Has tremolo, great valve-driven spring reverb, and about 8 watts or so feeding into the two original 6" horseshoe Alnico-magnet speakers.

Fully serviced and ready for another forty years of pure vintage valve tone - went to Matt early 1960s Fisonic 4-channel PA amp head - How cool is this!!??

- went as soon as it returned from our tech to a new owner in Sydney 1960/61 Echoplex EP-1 tape echo - this is one of the original Echoplexes, with a very low serial number suggesting 1960 or 1961 manufacture.

Fully serviced, low mileage, a stunning example with sound to die for with its original 110volt all-valve circuitry - went to John early 1960s JMI (Vox) Domino - a very rare, very basic, very cool amp putting out only about 5 glorious single-ended watts from the single EL-84 output.

Rickenbacker's Transonic Series and Fender's first solid-state amplifiers should be incredibly similar as they were both designed by the same engineer.

Later Rickenbacker solid-state amplifiers (TR series etc.) don't have anything at all in common with Fender products of the same era...

- went to Martin 1958 Maton Mastersound 15-watt EL-84 amp - How cool is this! Sounds great too, and complete with its original white-cone MSP speaker!

Effectively an early Aussie single-channel AC-15 clone!

This uses a pair of EL-34s (and an EF-86 pre-amp) to give some really great Aussie-flavoured British tone.

We've just spent a heap on this beauty, and you have to hear it to believe it!

Want to put your guitar, vocal, accordion and bass through the one amp and speaker box?

That's the sort of use this super-rare Fisonic would have been made for back in the early 1960s in Marrickville, Sydney.

Fender in the fifties, Vox and Marshall in the sixties, to name but a few, led to Mesa Boogie, Matchless, and finally today's slew of boutique amplifiers.
