    It's a '61 Harmony 306A and all original cept the handle as far as i can see. Sounds completely killer and crusty, think Pat Hare.....if you don't know him, look him up. It needs some love for sure but i dig it right now so it can only get better. 20190926_160006.jpg 20190926_161304.jpg 20190927_183755.jpg 10 watts through a P12R

    Actually it's a Valco amp which is made for Harmony. They do sound killer.

    That sounded absolutely fantastic. Nice score and great playing.

    Just noodling? Or is that a song from Someone? Excellent

    Follow up on this. So the original Jensen was on its last leg and i finished it off, it will be sent to Weber for a re-cone. The plus is that i put in a Oxford alnico i had and it actually has some clean headroom before it rat's out. It's really a killer living room jam amp, it hangs perfectly with my Supro Tremo Verb.
    Like alot of old amps though its EQ (one knob) leaves alot to be desired so i've been using my Morley/Award JD 10 pre for its EQ.
    All its old tubes tested excellent and none of the caps were leaky, still needs a couple jacks though but not on the channel i use.
    Happy, great amp.

    They really went into detail with the relic. They even included a stain on the inside, great work.
