This half-stack is one of two used by Eric Clapton during the Arms Benefit US Tour in December 1983. Modifications to the head include conversion of the Bright switch circuit to a Mid-Shift circuit and the addition of an Effects Loop.
The BRIGHT switch has been re-labelled MID-SHIFT to reflect the mod. Two additional jacks marked PRE AMP LINE OUT and POWER AMP LINE INPUT are installed on the back panel.
The 2x12 Speaker Cabinet is a 1970s open-back style cabinet with the initial E stenciled on the back panel, a pair of 12-inch JBL blue label K120 alnico speakers, and a blue flight case with THE DUCK BROS. Stencil on one side and the number 14 on all sides.
This amp sounds absolutely killer. The first channel is not currently working.
The second channel works great. You do need a footswitch (not included) to operate the Reverb and Tremolo. Cosmetically, it shows wear and tear consistent with age and use but no serious issues or damage. As mentioned previously, the road case is included for the 2x12 cabinet.
Make'n Music is happy to offer them for sale on consignment from the original purchaser. Certificates of Authenticity signed by Eric Clapton are included. Please note: This is the guitar amplifier head included with Bonhams Lot 83 - It was erroneously listed with serial number B013153 in the Bonhams Catalog. A second Music Man HD150 Reverb Half Stack with serial number B013153 was included with Lot 84.
