The amplifier pictured is the actual amp you will receive!
At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.
This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your amplifier was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without the care that it, and you, deserve.
This Sound Projects Company R400B electric guitar amplifier was made in 1960 in Cicero, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. It has the original 1 x 10 Quincy alnico speaker, original knobs, all resistors, coupling capacitors and power transformers are original, and has all vintage RCA tubes.
The output transformer was upgraded with a newer "Chicago Iron" output transformer. All of the original 1959 Mallory electrolytic capacitors have been expertly gutted and new Sprauge caps have been placed inside. The original Dumont 3x20uf can cap has been repaced with a new 3x20uf can cap. The original gray/white covering on the amp has been painted black.
This vintage amp sounds awesome and is a rare find!
Sound Projects Company had factories in Chicago, Illinois, Cicero, Illinois and Venice, Florida. They made amps with the Lectrolab label on them as well, and often were identical to the Sound Projects Company models.
At The Music Farm, we take quality seriously! That is why we have our in-house technicians do a multi-point inspection on each product, ensuring that it'll be ready to plug and play!
