I've owned this for about 7-8 years. This is a clean machine. I believe this is a custom. The Heritage Patriots were advertised as being able to cop tweed, brown, and blackface Fender tones. This one has different cosmetics than normal and stays pretty clean up the volume dial. It has a humongous output transformer - as big as a Twin Reverb. That might be why it stays so clean.

This one is also different because it has a two knob power amp section. Usually, these have two knob reverb, but this has one for Reverb and a Cut and Mood knob to tailor the power amp section.

I know Heritage built some amps in conjunction with jazz players, so this might have been one of those collaborations. Excellent pedal platform.

* Handwired by Paul C

* 1x12 - I've only seen one other 1x12 in this cab and with the gold aluminum faceplate

* Cut knob - Dark to Bright

* Mood knob - Mellow to Mean

* Mid-focus - tweed to blackface

* 2x 6L6 or EL34

* HUGE Mercury Magnetics output transformer

* External bias measurement

* Spring Reverb

* Original owner's manual (I think - need to check)

* 2/4/8 Ohm jacks

Currently equipped with a Scumback Alnico (65w I believe), 60s Baldwin preamp tubes, blackplate RCA 6L6GC power tubes.

$1450 shipped+insured/Paypal'd, 3% discount for non-fee payment

Cab looks pretty big. Room to put a 15 in it? What's the weight?

I don't think it will fit a 15. There's about 3" of space but the transformer would be very close to hitting some part of the speaker.

I believe it's 45 lbs.

I had one identical to this and used an EV12L speaker. It weighed a bit but sounded great and took pedals better than any amp Ive had since.Very tempting!

Have had many people ask about no speaker, no tubes - new price is $950 shipped/Paypal'd no speaker, no tubes

I understand not everyone wants to pay for expensive tubes and have their own extra speakers.
