Magnatone Model 111 tube combo amp in Milwaukee area for $150

This is a neat little Student amp from Magnatone and it is in beauuuuutiful condition. These 50C5 power tubes are not loud but with the 12AX7 it should sound pretty darn nice. This is a "widowmaker" so careful how you plug it in but you shoud know that already. I love these little vintage amps for the studio.

Very Clean - clearly it was a closet queen! Leather handle still strong and intact. Tolex is in great shape with only a couple of small missing spots. Grill cloth is perfect.

I believe I am the second owner of this little amplifier after aquiring it 15 years ago. It was recently gone through by a great local tech and capacitors replaced as is normal for an amp this age.

Less than 5 watts. No hums or buzzing.

It's only issue is the Jensen Special Design 8" speaker would need to be reconed, which would run about $60. There is a tear in the speaker from the power corded being stored in the back. The amp works perfectly otherwise, and looks great!

Here's a link with a bit of history - I gleaned that this is a 1961, but the speaker frame serial number indicates 1959.

$150 or best offer. Cash only. Local pick up only.

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.
