Vintage 1960’s Selmer Treble N’ Bass 50 MKII Amp
As described on vintagehofner:
“The T’n’B 50 was probably the longest-running Selmer amplifier in production, from the early 60’s to the late 70’s, and certainly it sold very well as many are still around and in use today. The Mk II version followed the croc-skin models, and changes were largely cosmetic. Cabinet covering was changed to black vinyl, the front being covered in a very attractive white/blue on black patterned grillcloth similar to designs used by WEM and Vox at that time, with a large light-blue Selmer logo. Handle is leather with Vox-type mounting brackets, and vent grilles are no longer used as ventilation to the back is improved. The chassis was reversed so as to be positioned at the top rather than the bottom of the cab, the control panel being simply inverted 180 degrees to be top-mounted. Normal and Bass channel each have 2 inputs and controls for volume, treble and bass, and an on/off switch and pilot light are provided. On the rear of the chassis are voltage selector, 2 slo-blo fuses and 15 & 7.5 ohm speaker output sockets. Dimensions 21″ x 8.1/2″ x 8″, valve complement ECC83 (3), EL34 (2), GZ34 (1). At this stage, it would appear that 1 x ECC83 was dropped; previous versions had four.
This simple, functional and reliable amplifier occupies sonic territory somewhere between Vox and Marshall and can emulate both, probably the reason for it’s popularity. Priced at 55 gns. Oddly, the very attractive livery seems to have been used only on the T’n’B and not other Selmer models.”
We pride ourselves on the inspection, authentication, and service of each amplifier to UK standards and regulations.
Please note that it is the philosophy of The Music Locker to keep all amplifiers as original as possible, only changing original components when absolutely necessary. This includes valves, capacitors, transformers, potentiometers, etc. This gives the buyer the option of tailoring to their exact needs, and may mean that the amplifier is not operating at optimum performance levels. Therefore, your personal preference may differ, depending on your circumstances (i.e. collector or musician), and you may decide to service the amplifier in more depth upon receiving. The Music Locker cannot accept responsibility for any costs of refurbishment to a standard different to the one advertised.
Apart from the visible scuffs & tears, we struggle to find much worth mentioning other than the missing part of the face plate & discoloration to the Selmer badge. This amp has that classic unforgeable mofo!
Please have a close look at the high resolution photographs below, as these form part of our description.
In our opinion, the important parts of this amplifier are original, with a few internal components changed.
Overall, this is a very rare and collectable amplifier. Not only is this sure to increase in value year on year, but also it can be an enjoyed investment.
You?re more than welcome to come along and have a play on this, coupled with one of our vintage guitars!
