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.

Up for sale, a 1973 Sound City 120, new old stock and stunningly clean with the original transparent factory slip cover, extra Sound City badge and a couple accompanying factory tags. From the private collection of revered amp builder Mike Soldano, this Sound City originally surfaced via a buyout of NOS Sound City stock courtesy of Angela Instruments. Produced by Dallas Arbiter in the UK, and perhaps a brand best known for the early career of Dave Reeves before he founded Hiwatt, the Sound City 120 is an absolute powerhouse with a sextet of EL34 power tubes and massive Partridge transformers. This two channel (Normal and Brilliant) design features Standard and Attenuated inputs feeding independent Volume knobs and a global three-band EQ circuit which is entirely active. Unlike the EQ stages of most amps, each EQ knob in this lineup is active, and as you turn up Bass, Middle, or Treble respectively, you add gain precisely to that portion of the frequency spectrum, courtesy of an ECC83 (12AX7) triode attached to each stage in the circuit. It’s a unique system and a powerful sound sculpting tool not found on your conventional Marshall or Hiwatt. Beyond the EQ section the Presence knob governs high-end content at the output stage. The circuit is virtually untouched, and the turret board design retains all of the original mustard capacitors. The sextet of EL34 power tubes comes via a variety of manufacturers (Telefunken, Mullard, and Sylvania among them), yet all tubes were carefully matched and perform beautifully in the circuit. The preamp tubes are the original compliment with clean silkscreen graphics on the glass. Cosmetically, the amp is stunningly clean, and not to say that it hasn’t incurred a couple minor scuffs and nicks on the edges of the cabinet in the last four decades, but as the photos attest, this is an immaculate vintage example. All of the original knobs are intact with their transparent skirts, and the faceplate is clean as can be, accented by silver piping on the face of the enclosure. Check out our shop “Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar, ” and please let us know if we can answer any questions! We use double thick boxes, 1″ foam, and industrial 1/2″ bubble wrap to ensure that your amp arrives safely.
