Mark Kane 50w  EL34  with Built-In Dumbleator!  BRAND NEW Authorized Dealer !

Mark Kane 50w EL34 with Built-In Dumbleator! BRAND NEW Authorized Dealer !

Brand New!  Authorized Dealer!  RARE Dealer Stock!  Avoid the 8-10 week wait!

Patterned after Dumble #183 this 50-watt (EL34 version) has all the sustain, chime, note bloom and touch sensitivity you are dreaming of when you decide upon a D-style amp.  We have sold dozens upon dozens of Mark’s amps to collectors and players around the planet.  They have seen Youtube videos, read up, tried all the others…then they get the Mark Kane and the reviews uninmously declare it the winner.

This particular head has a BUILT-IN “dumbleator” which is a key part of achieving the D tone.  Typically this comes as a stand-alone 1-rack unit. Mark has recently decided to incorporate the unit into the head itself!

Satisfaction Promise:  If you purchase THIS BRAND NEW MARK KANE AMP…as the original owner YOU are entitled to up to two free re-voicings (you pay shipping both ways).

Invest in a true classic.  I have never once heard a complaint about any of Mark’s amps….that says a TON in a day and age where people love to hear themselves gripe.

1984 PRS Pre-Factory Metal Prototype #1 – Documented & Celeb Owned!

1984 PRS Pre-Factory Metal Prototype #1 – Documented & Celeb Owned!

See this on REVERB.Com:    https://reverb.grsm.io/33104934-paul-reed-smith-prs-metal-prototype-1-1984-pre-factory-ted-nugent-owned

 

Made by Paul Reed Smith….not the company….THE guy…before there was a PRS factory.  This is THE PROTOTYPE of the Metal.  It is from 1984 and is the #1 prototype documented from factory (included).  It is in Excellent Condition with the Original Hard Case and Tool.  Pickups are hand wound by Paul.

Extensive documentation and pictures of Ted Nugent with this guitar are included with the sale.

Paul took this piece as a sample to New Orleans and it was scooped up by Ted Nugent.  Ted “borrowed” this piece and played it in such iconic performances as his jam with Eddie Van Halen (pictures included) and Texas Jam.

This is a collector quality piece that also sounds & plays amazing.  Vintage PRS Guitars are priced extremely well and are poised for long-term appreciation relative to their peers.  If you watch the major vintage player sites, clean examples of F and G have been moving at ever increasing prices.  Don’t sleep on this.  It’s not another sunburst F…..it’s THE Metal that we all lusted after when we were younger and broke.

Fender Nocaster 1951 – Collector Condition with Case & BROCHURE ! Just 6 lb-4oz

Fender Nocaster 1951 – Collector Condition with Case & BROCHURE ! Just 6 lb-4oz

1951 Fender Nocaster Telecaster in Excellent Collector Quality Condition.   Just 6lb-4oz.  Serial 1322.  Just a WOW piece to play.  The high notes are so fat and nothing like anything I’ve ever heard.  People who play this smile.  It is a once in a lifetime piece.  I simply feel it is best in the hands of someone who will play this and enjoy it more than I can.

2 Owner Piece that is virtually excuse free.  Light wear and light checking but no replaced parts.  Let’s get the questions out of the way:

  • ORIGINAL FINISH
  • ORIGINAL FRETS
  • ORIGINAL CASE
  • Original Wiring Scheme (with Mud Setting).
  • ORIGINAL PICKUPS (no rewinds)
  • ORIGINAL BROCHURE (not a copy)
  • Does not come with Fender Sign shown in picture
  • YES IT COMES WITH THE ORIGINAL STRAP
  • YES it has the ORIGINAL ASHTRAY COVER
  • ORIGINAL TUNERS (never swapped out)
  • ORIGINAL NUT
  • ORIGINAL POTS
  • ORIGINAL JACK
  • Original Guard
  • Strings are modern (LOL)

Only 2 things were ever done to this piece.  When I received the guitar the wire from one pickup had deteriorated at the connection point to the 3-way.  I had Phil Jacoby re-solder the wire to the connection.  It literally had just come off & nothing more.   Second, the neck pickup base had deteriorated over time at the point where it was screwed into the body.  I had Phil Jacoby make an unobtrusive support (detailed pictures available).  Literally some double sided take and plastic.  That’s all for ‘stories”.

Please no silly lopsided trade offers.

Please no ‘best price?” emails….if you wish to make an actionable & firm offer please do so and I will consider it.

Standel / Requisite Audio Super Single-Ended

Standel / Requisite Audio Super Single-Ended

Impossibly Rare STANDEL / Requisite Audio SUPER SINGLE-ENDED Head! This was custom ordered by our best customer.  LOADED with features such as an effects loop.   Smoke Free environment and never gigged.  BARELY used.   Hard to find a mark on it but we’re certain you’ll fire up the ol’ electron microscope so we will grade it as EXCELLENT rather than Mint.

Comes with Matching Cab that is loaded with a Vintage Jensen Speaker (selected by Danny and created with cabinet as part of package to original owner).

Tonal flexibility at low volumes?  CHECK.  The switches and knobs are about as interactive as you could ever hope for.  You can FEEL the amp respond differently as you cycle through the options.  IT plays SO well with different varieties of speakers.  I had an absolute blast with this and my effects board of classic overdrives….LOVES pedals.

This amp has zero mods and no repairs or issues.  Hand created and a MUST have for anyone who wants to feel & hear nuance in their playing.
