Danelectro Cadet in Long Beach for $120

This is about the perfect price for this little 5 watt 50C5 tube amp. if you've never had one of these i recommend them highly for the bedroom or the studio - just watch out for getting shocked (no power transformer). But they can sound very sweet.

Here's a cool & unusual small guitar amp with its own sound unlike anything else. Made in about 1964 with a 6" speaker and 3 tubes (35W4, 50C5 & 12AU6). Doesn't sound like a Fender, Vox, Marshall, Orange, Mesa or any other well-known brand. It does sound gritty, tubey and very cool. Nice clean tones, and overdrives very well at medium-low volume, perfect for home practice & recording. About 3-5 watts output, with 2 inputs, volume & tone controls. Put a pedal in front and it screams without making your ears bleed. All the electrolytic caps have been replaced and I've added an isolation transformer & polarized plug. I've also made it so you can swap the speaker for an 8" if desired. It's in very good condition for its age, with the original grill "cloth" which is more like a sheet of tightly woven rattan with a diamond texture. It's pretty quiet, with no unusual hum or crackle. If you're looking for something different, or just a good-sounding tube amp for home, recording or even your kid, check it out, you won't be disappointed!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
