The Princeton was first made in 1947; these amps were noted for their tone and versatility and were used very commonly as studio recording amps due to their quality of sound. The Princeton circuit 5F2-A was introduced in 1956.
It was essentially a slightly modified version of the Champ that allowed for slightly higher gain preamplifier tubes, and added the tone controls that were absent in the Champs. The Princeton amp uses 1 12AX7 pre-amp tube, 1 6V6GT output
tube and a 5Y3 rectifier. This is built as a table top model and is completely exposed. It may be the least expensive handbuilt tube amp in America. This model is in stock and available for pickup!!! Call for shipping options.
The Champ was first introduced in 1948. The Champ had the lowest power output and the simplest circuit for all of the tube amps. It has only one power tube, which meant that the circuit is single-ended and class A. Five watts and the simple toneful circuit
allowed the Champ to be used easily and often in recording studios. In 1958, the model 5F1 was introduced. It features an 8” speaker, 1 12AX7 pre-amp tube, 1 6V6GT output tube and a 5Y3 rectifier tube producing about 5 watts.
The Tweed Deluxe Style amp is modeled after the later narrow panel models, which were the most popular out of all of the Tweed era amps. This class AB tube amp brings the tonal versatility made famous by its original counterpart. The Tweed Deluxe was
known as a wonderful studio amplifier due in part to its ability to cover so much musical territory. The Model 5E3 was first made in 1955. The Deluxe amp of the 1950s was a medium powered unit designed to let guitarists "hold their own"
in a small group. As Blues, Western, and Rockabilly bands began getting louder, the overdriven tone of a cranked-up Deluxe found its way onto countless live and recorded performances. Over the past decades players of every conceivable
style have employed this tone machine for its unmistakable rich tube tone. The Deluxe was the most popular of the Tweed amplifiers made. It is relatively small in size, having one twelve inch speaker. It has four inputs and two channels.
Each channel has a volume control. Both channels share a tone control. The inputs and controls are mounted at the top of the amplifier. It is often referred to as the "Tweed Deluxe" because of its covering - a light brown material which
is actually a cotton twill. At the time, Leo Fender produced amplifiers with the intention of having the amplifier stay clean even at high volumes. The Tweed Deluxe is not known for producing a clean tone at high volumes, and as such,
was regarded as being an intermediate amplifier. Ironically, the saturated tone this amplifier produces at higher volumes is the reason why it is one of the more famous amplifiers ever produced. It is part of the signature tone for many
musicians, a few notable examples being Larry Carlton, Don Felder, Billy Gibbons, and Neil Young. This is a Class AB amp, delivering 15 watts output power. It uses 2 6V6GT output tubes, 1 5Y3 rectifier tube and 2 pre-amp tubes, a 12AX7WA
and a 12AY7. The speaker is a 12" Jensen 35 watt C120.
The Vibrolux was introduced in 1956. They were the only Tweed amps with tremolo until 1959. This amp has TONE to die for. One of the sweetest sounding amps I have built!!! Using 2 12AX7 pre-amp tubes, a 5Y3 rectifier tube and 2 6V6GT
output tubes into a 10” speaker made this amp extremely versatile and was in great demand as a studio amp.
In 1956, Model 5E8-A was introduced. This version was rated at 50 watts and had many major revisions to the original design. This version is the most coveted of all Twin amps because of its lush tones and massive volume. The Twin Amp was used by The Beatles,
Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, and Jerry Garcia. Output: 45 watts, Circuit: 5E8-A, Class AB all Tube Amplifier, Fixed Bias. Using: 2 5U4GB rectifiers, 2 6L6GC output tubes, 1 12AX7 and 3 12AY7 pre-amp tubes delivered into
2 Jensen C12Q 35-watt speakers.
A recreation of the classic Tweed era Twin High Power! This amp delivers all of the warmth and tone you would expect out of the original and more! Pumping 80 watts of pure tube tone through two genuine Jensen C12N speakers, this amp is really killer.
Output: 80 watts, Circuit: 5F8A, Class AB all Tube Amplifier, Fixed Biased This amp uses a 5U4GB rectifier. 4 6L6GC output tubes, and 2 12AX7 and 1 12AY7 pre-amp tubes into 2 Jensen C12N 50 watt speakers.
Tweed Bassman 5F6-A $1500 The Bassman amp was first introduced in 1952. By 1958 it had evolved to the model 5F6-A. This is the iconic 4 x 10 narrow panel Tweed Bassman. It was the most powerful bass amp of its time and was also widely
used for guitar. The tone from this amp is phenomenal. This version of the Bassman is considered by many to be “The One!” Perhaps the highest compliment is that this is the model Jim Marshall patterned his first amp (the JTM45) after.
