    1965 Ampeg B-18-N Head (Ser# 001xxx)

    Sounds incredible and needs nothing.

    This is an early (3rd year of production) Ampeg B-18-N head in reasonable cosmetic condition and impeccable electrical condition.

    I purchased this amp in 2010 and in early 2011 the amplifier was completely gone over electronically by a professional - me;

    Eyelet board was cleaned and baked to remove moisture
    All power supply capacitors replaced
    All eyelet board mounted passive components replaced
    Grid stop resistors added at sockets
    Tube sockets re-tensioned & cleaned
    All jacks/pots cleaned
    All signal wiring shielded
    3 prong grounded AC cord installed
    Polarity switch (aka 'Deathcap') removed from power circuit
    8 ohm transformer tap connected to an isolated 1/4" speaker jack

    There are no modifications to the chassis, and the head could easily be returned to stock condition.

    Tubes are:

    6SL7: vintage Tung Sol (Made in USA), vintage Sylvania
    7199: original Ampeg branded
    7027/6L6: Russian Electro-Harmonix 6L6EH
    5AR4: vintage RCA

    I love the amp but it deserves to be played, and it doesn't fit my current situation.


    $900 shipped. Price somewhat negotiable. Trades of similar value or trades + cash will be considered.

    Things I'd be interested in -

    5 string or 4 string basses
    Tube instrument amps
    lightweight PA power amps
    high quality trumpets
    Upright bass bows
    Studio/recording equipment

    I'm also potentially open to non-musical equipment trades... my hobbies include; design/build of electronics, hunting, snowboarding, Mayan archaeology, travel.... :D

    Make an offer, I'll consider it.
