    Late 73/early 74 SVT. It's a monster! Fresh TungSol 6550's (10 hours or so), and includes two sets of preamp tubes. The original (mostly Magnavox) tubes worked great, but I came upon a set of NOS backups that I bought and stuck in just for the heck of it. I believe there are RCA, Amperex, Sylvania, and maybe a GE or two to go along with the originals. Sounds great!! I'll include every tube I have for it.

    Ch1 sounds amazing...silent when not playing. Ch2 has a little static that I never had fixed. Probably a cap or something. I had it checked out about 10 mo ago, and all of the caps out of spec were replaced. Tech did say he didn't fix any that were still good.

    Not sure I want to sell as it is ready to rock for the next decade or two, but my gigging days may be over. Plus I bought a Jeep and need some accessories :). This beast is just sitting in my upstairs room chillin in the AC. As pictures show, it is missing some tolex on the bottom, and it is missing a foot in the front. It has one in the center

    $1725 shipped CONUS. Would love a local sale but will ship.
