Here is a vintage 1966 Ampeg B-15-NC (B15N) Portaflex electric bass guitar amplifier. This particular example, serial number 003761, is in very nice original condition and come with a non-original vinyl cover. The Ampeg B-15N is considered the ultimate in bass amplification, and this happens to be a particularly excellent sounding example. It has been recently serviced, and is in studio-ready shape. A standard in any studio, this is also a must have for most bass players.
Serial Number: 003761
Speaker Date Code: 465-642 (Oxford 15MS68)
The blue diamond tolex exterior is in nice condition and only exhibits a few expected scuffs and tears. The silver/black grill cloth retains perfect structural integrity along with only minimal fading. With enough mojo to feel comfortable leaving it exposed in your recording or practice space, yet in good enough condition to still impress, this is a great example for the vintage enthusiast and player. All of the original tubes are branded with Tung-Sol logos (aside from the original 5AR4) and have date codes consistent with a ’65 production and subsequent ’66 assembly.
The amp includes the original dolly, which is in comparable excellent cosmetic condition as the amp itself. The amp includes a non-original cover, which has effectively protected it for the last 30+ years. All of the hardware which has since been upgraded is also included.
