    This is my 26th Ampeg B15 FlipTop restoration, and it is a specimen. 1967: 055806 code. Original CTS 15" speaker, with Ampeg logo. Vintage GE power tubes and rectifier, tested strong. EXCELLENT tolex and grill-cloth. Functionally flawless after detailed service by one of the Southeast's top vintage amp techs.

    The Ampeg B15 Fliptop is the Holy Grail of classic bass amps, found in countless studios. This one will NOT disappoint. This is a classic, lifetime-keeper amp. I ship the head and cabinet separately, both VERY well packed, to ensure safe arrival.

    • TONE: Amazing, thanks to the CTS 15" and vintage tubes. Pro tip: Channel 1 is great, Channel 2 even better.
    • TUBES: Vintage GE power tubes and rectifier, 2 vintage 6SL7 preamp tubes, 1 new. All tested strong. Great tubes are key to your tone.
    • SPEAKER: The original 1966 15" CTS square magnet, 137-628, with Ampeg logo. Appears to have been reconed in 1987Warm, beefy and defined tone. This is "the" classic B15 speaker, I've tried them all. "Correct" green and black speaker wiring, original 4-prong connector.
    • TOLEX AND GRILL: The original grill-cloth is near flawless. Tolex is Excellent +.
    • CHASSIS: The chrome is clean and shiny, mirror-like, almost no tarnish. All original knobs! Original tube cage. The Ampeg schematic under the chassis is in great condition. Faceplate lettering in excellent condition. The tray is solid and clean. Shockmounts in excellent condition.
    • CABINET: Cab is very clean and solid, you could serve lunch inside this cab! Original latches work great. New gasket, providing a nice tight fit for the head (these MUST be replaced). Nice handle, relic'ed for a nice look. Original warranty card in the cab (see the pic).
    • CLEAN BILL OF HEALTH: Fully checked out by one of the Southeast's top vintage amp techs. Capacitors in fine shape, none leaking. All tubes tested strong. Cleaned all pots and jacks. 3-prong power cord.
