    1961 Ampeg M-12 Tube Question

    That is a great idea from Antony. I run a bucking transformer with my 62 Ampeg Reverberocket and my older Gretsch/Valco amps. They sound better and they run cooler. Thanks john

    Bassman Speaker Question

    The speakers in your cab are Jensen Vibranto/Concert speakers. They are replacement speakers from 1967 or so and could have been installed soon after the amp was new. LMI refers to Lifetime Musical Instrument and they are ceramic [Syntox]. These can be very nice speakers if in good condition and...

    New Old Ampeg Day

    I appreciate all the comments. As I said I was chasing this amp for a while as I wanted this particular configuration and I am not disappointed in the least. It has a great tone and bloom. It is as good an the best of my amps so it is a real keeper. I was out of town for a long weekend and...

    New Old Ampeg Day

    I guess your correct but I consider the tubes, capacitors, cord as necessary replacement items. The stock I was referring to was transformers, speaker, reverb pan, covering and grill cloth, knobs. I was chasing this amp because I wanted the octal preamp tubes and 6V6 power tubes. The navy random...

    New Old Ampeg Day

    I wasn't going to buy any more amps but we know how that goes. I have been chasing this Feb of 1962 Ampeg R-12R Reverberocket for over a year now and finally the price came to where I thought was fair. The amp has the random navy flair covering and grill cloth all in great shape for such an old...

    Got Tweed?

    To those that commented on my Guild guitar, it is a Guild GSR Starfire VI made in New Hartford CT at the old Guild/ Hammer and Ovation factory. It has a laminated spruce top and is 15 of 18 made. My wife bought it for me. Thanks all for the comments. John

    Getting down with the browns and blonds

    Since we were doing a tweed thread I thought I would start one on brown face amps. The wife was out last night and I pulled these out of the music room. 1962 Pro and it's voluptuous little sister my 1962 Vibrolux. Both loaded with vintage Jensen speakers. Show off your brownface amps. Thanks John

    The big "Show your mini amps" thread.

    I guess I could throw this one in the mix. It's a 1967 Gretsch 6152 built by Valco. It is 5W with reverb and tremolo and a 12" Jensen C12R Thanks John .
