I'm in love totally and on the verge of trying to do a deal on it (Rob knows the kind if deals I've had in "this" shop in the past)

Do any of you guys have any experience of these bad boys

It's 1969/70 blackface circuit silver face super reverb - original CTS Alnicos and valves

It's in a hell of a state cosmetically though but sounds like thunder.

My issue is will it be reliable enough to gig with assuming my tech has looked it right over

  • As long as it has been serviced, just about Bomb Proof Mon Ami.  ;) ;) ;)

    If you lend someone ?20 and never see that person again, it was probably well worth it.

  • You lucky dog, you. Those are great amps. Several of my friends have them, and they sound HUGE!