This all tube Class AB amp become your go-to amp very quickly. Powered with 12AX7's and 6L6's, this amp isn't just a tone monster, but offers plenty of headroom for bigger gigs and even pedals. Included are four Jensen C10Qs, 8Ohm 35 watt
speakers that will ooze out creamy blues tones from the first note all the way to the last. Class AB all Tube Amplifier Output: ~40 watts Circuit: 5F6-A Fixed Bias 2 Matched 6L6WGC Vacuum Tubes 1 GZ34/5AR4 Rectifier Vacuum Tube 2 12AX7

PRO 5E5-A The Pro Amp was first introduced in 1947 and was a monster!!! The 5E5-A was introduced in 1956 and still used a 15” speaker but had tone controls and a presence control added. The Tweed Pro Amp delivers beautiful cleans and thunderous lows and
can hold its own on any stage. It utilizes 1 12AY7 and 2 12AX7 pre-amp tubes, 1 5U4GB rectifier tube and a pair of 6L6GC output tubes into a 15” 50 watt speaker.
The Twin Reverb was first introduced in 1963. The amplifier's output is rated at 85 watts into a 4-ohm speaker load. The circuit used is commonly known as the AB763 circuit. The Twin Reverb amplifiers use four output tubes, of the 6L6GC type. They use
six preamp tubes, consisting of four 12AX7 types and two 12AT7 types. The Twin Reverb has two independent channels, labeled Normal and Vibrato. The controls have black-skirted knobs numbered from 1 to 10. The Normal channel has two inputs,
a "bright" switch (which compensates for loss of brightness through the volume control when the control is set lower than about "6" on its 1-10 scale), a volume control, treble, middle and bass tone controls. The Vibrato channel has a
duplication of the same controls as the normal channel, plus the addition of reverb, vibrato speed and intensity controls. Reverb is accomplished with a tube/transformer driven low impedance spring reverb tank. The addition of the reverb
circuit requires an additional "gain" stage in the preamp, and as such, the Vibrato channel is capable of a bit more distortion when the volume is set high. Some notable artists who used this amp: Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards,
and Jerry Garcia. Class AB All Tube Amplifier Output: ~85 Watts Circuit: AB763 Fixed Bias w/ adjustable bias pot
Class AB All Tube Amplifier Output: ~22 Watts Circuit: AB763 Fixed Bias with an adjustable bias potentiometer The Deluxe Reverb is a 22-watt tube amplifier (at 8 ohms), powered by a pair of 6V6GT power tubes, one GZ34/5AR4 rectifier tube, four 12AX7 tubes
for preamplification and tremolo oscillation, and two 12AT7 tubes driving the reverb and phase inverter circuits. This amplifier uses a Jensen C-12Q series 12-inch loudspeaker. The 22 Watt output was obtained by operating the 6V6 power
tubes well in excess of their maximum specified operating voltages. This amp was first introduced in 1963. The AB763 came out in 1965 and was the best sounding of the circuits.
The Princeton Reverb is a guitar amplifier combo, with built-in reverb and vibrato. The 12 Watt Blackface version, Model AA 1164 was introduced in 1964. This model was a favorite among studio musicians being the smallest amp with Tremolo and Reverb. Class
AB All Tube Amplifier, Output: - 12-15 Watts, Circuit: AA1164, Fixed Bias This amp uses a GZ34 rectifier, 2 6V6GT output tubes, 3 12AX7 and 1 12AT7 pre-amp tubes, delivered through a Jensen C10Q 35 watt speaker.
Blackface bassman head, Model AA864, with tube rectifier. The Bassman is a legendary guitar amp known to both guitar and bass players. The Bassman is known for its simple, pure and raw tone. It is 50w loud. The bass channel of the AA864 is much mellower
and deeper than the normal channel of other Blackface amps since it is voiced for bass guitars. The Bassman bass channel features a deep switch that can remove the lowest frequencies, which is practical when you’re playing loud and using
different speaker cabinets where you need to adjust the lower bass. The normal channel is more relevant for guitar players.
The Super Reverb was first introduced in 1963. This was essentially a Super 5F4 (Tweed series) amplifier with built-in reverb and vibrato. The Super Reverb amplifier is an all-tube design and features spring reverb. The Super Reverb
uses 4 12AX7 and 2 12AT7 pre-amp tubes and 2 6L6GT output tubes and a GZ34 rectifier tube. I just finished this run and the Super Reverb is the best sounding Blackface amp I make. So sweet!!!
