A raunchy little beast- simple controls. Turn it up and get your ZZ Top on through the 8" Celestion driver. A fantastic recording amp- dirty!
Marshall Dynamic Bass System combo
Great 250w bass combo- built-in compressor and great EQ possibilities. Very protable considering how loud it is- pumps out a decent amount of power for live use! Casters for ease of movement, DI out also.. 1x15 speaker and tweeter. Great mid-level gigging amp.

Incredibly liberating home-amp from Boss. Wireless transmitter included, and a variety of fab effects and amp models, as well as headphone-input and bluetooth speaker capability. And when you fancy a busk- it runs on batteries! OG box and paperwork included.

Fender Bassbreaker 45
In unused as-new condition with cover. 45 watts, EL84 power valves.
This amplifier was designed with a modified '59 Bassman circuit. By changing out default valves for EL34 tubes and upping the gain just slightly. These small tweaks gave the amp the power it needs to handle almost any blues or rock style.
The sound could almost be described as British as a lot of the rock amp makers from Britain did similar mods to Fender amps back in the 50's and 60's. This means it has a more aggressive and sharper midrange that many would not expect to hear out of a Fender amplifier.
Even with just one channel this amp can do a lot. With 3 different inputs (normal, bright and both for extra gain) separate volume controls, variable wattage output as well as a three band EQ and master presence control you have a lot of options.
One of the more interesting controls on this amp is the variable wattage output which almost acts as your volume control. The volume controls more like a traditional gain control but they do also make a significant difference to the output of the amp.
From 1w to 45w you can dial in your tone anywhere from the bedroom to a large stage or even the studio without missing out on that stunning power amp tube saturation that everybody is after.

Blackstar Artist 10 AE
The Artist 10 AE deploys a 6L6 output valve and an ECC83 in the preamp stage to give this amp a characteristically bright clean sound and a hot lead tone. The lead sounds are enhanced by a built-in overdrive circuit inspired by the Blackstar HT-Drive pedal which will take you from dynamic crunch to singing, smooth legato. In as-new condition.

Supro Tremoverb 1622RT Combo
The 1622RT Tremo-Verb is a feature-rich update to the coveted late-60’s Supro 1 x 10 combo platform. This compact, Class-A, 6973-powered bruiser pushes a LOUD 25 watts through a custom-made 10” speaker to capture the old-school Supro magic in an amp you can easily haul around to gigs. Tremo-Verb is, without a doubt, pound-for-pound the most potent tube amp in the Supro line.
The Tremo-Verb’s feature set, blue rhino hide tolex and compact physical dimensions are drawn from the original combo of the mid 60s, with its power plant borrowed from its larger brother, the 1624T Dual-Tone. This modern incarnation of the Supro Tremo-Verb has been enhanced with enough Class-A power to gig out alongside a pounding drummer and bassist.
Following traditional Supro fashion, the new Tremo-Verb’s power-tube tremolo comes after the reverb pan, lending an ethereal shake and wobble to the enveloping wash of tube-driven spring reverb. This amp has ample headroom to use with pedals, maintaining exceptional clarity and sparkle even above 12-o’clock on the volume knob as the amp rolls over into glorious all-tube overdrive.
NEW £1099 (one left)

In excellent condition with footswitch, this one is a prototype built for Europe. 4 EL34 power valves and three channels with boost on each channel, switcheable from 100 watts to 50, 25 and 12 watts. Ex Peter Gabriel and has been cared for very well. This amp will do anything at any volume!
Supro Black Magick Head and Cab
One of the nicest gig-worthy rigs we've had in the shop, 25 watts, two channels, channel linking options, tremolo. The Black Magick is the recreation of the famed Supro used by Jimmy Page on the early Led Zep albums. The sound is pure classic rock and blues, touch sensitive and an open airey tone that compresses when you turn it up. The cab houses a Supro 12" speaker rated at 8 ohms, run two and its an unbeatable tone.
