Delivering 10 or 12 watts through its stock Jensen P10R speaker, this insanely great-sounding amp produces hearty tones at bedroom-level volumes, but it can also hang tough at low-volume gigs (as we all get older, those are the kinds of gigs we, favor—gotta protect what’s left of our hearing, you know). Happily, this amp practically defines tweed goodness at non-deafening volumes, yielding juicy warmth until you push the volume put to around 4, then getting all girthy and raspy until you approach 8. From that point up until you top at 12 (that’s right—this amp goes one higher than 11!) this Harvard is the very picture of wild abandon and unrefined but highly musical crunch. Absolutely original and in amazing condition, this amp was literally an under-the-bed find and has spent the vast majority of its life wrapped in a protective blanket. Clean enough for the fussiest collector (there is just the slightest evidence of pitch stain on one side (see photo), but so great sounding you’ll immediately want to press it into service with your favorite 335, Tele, Strat, Country Gent, or other favored guitar. One of the finest amps we have had come through the shop. We’ll be sorry to see this one go! $3000.
