This 1963 Ampeg B15N is in very good condition and all original other than the speaker and replacement tubes. Fitted with a "Utah" speaker which sounds fantastic .My technician Chris Ward has serviced the amp so its ready to go with no issues. 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. These labels are often missing as is the case with this B15. The reason for dating it 1963 is because the pot codes read 137-6306. (dating them to the 6th week of 1963) Also this B15 has a hand wired circuit board.

Most of the tolex is clean but there are a few bumps and scrapes and a few areas where the edges of the rolex has began to peal. 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.

Most importantly of all the sound is fantastic. This amp wont disappoint in terms of sound or looks and comes supplied with a step down transformer.

Fully serviced with a 3 month warranty. Don't miss out on getting that cool Motown sound.
