condition: excellent
Selling my vintage 1961 Ampeg Reverberocket R-12r amp here. This is the 1st year of this amp available and has the Navy Random Flair tolex (right before the classic Ampeg blue check) and the 6V6 pair of power tubes with the 5Y3 rectifier and the 6SL7 and 6SN7 octal preamp tubes. The 5Y3 and 6SL7 tubes are original, the 6SN7 tubes are ultra high grade NOS 5692 JAN tubes from Brent Jessee, and the 6v6 tubes are modern replacements. Comes with 2 additional 6SN7 tubes.

Amp has had basic maintenance done already: new filter caps, couple resistors replaced, 3 prong cord added, new power switch added, etc. Original parts come with sale as shown. Handle is Ampeg replacement, original has disintegrated. Power cable has a small burn mark that is covered well by electrical tape (the cable is NOT exposed under the tape). The back panel is missing the top 2 screws as shown. Original Jensen "Syntox-6" C12R speaker included, installed. The speaker is also shown in pics as it was reconed by Weber speakers a few months back. Sounds amazing.

Otherwise, all original, cab is in great structural shape with no issues. Amp sounds amazing with no issues, BUT this is a 60+ year old vintage amp so may need further maintenance through regular use. Nothing to hide here, but just making sure the buyer knows the deal.

Please ask any questions you may have.
