1949 Kay Guitar Amp Project Speaker needs to be RECONED has transformer
here is a vintage 1940's or early 1950's electromuse tube amplifier for guitar, harp or what ever you need to amplify and have sound cool. this amp works and sounds great. super warm overdrive at a not so loud volume. perfect for recording or small jams/gigs. i auditioned it with both guitar and harp. my controlled reluctance mic pushes it very well. super fat harmonica tones and you can get it cranked all the way up, or close to it, in a small space.
has what i believe to be the original speaker, as i had another one of these years ago with the same speaker, but with a silver frame instead of black. the five tubes are: 5y3, 2 x 6sn7 and 2 x 6v6. all the tubes tested good. there are a few extra holes in the back and a couple of very small ones on the side that are not noticeable. the covering is in good shape for being about 60 years old oil cloth. a really great looking and sounding amp. these are hard to find, especially in working order. has a little crackle as it warms up, typical for older tube gear. a fantastic addition to many collections.
pay pal payments only. payment due within 72 hours of invoice. i'll ship this amp anywhere in the world, but, south america, australia and asia will be very expensive due to postal service size restrictions.On Nov-04-10 at 11:00:10 PDT, seller added the following information:
i forgot to mention, these amps were made by valco, one of the best manufacturers of instrument amplifiers, ever.
the speaker is rated at 4 ohms and the amp makes about 10 watts of output at 4 ohms.
