    67 GRETSCH 6152
    $700 includes PayPal & shipping CONUS only
    Clean & recently serviced

    Here’s a recently serviced fifty-year-old Gretsch 6152 Compact Tremolo-Reverb 1x12 tube combo in great condition. These amps were built for Gretsch by Valco/Supro from a point-to-point single-ended Class A circuit. Unlike other 5-watt amps of the day, this amp has features that are normally reserved for larger amps like a 12” speaker, spring reverb, an all-tube tremolo, and a tube rectifier. Class A loud enough for a moderate drummer, or for rehearsal, or the studio; just turn it up and grind away, pedals are optional. This one is cleaned up and recently serviced to be fully functional and sounds awesome. Though loud enough, you won’t need to anger the neighbors as much to get the goods out of the tubes.


    -Power Output: approximately 5 Watts
    -Tubes: 6V6, 5Y3, 4-12AX7 [a mix of old & new production tubes]

    I have a '67 Supro with a similar configuration. 1x12 Jensen ceramic, reverb, tremolo. I can't imagine they would sound much different. $700 is a great price for a vintage amp in this shape. Mine sounds awesome and its a tone that's hard to come by.

    Here's a video that does a nice job of demo'ing what these sound like.

    If I had the $$ available, I would be all over this! It would be so cool to pair this with my '62 Tenny.
