1959 Premier Twin 8 in very good condition. Considered by many to be the king of harp amps. These Twin-8's are revered for their amazing saturated tube tone that is easy to achieve at low volumes, making them essential studio pieces for guitar and harmonica players alike! Crisp, clear mids and highs with tons of bark and presence are the essential qualities of this model's inspiring vintage tone. This unit also features a built-in tremolo circuit with a single speed/intensity control. The tube layout is 2x 12AX7 pre amp / 6V6 power / 6X4 rectifier. Inputs: 1 mic input, 2 instrument inputs Mic input is hotter. It has a pair of Best 8" speakers. Controls: Volume & Tone, Fixed Tremolo on/off.

I've dated the amp to 1959 because the speakers, pots and transformers all date to 59. There are a few scuffs in the covering but nothing major and everything remains structurally sound. It has the original speakers which are in great condition. It's been fully serviced by our amp tech and comes with 30-day warranty and a step-down transformer. My tech has added a 3-pin power cord and noted that the tubes are all USA made but may not be original to the amp. The only notable alterations are the grill cloth and a couple of replaced filter caps. The serial is 493343. Weight: 7kg.

Condition Very Good 8.5/10
Serial Number 493343
