Up for sale, a 1962 Magnatone Giulietti S-9 vintage tube amplifier in exceptional, collector-grade condition and in perfect working order. Complete with the original footswitch, the S-9 is virtually identical to the 260 model, with a 2×12 speaker configuration and lush pitch shifting vibrato. Produced in the Magna Electrics era (pre-Estey), this Magnatone features two channels with individual Volume and EQ controls as well as a bright switch. Driven by a pair of Wing C Svetlana 6L6 power tubes, the amp has a rich, lush sound capable of delivering both articulate cleans and overdriven roar. Of course at the heart of any Magnatone is their varistor-based true pitch shifting vibrato circuit, which is thick and watery, with a Leslie-esque swirl and unequalled. As a top of the line Magnatone amplifier, the Giulietti S-9 has a complex true point-to-point hand wired circuit which has been recently serviced to sound its best, balancing originality and functionality. The circuit retains all of the original blue Ajax molded caps in the preamp and CTS pots that date to the 32nd week of 1962. All of the original Schumacher transformers are intact including a power transformer that dates to the 47th week of 1961 and an output transformer that dates to the 22nd week of 1962. The power tubes are a pair of Wing C Svetlana 6L6s which are properly biased and have plenty of life. The amp retains its original speakers, which are a pair of Oxford 12K5s that date to the 32nd week of 1962. The original black speckled covering is extremely clean with only a few small scuffs and light wear on the bottom corners of the cabinet, and the faceplate is remarkably well kept as well with vibrant silkscreened graphics and all of the original knobs.
