Does anyone know of any manufactuers of old amps that are fairly unknown? I'm talking about stuff like old Gibsons, Silvertones, and Harmonys.

How about Quantum? I use to have an old mini stack from them but try as I might, I cannot find any pics of it on the net.

Vintage Traynors are awesome, underpriced amps. Same goes for Musicman, Sovtek and Novik.

Whatever, there still might be a chance.

The resonant frequency of the clitoris is too low for the guitar players to take care of.

Garnet. Motley Crue used them on Dr. Feelgood to fill out the 'bottom end.'

Not to mention Mr. Garnet's Herzog is responsible for Randy Bachman's guitar sound on American Woman, one of the best tones of all time.

See, you learn something new every day. All I knew about Garnet was that they were Canadian.

I've never even heard of them.

I discover a new guitar or amp company every week, on average.

I've got an amp that was made around 1960. The brand name is excelsior. I got it from ebay about six years ago. I'm pretty sure it was meant to be an accordian amp. I redid the whole thing. It's a neat little amp. The power tubes are 6AQ5.
#21
Bedrock. They were only made for a few years I think so there aren't a ton of them. I've seen them both for cheap and for probably a bit too much.
I have a huge fear if rays.
#22
I have a '59 Magnatone, a '48 Ampro, a late 60's (?) Cordovox, and a couple 60's Silvertones collecting dust in my basement (and mind).

Somebody say vintage Peavey's?
Check out the Mace VT.

My Mother can play the accordion - thank god that she doesn't. I have no idea why somebody would want to amplify one

Listen to The Band's "When I Paint My Masterpiece" and tell me accordion isn't awesome. or any Zydeco/Cajun/Acadian music.

Selmer made some nice amps back in the day, too bad they aren't easy to find

God i really want a non famous 1 watt tube amp to plug in and play right now...

http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290385896502&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

it's 14 more watts than you wanted, but it seems like a decent amp to fiddle around with.
