Carlsbro 50 Watt 2x12 all tube Combo amp in Los Angeles for $200

Carlsbro amps are pretty much unknown here in the United States - they are a British company that was never really distributed here as far as I know (like Burns and Selmer). Their most popular amps are the Top 50 and Top 100 - both all tube Heads similar in many ways to a Marshall Plexi.

This 50 watt Combo looks like the same basic circuit as the Top 50. It has a pair of original British made Celestion Vintage 30's - that alone is worth the asking price - then consider that this is a hand-wired vintage EL34 combo. Wow!

Ah yeah - if those are the original tubes they would all be Mullards - that's what Carlsbro used in all thier amps.

So if you need an amp, you might want to consider this one.

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.
