My new Vintage Series Amps!  I take vintage speaker cabinets, boxes and other things to make amazing guitar amps with great tone!  I use the Artec SDA-T amps, with the Gain Mod, and a tone control.

This particular speaker is a vintage 50's/60's intercom/PA wall speaker that has been repurposed!  It includes the original Jensen speaker that is in excellent condition.

Amp Specs:  2.5W solid state amp, 9v (6x AA battery powered) with separate gain and tone controls.  

The amp sounds wonderful, has great tone, and just a bit over overdrive at high gain on a hot pickup.   For only 2.5W, it has plenty of volume, far more than I would expect. 

It sounds good!
