Flot-a-tone tube combo amp in Milwaukee WI for $350

This could be a Flot-a-tone 1335R. It has all he markings of one.

Flot-a-tones are highly sought and desireable as a result of people like Billly Gibbons, Ry Cooder and the aformentioned GE Smith. These amps don't sell for the prices of Vintage Fenders or Marshalls and they won't gain that much value over time but they are well regarded - and they most definitely sound great. There are dozens of American made amps from this period (1940 - 1959) that sound great but few have the mystique of a Flot.


This is an extremely rare color Flotatone Electric Guitar or Harp Tube Type Amplifier usung 6L6 output tubes. This amplifier works great but controls are scratchy. Speaker sound is loud and clear with no distortion but I have no way of knowing if original. Still wearing the original colors of green and brown, how cool is that color combination. Carry strap does not look original. Flots are the amps that GE Smith uses for sessions in NYC, because they have great tone and are very portable. These are known for there Killer harp tone. Price is $350. Email or call *********. Best time to call is Noon- 5PM M-F or any time on weekends. If I cannot answer please leave a message and phone number and I will get back to you within 1 hour. Thank You.

  1. They were made here in Milwaukee so we have them come up pretty regularly. Magnatones too, thanks to Lo Duca Bros.


I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - JC


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.
