JWN Amps Hammond 6L6 [Expired]


no longer for sale

Up for sale is my custom 6L6 stereo tube power amp made by Jim Nichols. 

I had this amp made a few years ago via a series of email chats with Jim.  The following are the main points from him:

1.) The chassis is from a Hammond organ.
2.) This amp will run 6L6, 6V6, EL34, and similar power tubes.
3.) 12AU7 and 6SN7 tubes are also used.
4.) Power is 30-35 wpc max (less with lower power tubes).
5.) It has a switch for rectification - SS vs. tube.

The good news is that the amp sounds great and is extremely versatile.  It looks a little funky but if that doesn't bother you, you can get a VERY nice tube sound from just about any set of speakers.  My favorite tubes in it have been the same JJ 6L6's I fell in love with before I bought this amp.  Before I packed it up, it was driving my Fritz Carbon 7 monitors (also for sale) in what I consider to be a perfect package. 

The bad news is that this amp has been blowing fuses on me since the last hurricane swept through.  (This is where the 5/10 condition comes from.)  I'm going through a divorce at the moment so getting the amp fixed is a low priority. 

Cosmetically, the amp is in great shape.  The front power light works and the chassis paint is pretty much perfect.  Jim used a lot of good older parts (tube sockets, trannies, etc.) so the amp has a decidedly "retro" look to it.

I paid $950 new for the amp but I am looking to let it go for $400.  At that price, I can work with the buyer to include a nice set of tubes for when it's working again.
