Fender

Champ 12 All Valve Red Knob Model

Lovely condition.

This has been thoroughly serviced without any problems being found.

All the valves test perfectly okay.

It has an inbuilt analog reverb and comes with its original Fender Custom 12 inch Speaker.

A foot switch controls the Channel selection (Clean & Distort) and is totally original.

Every single electrolytic has been replaced in this amp making it viable for at least another 30-years, apart from valve replacement of course.

Its 12 Watts doesn't sound much, but crank it up and it will blow your hat off particularly on the Distortion Channel.

Like so many old Fender amps, this is high up in the rankings and remains a popular choice for guitarist and collector alike.

This one has had the TORRES modification, explained as follows:

The kit gives the amp a ton more overdrive, tone and guts. It makes the amp really come alive and scream!

The clean sound is also greatly improved, richer and fuller, more natural sounding.

1989 The Twin Red Knob Series - All Valve Amp Head in Cream

This amp was touted as having "more bells and whistles than a luxury sedan." These features included channel switching, multiple tone knobs, multiple pull-boosts, gain, presence, channel assignable reverb, external bias adjustment, a level-adjustable effects loop, a "power-amp-thru" jack for driving slave amps, a high/low power output selector, an impedance selector and more.

This is the sixth one that I have refitted into a Head. Everytime I get one fired up I am in awe of their power and fullness of sound. Even with the power switch set to 25W the sound can be quite deafening; but there is always the option to pull two of the output valves - nice one Fender!

These are believed to be one of the loudest 100W amps and I am not going to disagree with that.

This one started life as a combo, which has now been carefully modified to a head configuration and recovered in a very pleasing Cream tolex.

The amp in itself is working just great and has a new complete set of JJ valves. The re-valve alone cost over £150, which makes this amp somewhat of a bargain price.

Both Bias and Balance have been adjusted to Fender's requirements.

Consider the Channel Switching for one moment - When in Parallel mode ALL knobs across the front are active, thus allowing literally any sound to be set up from this awesome amp.

Ironically during these years (1987 - 1993) The Twin's head version was the Dual Showman - They were literally identical apart from the naming. So just to be that special bit extra, having a "The Twin" amp in head configuration not only saves the backache of hauling a behemoth of a combo about, but certainly creates a talking point when seen on stage.

So, what else is there to say in closing:

- Be one of the few to own a fabulous Twin Head.

- The foot switch for Channel Changing and Reverb On/Off is included.

- All set-up and ready to go.

- Speaker impedance setting should cover all eventualities and caters for 4, 8 and 16 ohm

- Power High / Low allows 100w / 25w output settings.

Laney

GC-30V / VC-30 Valve Combo Amp 1 x 12

1990’s Laney GC-30V / VC-30 Valve Reverb Guitar Combo Amp 1 x 12.

This is one of the earlier GC-30V Laney’s that were built using the newer valve technology of the VC-30 rather than pure Solid-State and what an amp this has turned out to be.
It sports 4 x EL84 output valves and 3 ECC83 Preamp Valves. They all tested okay in a valve tester.
The loudspeaker is a classic from the past being an H-H 12” capable of handling 50Watts at 8 Ohms.
Fully serviced with all 8 control panel potentiometers and 2 rocker switches (Channel Switching and Normal/Bright) being replaced with brand new ones.
Control Panel Functions include:

  • 2-Channels: Clean and Drive
  • High and Low Input Sockets
  • Normal / Bright Switching
  • Channel Switching
  • Tone Controls for Treble, Middle and Bass
  • Reverb (Analogue)
  • Effects Level Mixing

Rear Panel Functions include:

  • Optional Dual Foot Switch for Reverb and Channel switching
  • Effects Loop Send / Return
  • Internal / External Switch for loudspeaker output.

This amp is definitely one to have in your collection.

Sound City

50W Plus Mark 4 Valve Head

This is an early one from its serial number 1811 and has been through a thorough full maintenance and service, thus ensuring an amp that is ready to go.
These amps have an Active Tone function, which means the Volume controls on their own will not produce any output unless the Tone controls are turned up to whatever desired setting of Bass, Middle and Treble is required.
There is a switch on the back for Sensitivity – This will select either a normal or gain output enhancement to the exiting Normal and Brilliant Channels having 2 x Input Sockets per Channel.
The 5 Diodes, which make up the Bridge Rectifier (4 off) and Bias have all been replaced.
Internally the 3 Trim Pots (2 x Bias + 1 x Sensitivity) have all be replaced along with any suspect component.
All filter and electrolytic capacitors have been replaced and a full complement of new JJ preamp valves (ECC83s) along with a balanced triode Phase Invertor valve (ECC81) has been fitted.
The output valves, which, once upon a time were a balanced pair of EL34s, tested A-Ok on a tester and remain in place with their Bias’ both being set to a mid 35mA having a Plate Voltage of 440VDC.
For purely safety reasons the mains voltage selector wires have all been tied back apart from the 245VAC for use in the UK.
The cabinet is in excellent condition and to top it all, it still has it original plastic protective cover – these just DON’T exist anymore!!!
Definitely a classic amp that is getting rarer by the month.

Fully serviced with a compliment of Mullard Valves (1 x EZ81 - 2 x EL84 - 3 x 12AX7)

In stunning condition and with a new fret cloth due to the original being non-existant.
