The coolest looking amps. Ever.

Thanks everyone. The one on the right is supposed to be a ‘59. I absolutely loved it when I played it, but it would drift in and out of sonic nirvana while hissing and sputtering. I could smell it getting hot. So.... off to my tech it went and it’s not really come close to its former glory.

The “new“ one is listed as a ’61 and appears identical down to the output transformer being mounted to the Rola speaker basket.

I’ve not yet had time to a/b them, but I’m hoping it has some of that attitude it’s older brother once had.

Does anyone know what voltage these were designed to run on?

Scientific testing reveals that smiles are generated almost equally between the two. The ‘61 is a touch brighter perhaps.

Both break up nicely digging in with the G arrows pointed at noon.

Filtertron’s sound pretty good.

science is fun

"Double the pleasure, double the fun..." Nice!
