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.

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.

Mad Professor CS-40 Head !   Impossibly Rare!

Mad Professor CS-40 Head ! Impossibly Rare!

OH the Unicorn has been found!   Impossibly rare Mad Professor CS-40 Head.  LITERALLY THE SWISS ARMY KNIFE OF HEADS!   Super clean from a smoke free environment with Manual and original shipping crate.

These heads are collector coveted because you can run almost any type of tube in them easily.  The knobs are so incredibly interactive that you can almost never run out of new unique tones to dial in.  I’ve owned several and they are hauntingly great amps.  Achieve monster tones at super low volumes too.

These are out of production because they were so expensive to product and export.  Get this one and you will likely be able to sell so many other pedals and amps because you will find they are unneccessary.

Lil’ Walter Standard 50

Lil’ Walter Standard 50

WOW amp alert!  Simplicity is KING but don’t let the lack of switches fool you…this amp is SUPER interactive.  Every little turn of the knob results in changes.  Things work TOGETHER so you end up with SOOOOOOO many variations of chewy tone……mmmm….you will ditch your complex system….and opt into simple!

This head LOVES different speakers from vintage to modern.  We ran it through everything from Celestion 15s to 65w to Fanes.  WOW.  Also it was so much fun to play we put a ton of different pedals through it and this thing just eats up pedals with LOVE….think of it as a weighted blanket of amps….hugggggs you.

Smoke free former home.  Low hours.  Priced to move.  What’s not to like!  Give it a whirl and it’s a low risk item because you can always pop it back on Reverb or an internet forum and liquify it if it’s not to your liking. Why buy new when you have this clean amp from THE trusted source!

1972 Hiwatt 50w 212 – Partridge Transformers!

1972 Hiwatt 50w 212 – Partridge Transformers!

My Personal AMP!  Came here all the way from the USSR at the cost of $1100 shipping…it is HEAVY.  Original Partridge Transformers.  Looks mostly original inside but plenty of pics so that you can scour them.  The cab is solid!   The handle might be a replacement.  The speakers confuse me….both 1972 date codes….but the frames are a little different.  One has a more textured frame vs. the other.  One speaker has a date code.  They sound the same.  Hiwatt experts please educate me.  GREAT amp that is getting super hard to find.  OH…220v in case you didn’t notice.  Lastly, looks like the side handles are after-market.

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.   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
