One of the cats brought in a small bird which escaped behind my amp piles, so I had to move them all. Good hint its time for a clear out. Most of these have probably been seen on ebay. Note I’m not a pro amp repair person, just a dedicated amateur, so consider these as you would second hand amps that are well maintained not fully pro serviced/guaranteed, although ask anyone who has bought an amp from me, my after sales support is pretty good.
I can ship worldwide, ideal scenario is I pack and you arrange your own courier, that way in case of damage in transit, you have the evidence and the contract. Check elsewhere in blog for pics.
Orange PA120: Sold
Laney Protube AOR series 2 100w valve guitar amp
These are fairly close to a beefed up two channel Marshall, bit more bottom end and gain on tap and much nicer cleans. As with all my amps, it has had a basic going over, stuff cleaned, inside dusted, valves checked. Welcome to come give it a try with my nice cabs. SOLD
Classic British handwired valve amplifier, gives classic Sabbathy dirty tones with the Klipp circuit and nice loud Laney cleans on the normal channel. This has been revalved, recapped, pots cleaned and had various minor things fixed. I have replaced the power lead with an inline IEC socket for convenience without having to cut the chassis. The clean channel has surprisingly little background noise (like none, was worried there was no output for a sec, until I actually played through it), guess the nice new caps were to do with that.
Also include is its dust cover, I assume it to be the original one. SOLD
Hiwatt DR203 PA
This one I’m not definitely selling, might snatch it back so PM before you set your heart on it. Tidiest wired amp I’ve laid eyes on, and sounds immense, but likely to play second fiddle to a couple of my other amps I sue for low end in my rig (my Matamp and my Burman). Loaded with a tested good set of KT88 and a bunch of various old stock preamp valves form my personal stash, all original inside, with inked solder joints etc, and no background hiss due to awesome wiring and top end components. £1100
Carlsbro 100 Bass head late 60s. This one has top end C-Core transformers, which are pretty rare in instrument amps, more often found in super high fidelity stuff like studio gear. Also they look really awesome:
All the electrolytics have been replaced, and it has been revalved with nice modern valves. Did a fair bit of work to this one, kind of like old Carlsbros, and this is a top end one, on eyelet board inside. SOLD
Mac multi purpose Italian amp. This is an oddity, it has a bunch of AC30 going on, with a built in tremelo and a spring reverb, made for multi purpose use. Being around 30w means Doom bass isn’t one of those purposes. Great for keys and funny guitar noises. Didn’t do much with this aside from clean it (which it needed) and had the valves checked. [SOLD]
Vampower 100w PA. This one is a bit of a rarity, and built to a very high quality level. Too high for them to keep in business sadly, so very few units were produced. This also has C-core transformers. As far as I recall this is also loaded with its original valves that all tested good. I’ll need to verify but its quite far down in the pile, so will do that at request. £450
Nolan 100w. Irish made heavily influenced by Marshall but with better transformers (Partridge). Really nice sounding amp. £450
Stak by MJB Electronics stack. 130w head (4 EL34 and nice transformers) and a 18″ W horn cab. I spoke to the guy who designed and built these, the cab was ‘designed’ by senidng his carpenter mate to the local music shop showroom with a tape measure, looks like he picked out an Acoustic 361 to measure up. The head is fairly simple Fender style preamp, simple but made really well, which is the best way for valve amps to be. This is mostly for sale just to lose the cab, takes up loads of room, but too much of a shame to split them. The original Gauss driver with a voice coil rub will be included, there is an Eminence 18 in the cab currently. [SOLD]
