*Used in good condition*
A sleeper amp for your studio. It is totally a one-trick pony that only does one thing well. When you turn it up to full volume, it becomes an overdriven monster. The rest of the time, it's an ok solid state amp.
It's a solid state amp serviced by two different techs. One--located in Nashville, TN--who appeared to not know what he was doing. The other was the legendary Gene Stang--the totally overqualified amp repair genius at Weber Speakers.
First, let's talk about the Nashville tech who shall be referred to for the rest of this listing as "the first guy". This gentleman replaced the power cable with a grey extension cord (which works, but does not scream "I repair amps in a professional manner") and replaced a couple of caps. It was not fixed and "the first guy's" plan was to keep replacing parts until something finally fixed the amp. "The first guy" was taken off the job.
Next, Gene Stang of Weber Speakers took a swing at it. He used his standard meters and tools of the trade to find the actual faulty parts in the amp. He also used this wild new invention called a schematic (which is evidently some kind of magic paper that tells you what value parts go in what place--maybe I should have contacted "the first guy" and told him about this new concept). Needless to say, Gene fixed the amp. He also found that an unusual modification had been done a long time ago. Someone had replaced the power transformer with a smaller one. It probably shouldn't have worked, but it's actually the secret of its cool sound. When you crank the amp up, it doesn't get super loud, but it sure breaks up great.
It also has a really nice tremolo and a reverb that actually sounds more like slapback delay. Ideal for gnarly blues. ESPECIALLY IDEAL FOR SLIDE GUITAR!!
Oh yeah, It's got a Weber speaker, too (12" Signature S)
