Magnatone 440 Tube amp in Philly for $375



I am always tracking Magantones for sale around the country - if I'd have seen thisone for sale I'd have probably bought it while I was back in Philly for the Christmas Holiday (I drove past Plymouth Meeting at least 6 times while I was there). This single channel version has the True Vibrato circuit - not pristine for a collector but a heck of a vintage amp to add to your studio or home arsenal.

1963 Magnatone Custom 440 with a JBL K120 sounds great. vibrato works cool amp. $375 The tubes have all been replaced with either new or NOS as the tubes for these amps were what they were/are. amp was gone over by a local magnatone specialist. The amp does not have the original back plate. The tech made the one that's there now. The 2 Volume knobs are not original. if i don't use it for a while i get a little tube socket noise until the amp warms up. put the jbl in as the original speaker was gone. I love this amp. had a magnatone when i was a kid in the 60's and you always remember the vibrato, but kid's are still in college. i don't ship
