1938 Zenith radio tube guitar amp

These old Zenith radios are some of our favorites. That big rear illuminated black dial is just too cool. This amp sounds as old as it looks. Great for some nasty blues or and kind of old time music.

SKYLINER '55 - 40'S SUITCASE TUBE GUITAR AMP

This amp is a recreation of a 1955 Harvard 5F10 circuit. It is surprisingly loud and seems to have quite a bit more clean headroom than the 5E3 Deluxe. Seems like it would be a good choice for a jazz player looking for vintage tone.  Don't get me wrong, when this thing starts to break up, it's awesome. It's got that classic tweed breakup that guitar players love so much.

*Clips recorded with an AT4033 directly into ProTools. Guitar used was a Gibson ES335. Reverb was added to clips in ProTools. 

1950's GE TV Tube Guitar Amp

This is a very cool little amp. When we first picked up this TV, it had major water damage. Luckily the damage was only to the finish and not the veneer itself. The heart of this amp is a copy of a 1958 Tweed Princeton. It sounds great with either harmonica or guitar!

Guitar used was a Gibson ES-335 recorded direct into ProTools. The direct signal was "reamped" from ProTools back into the amp to achieve various gain settings. The "reamped" signal was then retracked back into ProTools. No signal processing was done on any of the audio tracks.
