Up for sale, a 1940's Vega Commander 1x10 tube amp, honestly worn and freshly serviced. A very unique amp with more in common visually with a console radio of the era than most conventional guitar amps, this Vega features a natural-finished birdseye maple face with brown leatherette back and sides. With two channels that have a similar gain structure, the amp stays clean and warm from 1-4 on the dial, with more grit and bite from 5-8, and a sizzling, tight roar when you dime it out.
This amp can deliver some serious bark while keeping things focused and round in the bass register. Never too ratty and quite refined, with a glassy top end response, this Vega is a real vintage gem powered by a single 6L6 power tube. The circuit features the original transformers, with many of the original tone caps intact in the preamp and new caps as necessary to keep everything working as intended. All of the tubes are vintage valves from the likes of RCA, Ken-Rad, and Sylvania.The original Jensen 10 alnico speaker is intact, functioning as intended. The cable is a vintage two-prong.
The faceplate is quite clean with the trio of original deep brown chicken head knobs, and the birdseye maple face shows its fair share of darkening and surface wear. A brand-new leather handle has been installed, and the brown leatherette shows some expected minor tears and edge wear from the past 70+ years. Both back panels are present too.Check out our shop "Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, " and please let us know if we can answer any questions!
