Rare 1948 Flot-A-Tone Vintage Guitar Tube Amp Harp Accordion Amplifier

Very hard to find 1948 Flot-A-Tone Tube amp in working order. These amps were made in Milwaukee and each amp made varied a bit when produced with different options, color schemes etc. This particular one has a tremolo line input which Ive never seen on one before, with some hand lettered/painted areas. The amp is all original and untouched, only cleaned up. The tube is dated 1948. Amp has a 12 speaker which is original to it. The sounds is fantastic very warm tone like youd expect on a vintage amp but as you crank it up it has a great vintage gritty sounds thats very hard to replicate. The line input for the tremolo on the bottom needs work so I never used that one. I just didnt want to touch it. Great working vintage amp here that Im told sounds even better for a harmonica or accordion if thats your thing.

A DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THIS RARE VINTAGE KNIGHT EL84 TUBE AMPLIFIER IS PROVIDED AFTER THE PHOTOS. PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO SEE THE DESCRIPTION. This amplifier is one of the smallest and cutest EL84 tube amplifiers that Ive ever seen. I wasnt going to sell this amplifier since it is so cool-looking and cute but I decided to sell it and let it go to a new home where someone can appreciate and enjoy it. DETAILED INFORMATION INVOLVING THE AMPLIFIER. As the photos show, this amplifier has a very interesting, unique, and distinctive look to it as mentioned above and would make a wonderful addition to any vintage amplifier collection. It is also one of the smallest (and cutest) EL84 tube amplifiers that Ive ever seen. It is a Knight mono EL84 tube amplifier and has a very attractive and stylish look to it as the photos show. There is no model number on it but, from what Ive seen on the Internet, it appears to be a Model KM-15 (or possibly 83Y784). It has a very distinctive look to it and is very small probably one of the smallest 5-tube EL84 amplifiers ever made. Its chassis is only approximately 9.5 inches long and approximately 6 inches wide! I have also provided some good close-up views of this amplifier from a number of different angles. The amplifier chassis has a nice black finish on it with white lettering on the front which has the KNIGHT name on it. The black finish along with the silver-colored knobs creates a very cool-looking and retro appearance and in, in my view, the chassis looks good. There are some dings, dents, bends, nicks, scrapes, scratches, discolored areas, etc. Some of these items are difficult to see in the photos but they are there. Nonetheless, while the chassis shows signs of use, wear, etc. It again looks fairly good in my opinion, especially for its age probably around 60 years old! Regarding the knobs, they are all present and look very good in my view. They are very cool and distinctive-looking with their silver-colored inserts. There are some scratches, scrapes, etc. On the knobs but, overall, they look really nice in my view. As to whether they are original or not, I dont believe that they are original based on what Ive seen on the Internet but they appear to be fairly close to what the original knobs looked like according to various pictures of this amplifier that Ive seen on-line. But, in the absence any information to the contrary, it should be assumed that the knobs are not original but they look really good in my opinion. As discussed further below, this amplifier has not been tested and I have no idea as to the condition of the tubes, electronic components, wires, transformers and the other components, parts, switches, and controls, etc. Associated with the amplifier. I have not inspected, tested, or done anything to any of the components inside and outside of the amplifier and I know nothing about their condition. It should also be assumed that the amplifier is not working. Please make a note of this. However, as stated above, the amplifier is in nice cosmetic condition in my view as the photos clearly show. On the front of the amplifier, there are 2 white slide-switch, with one being labelled ON/OFF and the other being labelled PHONO/TUNER. These switches do seem somewhat tight (especially the ON/OFF switch) so they may need attention, replacement, etc. Accordingly, I have no idea if they (or any of the other controls) are good or not since I have not tested them. On one side of the amplifier, there are two jacks, with one being labelled PHONO and the other being labelled TUNER. At the rear of the amplifier there is a terminal strip with 4 screw-terminals (labelled 16, 8, 4, and C). There are also 3 controls on the front of the amplifier which are associated with the above-listed knobs. I do not know what these controls do. Likewise, I do not know what any of these switches, jacks, terminals, controls, etc. Do, whether they are operational/functional, whether they are original or not, etc. Regarding the power cord/plug, I dont know if it is original or not, if it is good or not, if it is wired correctly or not, and if it is the correct and appropriate one for this amplifier. This amplifier has a fairly large power transformer and an output transformer mounted on top of the chassis. They have a black finish which nicely matches the black finish of the amplifier chassis in my view. The power transformer has the following numbers on it: 101313 and 412922. Likewise, the output transformer has the following numbers on it: 102208 and 412915. I did notice that the power transformer has some scrapes, scratches, scuffs, and missing paint on it with the output transformer also having some scrapes, scratches, scuffs, missing paint, etc. It also appears that most some or most of these items (along with some blemishes on the amplifier chassis) were touched-up by the amplifiers former owner with black paint, black pen, or some other black materials. Please check out the photos of these items which show them from a number of different views and, in my view, they look decent. One thing which I did notice is that various portions of the amplifier chassis beneath the power transformer where the transformer is attached to the chassis have at least some areas which are bent downwardly. Some of this bending can be seen at the front of the amplifier as shown in the photos. I have no idea what this means and it is possible that something heavy was placed on the power transformer or the amplifier was dropped on its power transformer or something else. On the other hand the amplifier might have been this way since