Vintage 1970’s Matamp Head SL100 Amp
Matamp founder, Mat Mathias, started the company RadioCraft in early 1945. What started as an interest ultimately developed into a fully-fledged business building amplifiers for the burgeoning music scene in the early sixties.
This SL100 is one of the rarest examples of Matamp we’ve ever seen!
Serial Number: #474 (Very Low Serial)
Voltage: 110, 118, 220, 240
Ohm: 3.75, 7.5, 15
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.
This head is in brilliant condition. An absolute beauty! We struggle to find anything worth mentioning. However, please bear in mind that these are over 40 years old so will not be in the exact condition it left the factory.
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!
