brand item description

Delta Blues Tweed 1x15" Combo

Fully serviced and looking as though it has been hardly used. All in all this has been fully serviced and comes in a very nice Tweed covering. All valves test excellent in my valve tester. These amps are one of the most versatile around having both Tremolo and Reverb functions. This one comes with a Peavey foot switch and protective cover.


1995 JCM60 Series with 15" Speaker

This 1995 Marshall JTM615 combo tube amplifier in excellent condition and in perfect working order.
This fairly rare 60 watt combo features a 15” speaker, enabling massive glassy cleans and thick, crushing high gain heaven.
It looks as though it has been little used during its life and apart from a few very minimal nicks in the covering, everything, both internally and externally looks in pristine condition. I my books the tolex used to cover this amps cabinet is one of the most attractive that Marshalls used.

Serviced and with a full set of 100% good condition valves, this is ready to rock’n’roll


Matched Pair Type 1416 G12S -  20W 8 Ohm

These were taken from a fully working AC30 and are viewed as one of the many sought after vintage loud speakers of yester-year.
Both are fully working with no coil pickup.
One has its centre stick-on gold cover missing and t he other has a small hole in it. Don’t ask me why these are so, I don’t know.
Priced at a very reasonable level and I will separate if you only want one. However that will entail a 20% increase, based on ½ the BIN price shown.


2004 Burns 'The Marvin' 1964 Reissue White Signature Electric Guitar


This is one of the low serial numbers (0166 of 2004) that Burns London ‘The Marvin’ 1964 Reissue is in Shadows White finish.
This guitar is a faithful recreation of the original 1964 Burns Marvin and includes the Rez-O-Tube Tremolo with engraved Hank Marvin Signature, Burns Rez-O-Matik US Alnico Magnet Single Coils with 1964 specifications and Burns Gear-O-Matic Gearbox Truss Rod.
The body of this guitar is crafted using American Alder, and the bolt on neck crafted using Maple. This makes for a fairly lightweight feeling guitar with a resonant and bright tone. A 300mm fingerboard radius, roughly 12”, makes for a well-balanced feeling neck that suits both comfortable fretting and deep bending.
The trio of Burns Rez-O-Matik US Alnico Magnet Single Coils create a very bright and snappy tone, perfect for recreating the riffs of Marvin. This stunning guitar is a faithful recreation of an iconic guitar, and would be a fantastic addition for any collector or Marvin enthusiast.



1970's Defiant Solid-State Head.

This was one of the last iterations of the Defiant, having had the earlier version’s Standby switch and Pilot light removed for this version, which were manufactured mid 1970 – late 1972.

1.      Cabinet

a.      The cabinet was totally stripped down and re-covered with new vinyl, gold corded infills and a VOX type carrying handle

b.      The front panel was recovered in a Black VOX Diamond cloth and new logos of both VOX and Defiant were fitted along with a mixture of original and new plastic edge protectors’.

2.       Preamp Chassis

a.      A new top Control Panel was laser-cut in aluminium and along with a cleaned-to- base-metal front panel, both were screen-printed to an exact set of artwork.

b.      All the knobs (and their respective springs) are original bar-one, which is on the distortion pot. A new 5-pin 180 DIN socket was fitted and suitably wired up for the 3-functions it serves.

c.      The Reverb tray was fitted with new rubber suspensions and some of electrolytics were replaced that showed poor ESR readings.

3.      Power Chassis

a.      This was extensively examined and a number of components’ were replaced. These were:

                                                    i.     The 2500uf/50v filter and 400uf/40v electrolytic that supplies Pin 1 to the Preamp chassis.

                                                   ii.     The majority of the wire-wound resistors and associate electrolytics, all of which showed the effect of over-heating.

b.      The remaining transistors, resistors and capacitors were all checked for goodness.

c.      Finally the chassis was taken up to operating voltage and the quiescent currents were both set to a nominal value of 10mA (see image), with a setting for the output signal also being adjusted.

4.      Two areas remain at fault – The Top Boost on Normal Channel and the Distortion function of the Brilliant Channel. To that end a 2-button VOX foot switch was wired up for using with the amp. The cabling on the DIN plug is readily wired for the Distortion function also, but the wires are no connected at the other end.

I have laminated a Serial Label, which I will include with the sale, it has 24XX (the start of this model) and can be fixed to the back panel if so desired.


1960's V-Chaped Dominator All Valve Combo with Cover

This is one of the early ones that originally had a control system akin to the rare old Watkins Scout.

There are not that many who still exhibit the extremely clean blue/cream covering, although the speaker cloth has been replaced, as has the Control Panel with a fabulous original looking after-market one including control knobs.

Speakers are a pair of 16ohm Celestion’s in parallel, again from the ‘60s is my take and I guess they might have been swap-outs for the usual ELACs. Charlie was not fussed about replacing one part with another if needed. One of the speakers has had a repair done to the cone, which although appears to sound okay, if driven hard, well, anything could happen! My take would be to replace both. I do have a pair of Celestion G10R 8ohm speakers, which would fit (in series) and the only change would be the current 8ohm output transformer setting to 16ohms. If so desired the swap-out price difference would be an additional £25.

Electronically it has been gone through with every single HUNTS capacitor being replaced, together with any other dubious looking part. The multi filter cap showed excellent results on an ESR meter and shows no signs of deterioration, even after a 90-minute soak test to ensure all functionality remained stable.

The valves are all testing 100% and the compliment is as follows:

1 x EZ81 Old Mullard

2 x EL84 Old Mullard

1 x ECC83 JJ matched for the P.I.

1x ECC3 Old Mullard in Tremolo Input

1 x ECC3 Old Osram in Microphone Input

Comes with a period foot-switch that has been attached to a more modern RSA plug.

To top things off, comes with a brand new soft cushion blue cover.


1 x 12" Speaker Cabinet 80W 8 Ohm

Custom made, high quality speaker cabinet containing the famous Celestion Seventy 80 GP12-80.

Size 22.5" x 16" x 9" w x h  x d

Originally paired with a Marshall head, hence the fret cloth and tolex covering.

Excellent condition with a fully functional speaker.
