It's always a pleasure getting to plug into a piece of history. This Magnatone was one of the premium amplifiers of the late 1950's.

The 260 was Magnatone's two channel 35watt amp, each channel using a 12AX7 gain stage followed by "volume", "treble", and "bass" controls in a Baxandall arrangement. The 260A model saw some small circuit changes, including the addition of a "mellow" / "normal" switch.

This bad boy is ALL ORIGINAL (with the exception of a replaced AC cord), from the two 12" Oxford Alnico speakers, to the footswitch, and don't forget that super groovy iconic four varistor Magnatone vibrato. This thing is just sweet.

This amp unsurprisingly shows signs of use, but is in remarkable condition considering its age. 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. We'll ship it to you safely and securely along with its original slip cover. Feel free to give us a call with any questions you may have about it!
