Up for sale is a 1968 Sunn Coliseum PA head all original with Sunn labeled Genelec KT-88 tubes and Dynaco transformer. This Amp is probably my most valuable out of any coliseum PA head Ive ever owned.
It came with all the original Sunn Labeled Genelec KT-88 tubes in excellent working condition These particular Genelec tubes which are the most desirable tubes out. If you would like to hear how this amp rig sounds, please go to YouTube and put in SUNN Colosseum PA head Al Romano. You will see a demonstration video of me playing this particular set up.This is an extremely rare amp and set up. 2- staggered 4x12 cabinets with Jensen C-22N 12 inch speakers as favored by Leslie West of Mountain.
Leslie West of Mountain used a Sunn Coliseum PA head at Woodstock and on the songHe also used a Coliseum PA Head on all of the Mountain albums live and studio from 1969 to 1972. Nothing sounds like a Coliseum PA head!! This is the same exact set up that Jimi Hendrix used. Hendrix used Jensens and Leslie West used Eminence. The Sunn cabinets are made of special wood which has a unique sound.
I have owned just about every vintage amplifier ever manufactured including a real Trainwrecks Express, Plexi Marshalls ect. This is one of my favorite guitar amplifiers and set up of all time hands-down. For decades I searched for one and I could never find one.Luckily with the advent of the Internet I was able to find several and I have a handful in my collection. Now its time to thin the herd out. They were just elusive to find! This one is working perfectly and has been gone over by Jimi Pages amp tech Mitch Colby who gave the amp a clean bill of health. Mitch do installed a new top of the line F&T filter cap. Please watch my video on YouTube where you can hear me tell the story of the Sunn Coliseum PA head.
Please disregard the photos of the speaker cabinets with the Eminence Silverdome speakers. The original Jensen Sunn labeled C-12N 12 inch speakers have been put back into the cabinets. I just need to re-photograph the cabinets and havent had time to do that.
