Its called a "Mill Hill" Summer, less than 25 were made I'm told, any idea's?
Me want Summer! I LOVE those Mill Hill amps!! I heard one years ago as Jonathan was an exibitor at the Dallas Guitar Show. I could her singing over the amazing noise level. I darted around until I found a crowd of people standing around in front of his booth, mouths agape. Better still, he was set-up DIRECTLY across from Gerald Weber! HA! THOSE AMPS KILL!!
Wanna sell it to me???
They were expensive new...a few K if I remember right.......anyone??
I've had a couple Mill Hill pedals, but I didn't realize they made an amp. What's it got under the hood?
I can't see your photo. Is this it?
Yeah, that's it. It sports a custom made 8 inch Weber that sounds fantastic. The thing is unbelievably built. Solid copper chassis, Hammond trannys, a pure .999 solid silver signal path, and a solid chesapeake walnut cabinet. It uses a 12 volt heater, which sounds really good and you can find scads of NOS RCA tubes for it on the cheap. All the components are military grade. Super quiet amp, made for the studio. Another thing that's really nice is that it can easily be converted to a 6 volt heater from the 12 it uses now, the Hammond is built for that. Thanks for any info...
Here is a pic of the hand sewn hemp/fleece cover
I remember when those came out. They had 1 amp that was 50 grand!!!! Insanely expensive to make, and buy. That is why they were only around for a few years.
That is just beautiful!
Just found this
Went for $625.00 I would have guessed double that.

1 output power tube: a sweet Pentode 12V6 run in Class A
