Description: Baldwin C1 Guitar Amplifier


Due to the weight and age of this amp it is offered to buyers in the lower 48 states U.S. only.


I believe this is the same amp that Willie Nelson uses and plays   "Trigger" through. It was available with different speaker configuration. This is the 2-12 model.  It is labled Custom and Professional.


This vintage U.S. made amp was manufactured in the late half of the 60's. It is solid state. 45 watts RMS. Two 12" speakers. Two channels. It features the "Supersound" colored push button control that works like a pre-set equalizer. A three way switch selects supersound, normal, or a mix of the two. This really offers a wide spectrum of sound.


The buttons on the supersound are: Treble, Mid 1, Mix, Mid 2, and Bass


Channel 1 has controls for Volume, Bass, Treble


Channel 2 has controls for Volume, Bass, Treble, Tremolo Speed, Tremolo Intensity, and Reverb


All controls and effects work. The footpedal is included. One switch on the pedal in not working. It is the switch not the chord or amp. I checked it out when I had it open but I don't have a replacement switch.

You can use the switch that is working to turn on/off the reverb or the tremolo depending on which jack you plug the working side into. It would be an easy fix if you got a new switch.

Compared to some modern amps I have opened up this thing is built like a tank. There are bolts into plywood where todays amps have screws into particle board. The pots, jacks, and switches are substantial and not like those sad half/plastic jobbers that you see now.

There are rust marks on the speaker frames and various bolts and screws. The electronics look fine. There is rust on the footswitch and handle end covers.

The speaker cones are in good condition and the amp sounds clean and loud. No distortion or distortion controls. In it's day this amp was advertised as an amplification system for classical guitar. It would work very well for any acoustic / electric instrument.


On the outside it looks good but has a lots a minor cosmetic wear. The cover over the supersound buttons has abrasion. The speaker cloth front and back is on good shape with no tears. The inside faces of both end panels are covered with a very thin textured tin foil material and this got torn on both sides when I took the amp out of the cabinet ( see photos)

The amp measures 28" wide, 18 1/2" high, and 10" deep. It weighs 50 pounds.


The packaged weight is 60 pounds and the box measures 33" x 21" x17". It is packed in a plastic bag surrounded with thick styrofoam and heavy paper packing inside the box.
