Hope y'all don't mind amp pics in a guitar thread... it is
a guitar amp..
This is an old Ampeg VT-22 c.1971 I think. My bass player (RIP Bob Crosby) brought it by one day, asking if I could do anything with it. Absolutely, as soon as I can get to it. Well, I was too late.
This amp was a disaster. Dirt, missing speaker (the one there is blown anyway), rat turds, bugs, etc. The good news was it's electronics were intact, and using a Variac and a homemade dummy load, got it up and running.
I cleaned up the chassis and cab. The grillecloth was bad too but I stopped at replacing it. I thought the rips and tears added character. If these amps could talk, they'd have some stories to tell. The grillecloth is now clean, took a lot of MeanGreen to get the crud out.
Printed up new manuals, ads and tags, just for fun.
More cleaning, "new" nos RCA black plate 7027As, and a few other tubes that needed replacing, new 3 prong power cord, new speaker to chassis cable, new Celestion GT75 12" speakers. These GT12s aren't my first choice in speaker, but your options narrow when the amp's output is 120W.
Knew those tags would come in handy..
120W, 88lbs on casters (thank god) 4x7027A output tubes. This amp is the loudest, cleanest amp I've ever played through. So much headroom your head will split open before you can get it break up. Very pedal friendly though, a TS-808 works great with it. I still have it, guess it's mine now.
