Vintage 1970s Fender 400PS KT88 Valve Bass Guitar Amplifier

Oh wow! What a beast of an amplifier! We’d never seen such a large and heavy amplifier with such an awesome output! A set of 6x JJ KT88 valves power this beast, alongside a 6L6 and several RCA pre amp valves. The transformers are beefy, and all date to 1970, and the original power cable is included in the sale. There are three speaker outputs, each at 145 watts – totalling over 400 watts of raw power!

There is a brilliant write up of this amplifier here, well worth a read – https://reverb.com/uk/news/the-most-powerful-tube-amp-of-all-time-behind-the-fender-400-ps

It is relatively untouched underneath on the circuit board, and the condition is extremely good! The tolex has very few scuffs to it, and it is slightly rusting in places, but nothing out the ordinary. Wonderful condition for it’s age.

Serial Number: 225A

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.
