1964 Univox U-45 tube amp at Jersey Shore for $150

This seller is offering what appears to be a Univox U-45B that he says is in good working condition but he is selling it without any tubes.  This amp model uses 6BM8 power tubes as well as a 6X4 rectifier and a 12AX7 in the preamp section.  The U-45B has three knobs, Volume, Tone, and Tremolo.  The output is often something of a debate due to the less common power tubes and the way the circuit is designed but it is somewhere in the 10 watt - 18 watt range. You can buy new 6BM8 tubes for about $15 each.

Don't conufuse this amp with the U-55R or the U-65R.  They are all different circuits thought they look somewhat similar. This one certainly looks to be in good cosmetic condition.

For a true collector, hobbyist, or old school rocker!! This amp is a gem!! It was made in the USA in 1964 by the Univox Company. It's all tube, 20 watts. It has a 12"Jensen speaker in it. There arent any tubes in it right now. I used the amp last spring in a recording session and it worked great. I never did have the foot switch for it, but they are available. The tubes are easy to get as well... Check it out, you will find this price is the LOWEST ANYWHERE!! Call Matt to come check it out.
