Hammond Organ amp on CL

  1. Anyone know anything about this amp? If it's working, seems like a steal for 100, might be useful for guitar/recording bass.

    It's cool, and probably well worth a hundred bucks, but I wouldn't play bass through it.

    I think he means 6BQ5s, which are common organ and low wattage guitar amp power tubes, also known as EL84s, probably european from what I've seen in Hammonds.
    Those tone cabs are more like a power amp with speaker, not much good for guitar or bass by itself. If you like the look, it would make a great TV stand, but not much use for guitar/bass as-is, and too nice to part-out. The 5U4s are rectifiers (converting AC to DC), super common tubes, no real value in those.
