    1965 Ampeg B-15N
    Original speaker, blue tolex covering and dolly. I've had this amp since 1974 and here is what I've had done to it:

    1999: Replaced missing "Ampeg" Lucite logo, light bulb that lights the logo, broken blue leather handle and retubed it with Ruby matched 6L6GC power tubes and Sovtek 6SL7 preamp tubes. All the original parts and tubes (Ampeg power and preamp tubes) are included except missing Lucite logo.

    August 2006: Sent amp head to Jess Oliver (designer of the Ampeg B-15 and SVT amps) for repair and conditioning. He did a cleaning and full bench check, replaced a filter, put a 3 prong grounded power cable on it and replaced the speaker cable connector. All original parts included.

    December 2006: replaced the original power transformer that had gone bad. Original power transformer included.

    Had a separate adapter speaker cord made with the 4 pin connector on one end and ¼ inch jack on the other so that the amp could be used with other speaker cabinets. Included.

    It has one non-original knob that has been there for the 43 years that I’ve had this amp.

    Other than what is listed everything to my knowledge is original.

    Price does not include shipping. I'm in southern Maine and would meet serious buyers in the New England area. Will ship but the shipping is on the buyer.
