c1979 Jim Kelley 30/60 – Celeb Owned
Description:

Impossibly rare c1979 Jim Kelley 30/60.  Celeb owned and it has a plaque to prove it.  This amp is just WOW sounding.  The cleans and note bloom are haunting.  As a pedal platform….probably the best I’ve ever experienced.   As you probably know, Jim is now making a new version of the Line Amp in extremely limited quantities (I believe 7 total) that are being auctioned off.

I rescued this from Hollywood where it was left in a state of neglect.  It had been blowing fuses…so I took it to the best amp tech in the Midatlantic.  We determined that the amp needed new tubes and fresh caps…so I paid him to do this.  Also, my tech put the amp on a scope and determined that the wave the Output Transformer was putting out was way out of whack (sign of a lot of use with an attenuator).   I contacted Jim Kelley who was SUPER COOL and offered to sell me a replacement Output Transformer (same one used in his current amps).  My tech installed it and WOW.

So here is your chance to get an amp that has fresh service and a known history.  You’re not paying top dollar for some hidden issues.  Cosmetics are, as you can see, worn.   You’re buying this to play….enjoy it and use it.  USE it.
