    Really nice example of a Reverberocket R-12-RA

    Very clean amp and properly maintenance and running great. When I bought the amp it looked untouched and I had Milwaukee's best tech, John Blick get it all running to spec. So a few caps/resists replaced and a new cord.

    Has the original Jensen P12R, which I boxed up for safe keeping. I had been running a Celestion Creamback in it but I have put the Jensen back in.

    Mostly original tubes I believe...all vintage tubes. Sale includes two extra vintage pre-amp tubes and one power tube.
    [6SL7] - [6SL7] - [6SL7] - [6SL7] - 7591] - [7591] - [5Y3]

    Has the original foot switch for the echo and tremolo, both sound amazing.

    Nice chrome and the lettering is really nice. Tolex all around is very good. A few very small loose corners but nothing missing and even the bottom is very clean. Not even any rust on the screws at the bottom of the back panel which is not usually the case with these. Grill cloth is nice with only a small tear on the grill towards the bottom right. Has the original handle and logo. Full schematic on the back panel (inside)

    All in all just a fantastic example this classic Ampeg with warm tones many describe as similar to the Fender 5E3 Deluxe. The amp sounds great all around and breaks up pretty early to give up the goods at a reasonable volume.

    $800 pp and shipped in the CONUS. No Trades Please. And I am firm on the price.

    I am ignorant. I don't see a reverb tank...is there a reverb tank? Where does the echo effect come from? I am so confused. Not just by this amp, but by life in general. Ugh.