it was new. I have no idea regarding this situation and what caused it but I wanted to mention it. Accordingly, I have no idea if both of the transformers in this amplifier are good, functional, operational, original, correct for this amplifier, etc. Likewise, I will leave an assessment and analysis of both transformers as well as all of the amplifiers other parts, components, tubes, power cord/plug, controls, switches, etc. Regarding the tubes which are included with the amplifier (and came with it when I bought it), they are as follows: (A) 6BQ5 (EL84); (B) 6BQ5 EL84; (C) 6CA4; (D) 12AX7A; and (E) 12AX7A. I have provided a photo of these tubes. Regarding all of these tubes, I do not know if they are good or not and I have not tested them. I also dont know if these tubes are the correct ones for this amplifier, if they are original or not, and if they are in the correct sockets. Also, I did not check the tube sockets and I likewise cannot warrant or guarantee that they are good, original, functional, and operational. In addition, there are 2 silver-colored tube shields with this amplifier and were included with it when I bought it. I dont believe that they are original for this amplifier based on what Ive seen on the internet and they have some bends, scrapes, etc. However, in my view, they look fairly good and have a nice shiny appearance. I have provided an underside view of the amplifier chassis in one of the photos with its bottom cover removed. I have no idea if the wiring in the amplifier is correct or good and I dont know anything about the transformers used by the amplifier, as well as the other electronic components capacitors, resistors, controls, switches, etc. Associated with the amplifier. Specifically, I dont know whether or not these components and all of the other components/parts associated with the amplifier are good, correct, original, functional, properly-wired, etc. And I also dont know whether or not there are any missing components and parts. In addition, I dont know anything about the condition of the resistors, capacitors, wires, transformers, tubes, etc. And whether or not they are original, functional, correct for this amplifier, etc. As noted above, the amplifier has a bottom plate which I have also shown in the photos. The plate is in decent condition in my opinion although it does have a number of scuffs, scratches, scrapes, bends, dents, etc. On it from use and age. The plate is held in position by 6 screws. I dont know if these screws are original, correct, and proper for this amplifier. However, they look nice and shiny. Accordingly, I did not conduct an in-depth or detailed inspection of this amplifier for damage, missing parts, broken parts, incorrect parts, etc. Likewise, I would encourage a detailed overview of the many clear photos of this amplifier inside and out that I have provided since these photos should be considered to be part of the current description of the amplifier. In summary, this amplifier is, in my view, nice-looking, impressive, and has a very distinctive retro appearance. I also believe that it looks good for its age! Likewise, it is very clean-looking. Accordingly, it would make a wonderful addition to any vintage tube amplifier collection! Are original or not, and whether it is complete. I have not done anything to this amplifier and all of its parts, transformers, wires, electronic components, tubes, sockets, capacitors, resistors, jacks, switches, controls, power cord/plug, terminals, tube shields, and all of its other components and I know nothing about their condition. The above-described amplifier may have been worked on, repaired, and/or modified by someone else in the past, but I dont know whether this is true or not. In this regard, I have done nothing to this amplifier and I have not inspected it internally or externally and have not tested it (or any of its parts, tubes, controls, switches, power cord/plug, or other parts/components) in any manner. No other items such as boxes, cartons, paperwork, accessories, cages, or anything else are included. However, I do not know how much work, parts, wires, wiring work/replacement, repairs, rewiring, power transformer repair/replacement, output transformer repair/replacement, electronic components, power cord/plug, controls, tubes, jacks, sockets, resistors, capacitors, switches, terminals, tube shields, or other components/parts, etc. This amplifier is fairly heavy for its size. This amplifier has been very carefully packed/wrapped and is double-boxed, with all of its tubes being removed from their sockets and separately-wrapped. While I will pack this amplifier very securely, some of the wires, components, parts, capacitors, resistors, sockets, transformers, jacks, controls, knobs, terminals, and other parts/components etc. However, I have done my best to try and prevent these situations by very carefully packing and double-boxing this amplifier although I cannot guarantee that they wont happen. Furthermore, all of the tubes, tube sockets, tube shields, capacitors, resistors, jacks, transformers, sockets, switches, power cord/plug, terminals, and all of the amplifiers other components/parts need to be checked out by an electronic expert to see if the tubes are good, if the tubes are the correct ones for this amplifier, if the tubes are in the correct sockets, and if all of the tubes, tube sockets, tube shields, capacitors, resistors, jacks, transformers, power cord/plug, sockets, switches, terminals, and all of the amplifiers other components/parts are good, functional, correct for this amplifier, and operational before the amplifier is powered-up, tested, used, worked on, connected to any other equipment, instruments, or components, connected to a power source/supply, connected to any speakers, handled, repaired, modified, upgraded, etc. Likewise, I have no idea whether everything is original or not in the above-listed equipment and I therefore cannot make any warranties regarding originality. I also do not warrant that this amplifier is complete and I do not know if there are any missing, damaged, or incorrect parts, components, etc. This amplifier involves a piece of used vintage electrical equipment which needs restoration/repair, etc. The item “RARE VINTAGE KNIGHT EL84 TUBE AMP AMPLIFIER (VERY CLEAN AND CUTE LOOK!)” is in sale since Sunday, August 30, 2020. This item is in the category “Consumer Electronics\Vintage Electronics\Vintage Audio & Video\Vintage Amplifiers & Tube Amps”. The seller is “jaymalkin” and is located in Wheat Ridge, Colorado.

