It sounds really clean, only one channel, no gain, ect...I'm guessing built in the 60s? And I found it in my basement lol

Ampeg makes pretty nice tube amps, so I'm guessin that one might be worth some cheese. How does it sound? Crank and see what it sounds like when it overdrives. CLIPS!

Edit: The tubes alone are worth some bucks if they're in good condition.

Good find, but not can't help yah. I would try and find a serial number or search Ampeg's site, as well as clean it up a bit. Might be worth quite a bit.
#4
The tubes need to be changed lol (I'm guessing haven't been changed in 20 years atleast). It sounds terrible and it cracks, the tremolo knob makes a popping sound and the volume seems to die after 5 :S

Why can't I find amps in my basement?! Maybe because I don't have a basement...

Yeah, but you already have a bunch of ridiculous amps. If you found like a bassman in your basement there would be an awesome amp blackhole in your house.

Erock definately does not need any more sweet amp-

What am I saying? You can never have enough sweet amps!!!!!

And no help on the model, although isn't that like one of the few types of tube amps Ampeg made?

I knew I was going to regret posting that pic, it exposed my fiendish gear whoring levels lately. Yeah, I'm in no need of another amp at the moment, I'm still trying to decide what to get rid of, lol. Still, would be cool to find something old and gear related at least once. I'm sick of finding nothing but dust bunnys and mothballs.

haha, my luck isn't that unforunate

I kid though, I have no hatred for the practice size spiders, it's a lot better than the amp I started playing guitar on. A Dean Markley bass amp and a DS1 pedal, lol. I would have been in heaven with something like a Spider!

Lol, me too eric. I had a squier strat with horrible intonation problems, and a peavey microbass. I am gonna hook up all 3 of my ODs to it, turn all the knobs to full and plug in my squire to it. And then I can audition for worst tone. Like, I am gonna see what the worst possible tone I can make is. Lol.

Nice.

I wish amps showed up randomly in my basement.

But, I have a pretty good pair of amps ATM.
But, I wish I had more just to play around with.

I'd fix that ampeg up. It probably needs new tubes, perhaps the speaker is worn.
But, it'd be worth it to fix.

Crackling and volume dying out means it needs new filter caps. I'd guess the pots need to be cleaned and the tubes need to be changed as well. A lot of those old Ampegs had 7591 power tubes, or some similar type that's hard to find now. You may want to have it converted to 6l6s, it shouldn't be a difficult job. It needs a 3-prong power cord and a cap change anyway, your tech can probably do it for a few bucks more while he's doing those things.
