripedge.
The Princeton Reverb is the smallest of the Silverface Fender amp with both tremolo and reverb. With a 10 inch speaker run by a 12-15W dual 6V6 amp, This model is the original prefered AA764 pre-CBS circuitry exactly the same as some of those $ 4,500 Black faced amps you may have seen out there today .....it delivers a true “American” Fender tone with a sweet punchy, responsive lows together with chimey highs. When it is cranked it tends to sound a bit “browner” than the bigger two-channel amps, meaning more breakup in the lower frequencies and mid-focused tone. A true collectors must and a players must have dream. These are the originals the best!
She has its Original speaker. Original trem/rev foot switch. Power cord has been replaced with 3-prong cord.
Built in 1969

The original speaker still sounds GREAT and sweet and responsive and is great for recording at lower volume up to about "3" on this amp is pretty loud and fine for living room and recording at lower volume but when pushed much above 3 it gets flabby and will distort more as you increase volume up so it will need a redone in its future but really still performing pretty good to this day but I have used this WGS speaker in it now for months and it just kills in this amp I love the PUSH PULL gain control on this amp it really sounds Great and allows to stress the tubs at lower volumes for in living room or office ,,, your going to want this feature if you want to crank this baby up with its big head room for a deluxe Reverb this is the speaker your going to keep in the amp... You get both with this purchase the original speaker and the WGS 12" ceramic speaker. The Original is currently in it as the WGS was used for another recording project with an old Supro and was put back into its original WGS box. Shipping will include both the amp and the WGS speaker. Your going to love this amp!

some more info about the Rivera Era amps.
Due to the steep decline in amplifier sales in the late ’70s and early ’80s, Fender restructured their amplifier design team in 1982 and decided to bring aboard a well known heavy hitter Paul Rivera—of Rivera Amplification fame—this elite team moved forward quickly in creating the II Series of great again Fender Amps, which were produced from 1982 until 1986. Often called “Rivera-era amps,” this short run line included recognizable model names like the Princeton Reverb Showman, Deluxe Reverb, and Twin Reverb, as well as new models, like the Studio Lead, London Reverb, and Montreux. Each model sported its own unique features one or more modern upgrades, including master volume controls, channel switching, active tone controls,, among others.
The featured here is one of the greats with its circuitry upgrades and is housed in a more traditional cabinetry with an obvious nod to the early days of Fender black faced amplifiers,
