1965 Ampeg B15NF. Serial:011914. It's fully serviced with a 3 month warranty and comes supplied with a step down transformer. Ideal for low volume studio work. Original CTS speaker dates to 1965. The cab is double baffled. The amp is 30 W. Dolly included. The reference books I have state that when Ampeg switched the model designation from NC to NF the cabs changed to single baffle. This NF head is matched with a double baffled cabinet and the sticker inside the cabinet matches the serial number on the head, so I believe this to be a B15 from the transition period. The serial number and all the components, including the speaker date production to mid 65 which is when the change from NC to NF is documented to have happened.

The tolex is in excellent condition with only minor wear and tear. The grill cloth is in great shape with no visible wear. The metal work shows a small amount of oxidisation but no rusting, it retains its shine. During the service my technician changed the power chord from a two pin to a three pin and fitted an earth tag to make it safe. Also noted:The tubes are not original but are all USA made. The filter and electrolytic caps are replaced. New light up Ampeg logo. Otherwise the amp 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.
