Fender

1964 BF All Valve Bass Head

The Fender Bassman†is a legendary guitar amp known to both guitar and bass players.

This one has the AA864 circuit and was one of the first 1964 model Bassman amps having a low serial number (01418). The Power Transformer code also confirms this by its date of 606415, which deciphered is:-
606415 in a Blackface era Fender amp (1960ís), would be Schumacher (606), manufactured in 1964 (4) in the 15th week (15).

The amp has been fully serviced with the majority of electrolytics being replaced with high quality TAD ones.

In addition, and for safety reasons over originally, both the Grounding Switch (Cap of Death) and the Mains Voltage Selector have been disconnected with a safe wiring configuration in their place. Both items have been left in place but do nothing.

The mains supply is directly wired for 240VAC (yes, some parts of the UK still have the 240VAC system rather than the modern day 230VAC). The 5 other available voltage connections (117, 200, 210, 220 and 230) have been safely sealed off and the winning bidder will get the colour wiring code from those voltages if a change is required.

The valves / tubes all tested excellent and this particular Bassman has a pair of Sovtek 5881WXTs in it. Here is an interesting fact concerning this valve/tube:-
ĒThe Sovtek 5881WXT tube is a reliable beam tetrode delivering a warm, round tone that "sweetens" any vintage or modern guitar tube amp design. Built to rigid military standards, the Sovtek 5881WXT will tolerate higher voltages than most other 6L6 tubes. This tube is commonly found relabelled by Fender and Groove Tubes to GT-6L6B. Mesa Boogie relabels them STR425.Ē

At some time prior to my ownership the output Transformer blew, this has been replaced by a Hammond 1750L 4 ohm, which is the equivalent of the Fender 125A13A O.T.

The Bias voltage has been set to Fenderís -44v after a suitable period of soaking.

Everything works as it should and in addition the head comes with the attachment clamps for use on a 2x12 Fender tilting speaker cabinet.

For transportation there is also a custom made Flight Case into which the amp fits.

A lovely piece of Fender† history that will please any guitarist / bassist.

Roland

RE-101 SpaceEcho

This is the lower spec SPACE ECHO to the RE-201 the differece being this one does not have the Reverb function.

The tolex shows some minor blemishes and the odd scuff here and there, but these are really not that noticable.

All the heads are in excellent condition showing little wear and tear. All have been cleaned and degaussed.

A new tape has been fitted and the pots given a detox/lub spray.

Everything works as it should and with regular care and attention there is no reason why this should not give years of trouble free use.

Watkins Westminster Valve Tremolo Amp Combo

This is one that the studio / home / small venue guitarists favour.

It has been Serviced with all the [horrid] Hunts caps and filters replaced; hence it comes fully functional with a Tremolo effect second to none.

The valves are all MULLARDS and the circuit (which is as originally built) is based on the Dominator 20/T build.

It has in an earlier life been painted black over the original blue. This has not been changed since it has been done carefully and looks the part.

The footswitch is now a plug-in item as to the original one was missing.

Roland MKS-70 Super JX with PG-800 Programmer

The MKS-70 is an identical rackmount version of the JX-10 synthesizer. Released in 1986 it combines two individual JX-8P synth engines for an outstanding warm and analog sound which is used in many modern studios all over the world.

It comes with onboard effects like Chorus and Delay and offers a wider range of programming using the optional PG-800 Programmer, which is included in this sale.

This programmer is highly recommended for those who will be programming unique sounds since editing from the rack-face itself is cumbersome and tedious. The MKS-70 has a "chase-play" function which allows programmable delayed repeats of voices from either of its tone modules. The chorus is either off, slow or fast.

Condition of both units is near mint in every aspect.
