I paid $500 for mine last year, but I have more into it once I did all the work. Since there aren't many around and for sale at any given time, it's not easy to pin down a set price. I saw one on ebay last year that a dealer was trying to sell for $800 but it didn't sell at that price point...
Prices will vary according to location, but I would say without the NOS tubes it could be between $200 - $300 (most likely leaning towards the lower end). The Sprague Atoms have gone way up in price from when I started doing this back in the 90s, but the other caps and parts don't really amount...
A story behind this. Quite a few years ago, I got a call from "Randall Smith." He had a piano that needed tuning and I do that on the side. I go over to his house and we start talking. I told him, "It's funny, but I tune pianos but can't play a lick on one. I'm a guitar player." He...
Just thought I'd chime in on this thread. After looking around for a long time, I finally found a 2x10 version and bought it. It was in pretty good shape when it arrived, but since I'm a tech I decided to do a complete service and checkup. I replaced all the electrolytic caps with Sprague...
The motor runs constantly, either slow or fast.
The doppler effect is more pronounced in the midrange, which is why the crossover sends the mids to the Leslie while keeping the lows/highs coming out of the amp's speaker.
Yes, a '65 Twin Reverb loaded with Altec 417C speakers. It was one of Jackson Browne and David Lindley's road amps and it's beat to death, but it's the best-sounding BF Fender amp I've ever heard and I've been playing since 1963. I paid $800 for it.
So good info here:
Altec 417 8H. Beautiful, well-rounded speakers that fit a TR perfectly. I have a pair in my '65 and they ain't ever coming out. Beware, though, they're going to make a heavy amp even heavier.
That is a Trainwreck "Dirty Little Monster" that I built using a schematic that was supplied by Ken himself.
No, I haven't had a Bogen. Early on, I became partial to Webster Electric PA heads and they have been my basic building platform ever since. I do have one Newcomb, though, which is...
My wife and I went through the same thing a few years ago so we decided to get our hearing checked. Well, after the test, which showed our hearing was fine, we determined that the root cause was due to the curious thing about couples over a period of time; that is, we we're kind of tuning each...
Tommy was an AMAZING player and I thoroughly enjoyed his Guitar Player columns on his studio work.
After many years of searching for a Brown Super that I could pick up locally, I finally found one a couple of years ago. It's become my #1 amp because it's versatile, has two very useable...
I gig with a '62 Super sitting on top of a Leslie 16 and use a Tweed Deluxe head, which sits on top of the Super, for OD tones. I made the head and an Aiken head splitter so I just use a foot switch to toggle between the two amps while using the speakers in the Super's cabinet. Works great and...
