1940s vintage H&H valve amplifier1940s H&H portable valve amplifier - what an amazing old amp. And it works! In fact, it sounds damn good! - went to Mick

old valve amp head1940s Aussie(?) valve amp head - this thing sounds cool! Ideal for harp or super-grungy old-school electric guitar. Probably only 5 or 6 watts, so it sure won't blow your quadbox! - went to Indra

1951 Fender Pro Amp1951 Fender Pro Amp - Here's a fantastic TV-front vintage Fender amp from the golden period. Loads of street cred, buckets of vintage tone from the field coil 15" Jensen, and a truly grouse investment - went to Bill

1950s/60s 1x12" speaker box - Here's a pretty cool speaker box with a low-powered Sydney-made MFP Hi-Flux 12" speaker, perfect for getting the best vintage tone from very low-powered (around 5 watts) valve amplifier heads - went to Daniel

vintage Magnatone guitar amp1950s Magnatone Model M-197-3-V class-A 6V6 amp - is this the coolest amp you ever saw? Awesome condition, awesome vintage tone, awesome originality, right down to its faux alligator-skin tolex and Jensen speaker! - went to Murray

1955 Australian 10 watt amp - an incredibly charming amp which sounds amazingly good! Built (almost certainly in Sydney) in 1955, and possibly an extremely early Moody. - went to Jon

vintage Premier 120 tube amp1956 Premier 120 - what a classic! The ultimate harp amp? Little Walter's ghost lives in this baby! - selling for less than the price we paid - went to Tony

1957 Magnatone Custom 280 Double V amplifier 1957 Magnatone Custom 280 Double V - the legendary amp with true stereo vibrato. A very, very rare amp in amazing original condition. One of the world's best. 110 volt - went to a collector in Sydney

1958 Maton valve amp1958 (approx) Maton valve practice/studio amp, very rare and very sweet (looking and sounding!) amp in amazing collector-grade condition. Goes as well as it looks, with tons of great vintage valve tone for practice or the studio. Why bother with a Fender® Champ® when we have homegrown tone like this? The smaller brother to the 1x12 version, with the same tolex, grille etc! - went to Martin

1958 Maton Mastersound vintage valve amp 1958 Maton Mastersound 15-watt EL-84 amp - How cool is this! The oldest Maton amp I've come across. Sounds great too, and complete with its original white-cone MSP speaker! Effectively an early Aussie single-channel AC-15 clone! - went to Derrick

This uses a pair of EL-34s (and an EF-86 pre-amp) to give some really great Aussie-flavoured British tone. We've just spent a heap on this beauty, and you have to hear it to believe it! - went as soon as it returned from our tech to a new owner in Sydney

Echoplex EP-11960/61 Echoplex EP-1 tape echo - this is one of the original Echoplexes, with a very low serial number suggesting 1960 or 1961 manufacture. Fully serviced, low mileage, a stunning example with sound to die for with its original 110volt all-valve circuitry - went to John

early 1960s JMI (Vox) Domino - a very rare, very basic, very cool amp putting out only about 5 glorious single-ended watts from the single EL-84 output. Valve rectifier, and super-cool 1960s British looks! Very collectable, very usable - went to Jon

Fisonic 4-channel PA ampearly 1960s Fisonic 4-channel PA amp head - How cool is this!!?? Want to put your guitar, vocal, accordion and bass through the one amp and speaker box?

Vase BGB80 Bassman amp early 1960s Vase BGB80 Bassman amp - this has to be one of the highest quality amps I've ever seen, and it's made here right here in Aus! Brisbane in fact. Vase amps were well-known for their build quality, and this extremely early version is no exception. Very powerful sounding 80 watts, and capable of great bass as well as shimmering highs. This amp uses a 12AU7, a 12AX7, a 7199 splitter, and two KT88/6550 output valves - went to Dean

1960s Vedette (ZJM) amp - a very rare and awesome-sounding 40-watt vintage Australian amp head made in Sydney in the 1960s (probably pre-'65). Fender® blackface circuitry with British-style EL-34 output and great transformers make this a point-to-point wired vintage tone BARGAIN! - went to Victor

