Harp Commander maker, Ron Holmes, built this "Velvet Glow" amp based on old PA heads. It is cathode biased and takes 2 6V6 power tubes for 8 watts, 2 6L6 for 14 watts or 2 KT66 for 18 watts. It has a harp input and a guitar input -- separately voiced. Adjustable line out, 4 and 8 Ohm speaker outs, post-preamp stage effects loop, 6SL7 preamp. This appears to be Velvet Glow #3, and Ron told me it was the last one he'd build -- takes too much "hand time."
I'll sell with a matched pair of KT66 (and a spare matched pair) and the appropriate rectifier for those (5AR4), of course, also the preamp tubes. $650 firm.
This is a "head" -- no speakers or speaker cabinet included.

If you are SERIOUSLY INTERESTED, email me (see my profile), and I will take a few photos of amp and manual.
Be well, all.

Just bumping this up.
The amp isn't one of the popular ones you hear about -- there were only 3 made! But builder Ron Holmes has a reputation for quality and innovation in the harp community. I since bought a Skip Simmons Masco, so this one can go.
Be well, all.

Price drop to $575 which will include shipping to USA 48.
