A piece of tonal history sitting right in front. of us. Damn! This Magnatone was one of the premium amplifiers of the late 1950's.

The Model 280 was Magnatone's two channel 50 watt amp (we've got a Model 260 as well...check that one out on our store also!)  The 280 is a true tone machine. And don't forget that super groovy iconic four varistor Magnatone vibrato. This thing is just sweet.

This bad boy is ALL ORIGINAL (with the exception of a replaced AC cord and a replacement standby switch), including the two 12" Oxford Alnico speakers! 

This amp has a seen a club or three, and probably many studios. It has exterior wear consistent with an amp that's seen the ins and outs of the topsy-turvy world of rock n' roll.  

However our amp tech here at EMS has given it a once over to make sure everything is in tip-top shape and ready to rock. They replaced the filter caps and tested everything. It's ready for stage or studio.

We'll ship it to you safely and securely. Feel free to give us a call with any questions you may have about it!