Strauss Polka vintage valve amp 1960s Strauss Polka - a very conservative estimation of 120 watts from the 4x7027A output valves - 21 kilos of pure vintage Aussie amp muscle that will make a Marshall look like a wimp! And it has tone you wouldn't believe! - went to Martin

1960s Electravox 408R - a badge-engineered version of the Vadis 408R, which confirms my suspicion of a strong link between the two iconic '60s Sydney brands. Fully serviced, re-valved and re-capped. A superb amp - went to Daniel

1960s Rex Mascot - I've had two of these through here before, and they both sold instantly. Very highly sought for recording (and home recording) are these single-ended true Class-A few watts of vintage Aussie tone! - went to Stu

1960s Vadis 601 with matching quad box - a great example of an iconic vintage Australian (Sydney-built) guitar amplifier. The 601 is a great amp, with good spring reverb and the best tremolo you will ever hear! Very cool, very usable - went to Peter

1960s Rex BA50 50 watt 2x12 speaker cab - a mint, virtually New Old Stock, vintage 2x12 speaker cab for your 40 or 50 watt vintage valve head. Two original vintage 8-ohm MSP speakers wired in parallel to give a 4 ohm load, but if you prefer I can re-wire them in series to present a 16 ohm load. Very cool, very usable - went to Tony

1960s Goldentone 1746 40-watt Bassmaster - Goldentones are probably the most well-known of the range of Australian vintage valve amps, and they are finally getting the respect they deserve, as collectors and musicians alike snap them up. This is a rough-looking but very healthy and toneful bass amp, with the head just back from a service - went to Chris

1960s Vadis 409 with trem and reverb - I have always been a huge fan of Vadis amps, despite their rather plain-Jane looks, and gig them regularly. This valve-rectified 6CA7 (EL34) amp puts out around 40 watts into the 2x12 (Alnico Rolas!) sealed-back box for absolutely heaven-sent vintage Aussie tone!. - went to Andrew

1960s Goldentone with trem and reverb - a delightful early Goldentone amp pushing out a little under 10 watts from its two 6GW8 valves into the original 12" Hi-flux speaker. This was only ever used by a little old lady for her electronic organ - yes a genuine 'only-driven-to-church-on-Sundays-by-a-little-old-lady' amp! Dead collectable, original and delightful with its tremolo and reverb. - went to Chris

1960s Rex Mascot - these very cool Australian (Melbourne-made) amps put out only about 3 or 4 single-ended watts from the single 6BQ5 output valve, but have become an icon for recording studios. Very original, very collectable, very usable - went to Tony

vintage Electravox class A valve ampVery interesting 1960s single-ended Class-A 'baby' amp made by Goldentone but badged Electravox! A very original and unmolested example of an early Aussie student or practice amp. Beautiful single-ended class-A tone from its single 6GW8 valve. Original 8" Alnico speaker - went to Martin

1960s Vadis BR20 amp1960s Vadis BR20 1x12" combo - a perfect amp for the home studio, with creamy valve overtone from the cathode-biased 6CA7 output stages feeding into a vintage Rola 12PEG Alnico speaker - went to Daniel

Vadis speaker box 1960s Vadis 3x12 Alnico speaker box - a great sounding vintage Aussie speaker box with three 15ohm 12inch Alnico speakers (I think they're Rolas). 5 ohm impedance, and sounds great for either bass or guitar - went to Glenn

vintage Eminar Celestion 18 inch box1960s Eminar bass box loaded with original vintage Celestion 18" speaker! - this is a very early Eminar item, probably the earliest I've ever come across. Unbelievable home-use-only condition, and the original HUGE 18 inch Celestion is as fresh as the day it was made. 65 watt power handling and 16ohm impedance makes it perfect for a wide range of vintage valve heads. Great for bass, organ or guitar use! - went to Tony

1963 Watkins Scout amplifier - Now this is COOL! A British 2xEL84 amplifier (like a Vox AC-15) with 2 channels and delightful tremolo on channel 1.
