Up for sale, a 1963 Orpheum vintage USA-made tube amplifier in excellent condition and in perfect working order. Produced by Valco (the Chicago-based company responsible for Supro, National and others), this Orpheum is a miniature vintage wonder that delivers the kind of midrange thickness and grit that’s unique to Valco’s vintage preamps and original point-to-point circuits. Powered by a single 6V6 power tube pushing an oval shaped alnico speaker, this amp is perfectly suited for the recording studio, and sounds positively huge with a mic in front of it. The circuit couldn’t be simpler, with Volume and Tone controls, as well as two 1/4″ inputs, independently voiced for “Standard” or “Treble. The additional tremolo control both engages the effect and controls its speed. Aside from a couple new capacitors as necessary, the circuit is completely original. The pots are original, and both original transformers are intact, made by Triwec and dating to 1963. The original textured black ostrich covering is intact on the amp and in fantastic shape, along with the stock gold sparkle grillcloth and fragile plastic “Orpheum” badge on the amp’s face. The chrome faceplate retains the original knobs and has plenty of shine to the chrome plating, retaining virtually all of the original black silkscreened text. The original small serial number badge is intact on the back of the amp beneath the back panel, and aside from some light wear around the corners of the enclosure, this Orpheum is quite clean and would look great in a studio!
