Wow! Supro 1616T tube amp in Chicago area for $200 - just listed!

These little 1616T's are super rare and hard to find - they are very much in demand.  The 6x9 alnico is a perfect match for the single 6V6 power tube - this amp should sound great at full tilt in the studio - once you clean up whatever is causing the crackle and static. 

This sounds like it hasbeen in the owners family for 50 years.  And you gotta love the name of the town - Homer Glen - what a cool little find.

I have a Supro vintage tube amp model 1616T (Valco-Chicago 51) for sale. I believe it was built in '59 or '60. It's all original except that the plug was changed into a 3-prong. The output power is around 10 watts max. There are 2 input channels and a tremolo function. The tremolo still works great. The amp plays well but there is some static/crackle at higher volumes. It has a single 6" x 9" speaker. It has been in my possesion since the mid-60's and belonged to a cousin before that. Pictures attached. Cash only please and you pick up. If you're interested or would like further info please contact me. Located in Homer Glen not far from 143rd and Bell.

I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

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.
