Sano 500R-12 tube combo amp in Luoisville KY for $300

This is a terrific deal on a little known but highly desireable 50 watt 2x12 tube amplifier with Reverb and Tremolo - the Sano 500R-12. These were high level professional amps of their day similar to the Magnatone line and they are finely crafted and built to last. Note, forget about shipping - this will be a heavy amp - luckily it is on wheels.

This should make a great JAZZ or Country guitar amplifier. Stays clean all the way up and down the volume scale but has beautiful bell like tonal characteristics. What a nice amp.

For sale is a 1960's Sano all tube 2x12 combo guitar amplifier. The Model number is 500R-12 and the Serial number is 500824. Sano amps were made right down the street from the Ampeg factory and have a great character all their own. I had a grounded plug put in and a few caps have been replaced/updated. The spring reverb and tremolo are in perfect working order and sound fantastic. This amp has been great for recording (stays clean at higher volumes and doesn't break up as much as other smaller amps... very surfy) and doesn't have any problems with it other than the usual 60's cosmetic wear...all the electronics are sound. And $300 for an all-tube, vintage 60's amp is a great deal. I just need to pay some bills and am willing to take a bit of a hit on it. Please contact me if you are interested and/or would like more information. I will be happy to oblige.
