Vintage Made In England Sound City B120 120w Bass Or Guitar Tube Amp Head

Made in England vintage 1970′s Sound City 120B 120 Watt bass amplifier head. This head is a BEAST and while these heads are not for everybody they. Have built a loyal following over the years. He was afraid to plug it into a cabinet for fear that this mighty head might blow the speakers! I have since tested it out, plugging it into a Peavey 4×12 guitar cabinet. To my ear it sounded pretty good, and did not blow any speakers in the cabinet despite its power. Having been in storage for years I’m sure it could use some work. It has six (count’em six) EL34 power tubes providing the 120 watts, three of which of the legendary vIntage Mullard EL34 power tubes, which I believe to be the original tubes. Of the 3 additional replacement EL34′s one is a vintage RCA, one a vintage GE and one a vintage Sylvania, all well respected tubes in their own right. All of the preamp tubes are Brimar (again, probably the original tubes). Two Partridge Transformer, which is what these heads originally came with. One does look newer so I don’t know if that might be a replacement. I can see that at least 3 of the pots have been replaced as they don’t match the rest. Some scratchiness in some of the pots. One of the knobs in the front was missing so I replaced that one with a “chicken head ” knob. I used to sell a lot of guitar amps on here and in the past I would have taken a head such as this to an amp tech and would have paid hundreds of dollars to have them go through the amp and restore it prior to listing it. I will guaranteee it will power on. The general consensus (from what I’ve read in online threads) regarding these heads is that they could use some mods to improve their sound and playability, although there is some dispute as to the optimum mods. Cosmetically this head is (in my opionion) in pretty good shape for a 40+ year old head. One small nick in the front bottom left section of the tolex but otherwise no rips or tears in the original tolex. Some wear in the top tolex and elsewhere. I have priced this head taking into account the need for resoration and repair and would be listing it for MUCH more were it already restored.

Sound City B120, theoretically the bass version, but no real difference between them. The amp made famous in the modern age by Electric Wizard. Been recapped and a bunch of work done, still some hiss from the preamp, but manageable at the sort of volumes this should be operating at. Sleeve has been recovered not super well, but it functions. This one has Partridge transformers. Obviously this is a heavy lump, but I can have it couriered, would massively prefer collection though.
