Sano 500R 2x12 tube combo in Minn MN for $375

Here is a seller offering a nice looking Sano at a good price. These are very well-built amps designed by Joe Zonfrilli that are similar in quality to a Magnatone but without the "True Vibrato" circuit. Still they have their appeal. Very loud for a 65 watt amp this should make a nice platform for a Jazz, Country, Surf, or Vintage Rock stage rig.

I am not familiar enough with these to tell you how the "stereo" channel would work but I know the tremolo is assignable to either channel 1 or 2. As usual, for more info on Sano amps consult with Larry John Mcnally's nicely researched website you can reach by clicking here: SANO AMPS - Larry John McNally.


Vintage Sano 500R12 amp - $375 (St. Paul)

Very rare ~50 watt 2x12 tube amplifier from the 70s , just serviced and ready to rock. Appears to be all original. Great warm clean tones all the way to 10--Sort of Ampeg-like. Would make a great surf amp or platform for pedals. For such a clean machine it has a very nice spongey feel to it, perhaps because of the cathode bias design.

This is about the size and weight of a Twin Reverb so if you live within a reasonable distance of St. Paul, MN we'll meet. Don't mind shipping, but it could be a bit pricey (then again, these aren't easy to find so maybe it's worth it to you.)

Call: six five one ***-****

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.
