Ampeg Gemini I tube amp in Stockton CA for $250

This seller is offering a vintage Ampeg Gemini 1 for $250. If you are in the Stockton area you might want to check it out. I believe these are about 30 watts with two independant channels and Reverb and Tremolo. The tube lineup on these Gemini's tends to vary depending on the model year. Sometimes 6V6's, sometimes 7591's and a few with 7868's. I've always loved the look of these with the chrome logo, stovetop knobs and Diamond Blue Tolex.

I once owned an Ampeg Gemini which was similar but 50 watts with only one channel. I purchased it from a seller in Woodstock NY and the legend was that it had belonged to John Sebastion and been used on some tracks on The Band's Songs from Big Pink. It was a great Surf amp and could really get that CCR-type swampy crunch and twang.

Note: I've had a few readers contact me lately reporting scams and ripoffs on CL. Be alert that whenever you send money to a stranger you are taking a risk! I do not know who these sellers are and just because I highlight a deal does not mean that I consider it to be valid or legit. - JC
