1963 Ampeg B15N in excellent condition. Serial number: 303389 ( denoting march 1963) . Ideal for low volume studio work. These early models did not have the serial on the back of the amp Chassis, instead the serial number was on a small label glued to the inside of the cabinet. Also this B15 has a hand wired circuit board.

Most of the tolex is clean with only a few bumps and scrapes. The grill cloth and metalwork are also in very good condition. Everything is here, the light up logo, the chrome Ampeg logo on the front of the cab and the dolly. The latches work as they should with no issues.

My technician has serviced the amp so its ready to go with no issues and comes with 3 months warranty. During the service my tech changed the power transformer as it had given up! The replacement is from Fliptops and is the 240V version, so the amp can be used in Europe without a step down transformer. (the mains plug is changed for a 3 pin UK plug) lucite logo and knobs replaced ( again from Fliptops) The solid state rectifier was a little loose but has now been fixed. The speaker has been replaced with a brand new Jenson C15N. Everything else is original.

Most importantly of all the sound is fantastic. This amp wont disappoint in terms of sound or looks. Don't miss out on getting that cool Motown sound.
