Very cool, I wonder what the "Black Shadow" speaker actually is- a K120? D120? I didn't know they were doing the Black Shadow relabeling that early in the company.

That's a nice one. It's a 1976. That crappy speaker in it is a replacement Celestion from the 90's. Mesa whored the Black Shadow name out after EV's Musical Instrument Speaker division went belly up.

A 60 watt with EQ and Verb' that old is a nice find.

Guess I could have told from the front it wasn't a 120.

Black Shadow has been EV, Eminence, Celestion- anything that goes in a Boogie is apparently a "Black Shadow"
