Vintage 1960s Carlsbro 60w EL34 CS60TC Valve Guitar Amplifier

Vintage 1960s Carlsbro 60w EL34 CS60TC Valve Guitar Amplifier

This is a Carlsbro 60w guitar amplifier, dating from 1968, with serial number 1522. The exact model is a CS60TC, with a ‘top cut’ knob for that bit extra. The transformers and valves in this are top, top quality, being used similarly in Marshall amplifiers of the same era, hence being known, rather stupidly, as the ‘poor mans plexi’! It includes a pair of original matching Mullard EL34s and what looks to be a matching set of Brimar ECC83s (two are original for certain, the third has no markings).

This one is in great condition, with only light marking to the tolex, and a few brown spots on the chassis. Above the handle are a few small holes, possibly from a logo being added in the past. There are a few components changed underneath, making it a very playable amplifier. It has had a power socket added in the past, but this has now been disconnected and an IEC placed above it. However, we have left the old one in as it would mean a large hole in the chassis otherwise. You’ll not be disappointed!

This amplifier has been serviced to a playable & safe standard, by one of our leading amp techs. To find out more about what our service includes, please check out our terms and conditions before purchasing.

The Music Locker prides itself on offering vintage and collectable pre-owned instruments and equipment (the Products).

We take all reasonable steps to ensure the equipment has been inspected by a competent person in the UK to ensure it complies with UK safety standards. This may mean it does not comply with the current standards in the country in which it will be subsequently used. It is the purchasers’ responsibility to ensure it is inspected by a competent person knowledgeable with the relevant electrical safety standards within that country, prior to connecting to any live electrical circuit.

It is the philosophy of The Music Locker to keep all items as original as possible, only changing original components when absolutely necessary. This includes valves, capacitors, transformers, potentiometers, frets, etc. This gives the buyer the option of tailoring to their exact needs, and may mean that the item 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 item in more depth upon receiving.

The Music Locker cannot accept responsibility for any costs of refurbishment to a standard different to the one advertised.
