Knox 5 watt tube combo amp in Fresno for $65

Update 6/29/11: The seller responded to my email and told me this amp has 4 knobs w/ Vol, Tone, Speed and Strength. It is mostly likely a 5 watt amp similar to a Harmony H303A with the following tube lineup - 12av6, 12au6 and a 50c5.

**********************************

These Knox amps are extremely basic but are SWEET for home studio work.

The tiny input and output transformers limit the volume on these but you can get some nice tone especially if you replace the way cheap ceramic speaker with a more efficient alnico.

People brag about their "Point to Point" amps today but these are REAL hand soldered PTP. There isn't even an eyelet board.

No pic on the CL listing but they sort of look like the Alamo/Lafayette/Multivox amps of the same period.

I have a Vintage Knox tube amp, it's made in the Usa and is in rather good condition. It has some issues with it's tremolo system. It has a built-in tremolo effect which is very Fender-ish. It sounds great, it has those vintage tones that everyone loves! It's pretty light for a tube amp making it very portable. I hope this will sell fast, I've priced it very low. Call/Text (559)******* , or feel free to e-mail. Thanks for your time and consideration.
