1967 Ampeg B15-NF. Serial number: 066218. The B15NF is a single baffled 30W amp with a 15" speaker. It's all original and in exceptional condition. The Black tolex has only a couple tiny scuffs. The grill cloth is clean with no tears. The latches work as they should with no issues. Most importantly of all the sound is fantastic. This amp wont disappoint in terms of sound or looks. The amp comes supplied with a step down transformer.

The B15 was introduced in 1960. Much like all of Ampeg’s amps, the B-15 underwent constant change, and the B-15 was replaced by the B-15N in 1961. In 1962, Ampeg updated the B-15N with a solid-state rectifier called the B-15NB and introduced their famous “blue check” vinyl covering to their entire amp line. Ampeg went back to a tube rectifier and changed to a printed circuit board in 1964 (B-15NC). This model lasted until mid 1965, when they introduced the B-15NF with fixed bias tubes and a single-baffle cabinet. The Blue checked tolex remained a feature until mid 67, at this point Black tolex was introduced with a Silver trim around the front edge of the cab. Fully serviced with a 3 month warranty. Don't miss out on getting that cool Motown sound.

This amp has been fully serviced by my amp technician and comes with a 3 month warranty. During the service my tech changed the power chord from a two pin to a three pin and removed the earthing Cap which is often referred to as the death cap to make it safe. The earth wire is then soldered to the chassis. He also noted that 2 electrolyte caps have been changes and the speaker socket has been changed from a 4 pin to a jack socket. One tube has been changed. Everything else is original.