Now with Master Volume control The 1959 (Marshall's identifying numbers are not years of manufacture), first produced in 1965. One of its raisons d'etre was a request by Pete Townshend, who asked Marshall to make a 100 watt amplifier; Ken Bran and Dudley
Craven of Marshall's development team complied. It is typically played through 1 or 2 4x12 cabinets. The Plexiglas panel led to the name "Plexi", the 1959 100 watt model is often referred to as the "original" Plexi. Technical specifications
The 1959 had 100 watts of power, two channels, and four inputs. They are equipped with four EL34 tubes; it had three ECC83 tubes in the pre-amplification stage. The lead channel has a boosted bright tone, and the rhythm channel has a flat
response. Each channel has a high and a low gain input; the low gain input is attenuated by 6 dB. Notable early users: Besides Pete Townshend of The Who, early users include Eric Clapton, who in 1966, when he founded Cream, traded in his
famous Bluesbreaker combo for a 1959 Plexi, and Jimi Hendrix, who used a 1959 with four 4x12" cabinets (his "couple of great refrigerators") at the 1969 Woodstock Festival and established the Marshall as the "definitive rock amp". Other
notable users • Angus Young • Eddie Van Halen • Billie Joe Armstrong • Jason White • Jimi Hendrix • Graham Coxon • Jimmy Page • Johnny Ramone 1966 100 Watt Super Lead All Tube Amplifier Output: ~100 Watts

The JCM800 series is a line of guitar amplifiers made by Marshall Amplification. First built in 1981, the JCM800 became a staple of 1980s hard rock music. The first JCM800 was in fact a Master Volume amplifiers (Models 2204), repackaged in new boxes with
new panels. The amplifier is equipped with EL34 output tubes and ECC83 pre-amp tubes. The JCM800 is considered a "hot" amplifier because it has more gain stages than comparable amplifiers, and in "lead" mode (in the "high" input), an extra
triode provides extra gain to the pre-amplifier, which "made for one hot rock amp". Notable users: • Billie Joe Armstrong • Jeff Beck • Billy Corgan • Buddy Guy • Tom Morello • Slash • Leslie West • Zakk Wylde • Lee Malia
• Kevin Shields • Angus Young Class A/B Tube Amplifier Output - ~50 Watts Circuit/Model - 2204 Fixed Bias with an adjustable bias potentiometer
18 Watt Combo If you are looking for an amplifier that is compact, lightweight, but powerful, this is the jewel for you. It produces beautiful cleans and one of the best distortion tones ever produced. The 18 watt amplifier is the epitome of perfect vintage

The Marshall JTM 45 is the first guitar amplifier made by Marshall. First produced in 1962, it has been called a "seminal" amplifier, and is praised as the most desirable of all the company's amplifiers. This was the first amplifier Marshall ever built,
based off of the Fender Bassman 5F6A circuit. Favored by blues and rock guitarists, this amp can produce a warm sustain and elegant clean tones, with a pronounced rectifier "sag." Played by guitar greats such as Eric clapton, Angus Young,
and Gary Moore. The Bluesbreaker, which derives its nickname from being used by Eric Clapton with John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, is credited with delivering "the sound that launched British blues-rock in the mid-1960s." It was Marshall's
first combo amplifier, and was described as "arguably the most important [amplifier) in the company's history" and "the definitive rock amplifier." The JTM 45 model 1987 in a 2-12 combo package was first offered in 1965. Class A/B all
Tube Amplifier, Output: 54 watts, Circuit: 1987, Fixed Biased w/ adjustable potentiometer This amp uses a GZ34 rectifier, 2 EL34 output tubes. and 3 12AX7 pre-amp tubes through 2 12" 60 watt speakers.
The Super evolved from the Dual Professional, "often cited as the world's first twin-speaker amplifier," which was introduced in 1947. The Dual Professional had two 10" Jensen speakers and two 6L6 tubes producing 18 watts. It
was renamed the Super in the fall of 1947. The amplifier's circuit was changed in 1956 to the 5F4 circuit, making it identical to the Pro (5E5-A model, 1 15” speaker) and the Bandmaster (5E7 model, 3 10” speakers). The 5F4 model had Presence,
Bass, and Treble controls, and separate Volume controls for the microphone and instrument inputs. It used 12AY7 pre-amplifier tubes for more clarity and headroom than a 12AX7 could provide. A fixed-bias output stage and split-phase inverter
helped the Super overdrive more quickly than the Fender Bassman and produce a sound that, according to Vintage Guitar's Dave Hunter, "in the estimation of many a vintage-amp fan, is among the sweetest and most delectable of any amp ever
