It was a bit noisy and I bought a Fender Twin reverb and put the subject amp on the shelf and rarely used it. Made in England By Dallas Arbiter. Headphone Output For a brief time, the Sound City 120 and 200 Plus provided a front-panel, high-impedance headphone output. These amplifiers probably sounds best with a comparable British sounding speaker. Some people call this selector a dial and think you just turn it, but this isn't correct.

Use good tubes, don't use the sensitivity switch, get it serviced by a good tech which you should've done anyway , and be careful where you put the amp in a room. The layout was similar to early Hiwatts, but the circuit appeared to be a bit different at the glance. Looks a bit rough but totally solid. If shipped, all tubes will be removed and labeled.
I don't know a lot about these. Regarding cabs, the pre-1970 ones were great and the later ones not so much thinner wood, lower powered speakers. This amp is functional, but has not been serviced in many years as it has been in storage climate controlled for decades. Still some can be found for a good deal though. I've played others that were waaayyy cleaner. That's what I did, at least. Did I mention some of the Sound City cabs had Fanes? Are something I try to specialize in at amps-n-bits.
Just to confirm that we did not use Partridge transformers in our amps. Basically overall is a very British sounding amplifier but more in the vein of the hiwatt amplifiers. Tax Policies This seller doesn't charge tax on their sales. All the downloadable content on this website has been scanned thoroughly for viruses. Also a post phase master for.
The amp will be packed with peanuts, bubble wrap, and extra cardboard to ensure it arrives safely. This is a pretty warm tube amplifier. This configuration makes for an amp that takes a little getting used to alongside the standard passive-interactive tone stage, but one that makes a powerful sound sculptor once you get the hang of it. The connectors are the same as the old Hiwatt: Six inputs: 2 Slavonic, 2 normal and 2 Clean attnues or not A slecteur voltages 105, 115, 225 and 245 Deffet loop. I stopped dealing with them in '74-75. As far as radio stations, I've never owned a superlead from any era that wasn't prone to acting as a radio receiver.
Reeves, who started his own company, Hylight Electronics, in 1966, needed capital to start manufacturing his own amplifiers, and agreed to a contract as Sound City's chief design engineer for a period of time. It is a fairly rare amp and I have absolutely no intention of me spare. In 1966, Arbiter began producing the Fuzz Face Germanium fuzz pedals that Jimi Hendrix made extremely popular, as well as Dallas with the Rangemaster Treble Booster a year prior, used by Eric Clapton, Ritchie Blackmore, and Brian May, among others both of these products were answers to similar Vox units, as well. Dallas Arbiter began building the 200 watt L200 and B200 amps during this time. The 200 watt amps were also switched over to active circuit. The selector is actually a small cap that is plugged into a socket that is attached to the chassis. I had a L120, 73 vintage.
. I replaced those old capacitors after taking the pictures. The voltage drop on the resistor causes the voltage on one side of that resistor to be at a different potential than the the voltage on the other side of the resistor. Most or all of these amps did not have a master volume. The cap should have two or three metal prongs on it that plug into two or three holes in the socket. But as long as you're cool with that, they can be a lot of fun.

I've been using the 50 for years I can't say I was a big fan of the active eq. Early 1970s Sound City L 120 all-tube amp. They are great in their own way. Just thought this would be of interest.
