1964 Ampeg ReverbRocket in Matoon Il (Indiana?) for $425

This seller is offering a 1964 Ampeg Reverbrocket (I believe they were once called "Reverb-o-Rockets") and though I am not sure if Matoon-Charleston is in Illinois or Indiana it is somewhere in that part of the country.

These are pretty darn nice amps - especially when you can find them in mostly original condition.   The reverb is different than a Fender but it is still very useful


Ampeg Reverberocket R-12-R-B 1964 - $425 (Mattoon)

FS: 1964 Ampeg Reverberocket includes original Jensen speaker, original footswitch. Fully functional sounds great. New leather carrying handle. Recently capped and professionally gone through. All of the tubes are Ampeg labeled vintage except on 6sl7 tube which is GE. The tolex has some wear but no bad blemishes. There is a little tarnish on the control panel but nothing excessive. This amp with a slightly more efficient speaker would work in a band. Very touch sensative.Barks like a Tweed Deluxe but Can also be smooth and clean. this is a perfect players amp. Great Ampeg Reverb and Tremolo.

$425 for this great vintage tube amp that works and has been maintained and is ready to work for the next 20 years.

I am selling to get some $ to buy my 11 yr old daughter some drum equipment for her birthday.

I will respond to any inquiries with a phone number and I will get back to you ASAP.


  1. JC:

    These are incredible amps, definitely one of the best out there.
    I played in a band where all three of us played through a 1962 (each one of us through one of the three inputs).
    It is titled Reverberocket (not Reverborocket).
    I bought this amp on a recommendation from David'O Pahoa from the band The Plimsouls (Million Miles Away) and have never regretted it.

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.
