Victoria Reverberato

Victoria Reverberato

Victoria Reverberato in Excelent Plus Nonsmoking Home Use Condition.  I’ve had the originals…I’ve had everything under the sun pass through my collection and store.  The Victoria is THE one to get.  You can go from a touch to ‘a lotta verb baby’.  Really fits in perfectly with your amp’s tone and doens’t fight it.  Sounds like part of the amp.  REALLY well designed and hand-created/wired.

This comes ONLY WITH WHAT YOU SEE HERE>  No repairs or issues.  Works as it should.  Grab it and save hundreds off a new one that sat in some store and got used by every guy with dirty fingers and stinky riffs…LOL

Victoria 50212 Low Powered Tweed Twin

Victoria 50212 Low Powered Tweed Twin

Victoria Low Powered Tweed Twin.  Excellent nonsmoking condition.  Just a small scuff or two shown.  Looks near new and smells it too.  These amps are simply amazing.  They get SOOOOO close to the originals.  I have a genuine ’58 Tween Twin (high power) and I have to say it is really hard to tell the difference between this and the vintage amp.   Honestly if you tossed in NOS tubes and old speakers my guess is this might even sound better.

Save a good amount of cash vs. a new one.  Tubes have very little life on them and are the originals.  No repairs.  No issues.  No mods.  No stories.

Just a great amp at a discount.  See my feedback.  I sell clean gear at great prices.  I am a store not some fly-by-night who is looking to punt his troubles to you.

Trainwreck Liverpool 18w – NOS Tubes & Upgrade Cab

Trainwreck Liverpool 18w – NOS Tubes & Upgrade Cab

GENUINE Trainwreck JM Creation.  This handwired head is a special edition LOW WATTAGE Liverpool that puts out a very usable 18w.  It features builder selected NOS Tubes and a custom Exotic Wood Cab.   1-Owner, nonsmoking and works perfectly.

This Wreck is NOT a clone.  IT is a genuine Trainwreck product.  There is something about a genuine Trainwreck that clones/replica/recreations can’t touch.  They have note bloom like nothing you have ever experienced.  They clean up with a simple rolldown of your guitar’s volume knob.  This LOVES Single Coils & Hums.  It is responsive to new and old speakers.

This EL84 version, the Liverpool, walks the line between a EL34 Wreck and the chimier EL84 Rocket.  This has all the girth and spit with nice chime when you dial back the guitar volume.  The EL34 has a very thick clean tone and less top end when overdriven.  This is the PERFECT balance.

Toss out what you thought you knew about amps….a Trainwreck is THE standard for a reason.

Friedman PHIL X – 100w Sig Head

Friedman PHIL X – 100w Sig Head

FRIEDMAN Phil X 100w Signature Head.  In Excellent Nonsmoking Condition.  Comes with footswitch AND YES IT COMES WITH THE POWER CORD.

Fantastic clean condition. I can find one or two tiny little things but it looks and smells like something you would bring home from the store.  One owner.  Nice thing about MY store is it’s internet only….so it doesn’t sit here for everybody to try.

I have to say this is THE most flexible head I’ve played.  You can literally dial in vintage to modern.  I A/B/C/D’d it vs everything from my ’67 Marshall through my Bogner Twin Jet.  Not as brutal and modern as the Bogner….BUT…it virtually nails the old Marshall through Silver Jubilee and more.  I freaking love this.  It plays so well with vintage cabs like my ’68 Marshall Cab w old Celestions.  It also LOVED my Diezel front-load cab with modern Celestions.  2-12 or 4-12 no worries.

New these are a lot more.  Grab one with a tiny bit of touching for a LOT of dead Presidents less.

Welagen “Trainwreck” EL34 w Hybrid NOS Transformer/Cap Option & Master Vol

Welagen “Trainwreck” EL34 w Hybrid NOS Transformer/Cap Option & Master Vol

Welagen “Trainwreck” Style EL34 head in excellent nonsmoking condition.  This head has the ‘Hybrid” build option including NOS Spec Ken Fischer Transformers and NOS Caps (I believe).  Not 100% on everything that the Hybrid option entails but if you are I encourage you to reach out to the builder with questions.

I have owned real Wrecks and can tell you this amp captures THE DNA of what a Wreck does…blooming full notes….organic…and cleaning up extremely well with the volume of your guitar.  I find this head can be dialed in for a little more modern tone if you care to achieve that.  Also loves different speaker cabs and speakers.   You can really fine tune the tone by simply messing with things you already own.

OH THIS ONE HAS A MASTER VOLUME ON THE BACK

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

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.
