Details

INVENTORY #32239

BRAND: Ampeg

MODEL: B-15NC

FUNCTION: Bass amp with column speaker cabinet

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: This listing is for a 1967 Ampeg B-15NC bass amplifier with original 2x15" Flip-Top column speaker cabinet owned by producer Brendan O'Brian. This version of the 2x15" Flip-Top, with a B-18 style tube driven head, is very rare as it was only available for a short period of time. 

SPECS:

  • Serial #: 070559
  • Cabinet is loaded with 2 Altec 421 15" speakers
  • 50W head, similar to a B-18 head
  • Tubes: 6SL7 x 2, 7199, 7027A x 2, 5AR4

ACCESSORIES INCLUDED: This item comes as seen in photos, and does not include any accessories.

EXTRAS INCLUDED:

  • Road case with casters
    • Dimensions: 40" x 14.5" x 24.75"

PHYSICAL CONDITION: Very Good- This vintage amp is in lovely condition, having a noticeable amount of cosmetic wear without dipping into any sort of meaningful damage to the unit.  The board the amp head is mounted to has some dings on the corners that show through to the wood, while the column cabinet has various nicks as well.

The grille cloth is discolored and spotty, though almost entirely free of tears. The "Ampeg" logo is missing from the front of the cabinet. Save from corner wear and set-in dust, the tolex is in superb shape. Fantastic amp through and through!

The included road case is in wonderful physical condition, very clean and with only mild bumps and marks.

WORKING CONDITION: Good - Full bodied bass tone that will rumble your socks off! Smooth, yet beefy bass tones all day! Control knobs are all in perfect working condition, every channel works perfectly as well. The only issue with this amp is the speaker. While playing bass through the amp at higher volumes, or with setting the bass turned above half-way, the speaker starts to flub out. With more controlled playing or lower volumes, this is barely heard. When playing at rehearsal or live volume, or while recording, this could present an issue as it sounds like the speaker needs to be repaired or replaced.   Overall, working condition is Good, but with a speaker repair or new speaker, it would be beyond excellent!
