Description

A vintage 1964 Selmer Treble & Bass Fifty head and Goliath cabinet. The head is cosmetically clean but is in player-grade condition. This one was a bit of a mess when it came to us--holes hacked in the chassis, an off-spec power trasformer and mods held together with electrical tape. We pulled out all of the bad work, installed an appropriate power transformer, and repurposed another drilled hole to mount an adjustable bias potentiometer. Fortunately, the original circuitry was largely intact, and after hours of work, this amp is arguably the best-sounding Selmer we've ever had in the shop.

This EL-34-powered amp has a big clean tone and sparkly crunch that rides a line between the classic American and British amps of the era. As expected, the Goliath cabinet has a huge bottom end, but, unlike with most 18" speakers, it's still has plenty of snap and clarity. Overall, the amp sounds awesome and will impress any player looking for a unique vintage look and sound. This amps has been cleaned and tested. It is fully functional and sounds incredible.
