1966 Fender Princeton Reverb – Collector Clean

1966 Fender Princeton Reverb – Collector Clean

Super Clean 1966 Fender Princeton Reverb.  Even has the original footswitch!  I am not an expert on these circuits so I can’t tell you if any of the resistors etc  have been changed (pictures provided).  I can tell you the iron is original.  The tolex and grillecloth are original.  The speaker is original but fresh recone from Orange County (Speaker Repair Co now).

Glorious sounding PR with a very lush reverb (some are dark sounding verbs that sound like crap..this one is lush and alive).    Comes only with what you see here.  If you don’t see it then it isn’t included.  Ie for example it does not have the cover…why?…because…oh wait you get it…ok.

1958 Fender High Powered Tweed –  Near Mint

1958 Fender High Powered Tweed – Near Mint

Collector WOW Condition 1958 Fender Tweed Twin HIGH POWERED with original case, tubes and tweed.   This is a once in a lifetime type piece.  Not I am selling this one but will entertain serious offers.  If you have a trade I will consider it but let’s be up-front that it would have to be equally clean and desirable gear for me to part with this.

Enjoy!  It is a pleasure to own this and it will be a pleasure to share my enthusiasm for it with you.

Gurus BRIVIDO Head !

Gurus BRIVIDO Head !

BRAND NEW FROM GURUS!  This is the FIRST in the UNITED STATES! Only Phil X has one for his upcoming tour with Bon Jovi.   This amp is BRAND NEW.  I am an Authorized Dealer.   This very amp was lent to a major publication for review. During the shipment the back panel bent ever so slightly (see pics).  It would likely easily bend back but I am leaving it as it is.  I priced it at a discount to reflect the slight damage.  FULL WARRANTY

Here is a link to the website with all the specs/info;

“BRIVIDO” is the first of a products range that will be unified under the same concept.

“Brivido” take his name from the emotion we felt on its first hearing.. we could translate it as “Thrill” or “Shiver”, something you can feel when music or tone are able to touch your soul and expand your creativity.

We took inspiration from an idea of the 60’ era, where some crazy engineer designed tube power modules for Juke-box and live clubs. Made by few EL34 running in a very higher voltage than any others. Restoring many of these old modules, we found it a very good idea to be applied in a modern guitar amp, with some mods to increase his performances and safety as well.
But this idea let us reach some of the most important results of our career, creating something can be defined as the “holy grail” of guitar amps. It works with just the double of dynamic range of any other existing amp, and you can feel it under your fingers. It can generate unbelievable power by only 2 tubes, more than 100W RMS, moreover, it sounds totally in the same way at any volume level, offering the best guitar tones you already know, but with unexpected dynamic, touch response and so easy to play.
And this is the aim that all manufacturers has tried to achieve for many years. We made it as a three channel amp head, to let you try its incredible possibilities in every application. You wouldn’t believe the dynamic of a “Brivido” until you’ll not tried out one

Callaham LIVERPOOL

Callaham LIVERPOOL

I was very fortunate to have spent hours on the phone with Kenny Fischer.  I’m not saying we were best friends.  I am saying we spoke regularly and sent each other CDs…stuff like that.  Great man who shared his knowledge with anyone who was decent to him.   Ken often spoke of a few builders whose work he liked.  Bill Callaham was one such name mentioned.

Here we have one of the rarest amps on the planet.  Bill Callaham hand crafted this “Liverpool” back before the boutique craze invaded us with everybody who could get to Radio Shack for a soldering iron.  Bill’s amps are regarded as classic takes of Holy Grails.

Typically, these amps end up in Japan.  You can see certain dealers charging upper $6ks for these heads.  You can also see they don’t last long.

Tonally, this amp gets to the heart of what a “Wreck” does.  Turn volume of your guitar down and it cleans right up.  Phenomenal cleans that sound like THAT is what the amp was SUPPOSED to do….turn up the guitar and OVERTONES…SUSTAIN….GRIND….CRUNCH.  BUT you retain note definition…mmmm…I love it.

Amp is from a nonsmoking environment.  It is ready to go and does not appear to have any mods or damage.

Mark KANE – Dumble Style Robben Ford 100w  – BRAND NEW AUTHORIZED DEALER

Mark KANE – Dumble Style Robben Ford 100w – BRAND NEW AUTHORIZED DEALER

SOLD BUT I represent this builder and we can get you EXACTLy what you need in a D or Wreck Style amp! Mark Kane is reknowned as one the Country’s most respected guitar collectors and amp builders. Mark’s amps are custom built recreations of the most classic style Dumble & Trainwreck circuits…built one at a time by hand…point-to-point wired….tested and tuned by one of the finest set of ears since corn was discovered. I am PROUD to be the first and only dealer of these awesome amps. To me a real Dumble (which I’ve owned 2 of) has a sustain and chime (like EL84). Most recreations miss one or both by a mile. Mark’s amps NAIL the REAL D-characteristics. This 100W Black Suede Head is designed to NAIL the RF tone..and it does. Comes with a hand wired buffered effects loop too! (aka Dumbleator recreation). If you can’t get Robben’s tone out of this you have cement fingers