RARE Vintage RCA Tube Amplifier Amp MI-12218-B Portable HIFI Turntable PA System

Up for sale folks is a vintage RCA tube amplifier with built in turntable. It appears be be a fairly nice unit, and to my understanding is like a very high quality portable stereo system. The amp is an MI-12218-B. The record player built into the top cover is an MI-4833-A. The amp uses two 6V6 output tubes, three metal 6J7 tubes, and a single 5Y3G. The turntable appears to have one speed only and most likely is just 78RPM. The tonearm is Astatic SL-8 with a ceramic cartridge. The center adapter for the platter is missing, and will have to retrofit a piece to fit. I have NOT tested any aspect of this unit, and as it is a vintage tube amplifier, it should have the tubes checked and brought up on a variac. It appears to be complete and all original, with no modifications. This uses a specialty AC adapter that plugs into the front to power the unit. The plug and cord is included but is missing the two prong adapter on the end. This has been sitting for many, many years so will need to be completely restored. It has an inch of dust and dirt on it. There is some light corrosion on top of the metal case and sides. In addition, the chassis is not so perfect, with some surface rust from storage. Please view all photos and remember that it is a PROJECT! I have not tested it or powered it up. IT WILL NEED TO BE RESTORED! Please let me know if you have any questions!

The Hilgen amps are very hard to come by as they weren’t really mass produced and were only made for three years. This one is fully serviced with no issues or weird quirks, and ready for years of enjoyment! The Challenger is an 18W all-tube point to point handwired 112 combo with two channels that each have individual volume and tone controls, with onboard reverb and tremolo. The first channel is more Fender-y and has guitar and bright inputs. The second channel is a bit richer and reminds me of vintage Ampeg (which Jack also supposedly helped with designs as they were both New Jersey companies), and has instrument and accordion inputs. All jacks and controls work as should. I replaced the electrolytic caps and one out of tolerance wax & paper capacitor with new audio grade caps. All of the original Mullard mustard caps are still intact!! I also removed the death cap and installed a grounded power supply cable for safety. I cleaned all pots, jacks, and power/rectifier tube sockets. This uses a 6X4 (reverb driver), two 12AX7, and two 12AU7 in the preamp. It also uses a pair of 7591 power tubes and a 5U4GB tube rectifier. This comes with the original CTS 12 speaker that still sounds great also! The reverb is pretty unique as it’s a shorter and slightly brighter one, although it sounds great and works really well with the circuit. The tremolo is currently in Off position and the previous owner couldn’t find the footswitch. Any standard two button footswitch with a 1/4 jack should do the trick though. Cosmetically it’s in pretty great shape for being a little over fifty years old! The original grill cloth and tolex are both fully intact and the faceplate still looks great! One of the rubber feet is partially broken off and it does show some minor wear from age though. If you have any questions, feel free to message me. I will remove the power and rectifier tubes and package them separately inside the amplifier.
