Add a fully specified speaker emulated output, MP3 / Line Input, plus an 4-16Ω speaker output and you have everything you need for recording or practicing.

Ampeg SS-70 Solid State Combo Amp - $170
Good condition and functional Vega Commander tube amp from the 1940s, my best guess is 1946. Vega has been in existence since 1903, originally in Boston and then purchased by C. F. Martin in 1970 and then sold to a Korean company in 1980.
I had this professionally checked out for functionality and had the pots cleaned up. 3 inputs – instruments can be plugged into any of the 3, with the 3rd input also suitable for a microphone. 2 volume controls – 1 each for instrument and microphone. The 3rd control knob is on/off as well as bass and treble. Just one small spot on the vibrato speed knob where it increases speed to the max, but overall the full range of vibrato and speed is functional.
This includes what appears to be the original footswitch used to turn the vibrato on and off. Cosmetically this is in really good shape for a 73 year old amp!

"That amp is my secret weapon....it's been on so many recordings" - Andrew, Music Producer
Very good condition Silvertone Model 1482 Tube Combo Amp, great warm sounding tremolo machine and I believe all-original and that this is likely a 1965.
