Purchased used. US cable changed to EU standard.
Amp has enough power, gives somewhat beefy sound. The volume knob need just a little twist to go from really quiet to really loud sound (just a few clicks). May be the electronics has to be refreshed. Otherwise a solid performer. The sound is not as detailed as with my new tube amplifier but for parties or if I want an vintage sound it is ok.

Pots and switches need to be cleaned.

Hey everyone!

Does someone know what Tone switch (on/off) in this amplifier stands for?
