I'm selling a very unique amp. It's made by Phaez amps, who are mainly known for a small-watt Trainwreck-style amp. This was a custom build for the prior owner. It's essentially an Alembic preamp (which is in turn a Fender Twin/Showman preamp) into a Hiwatt-type power section. It was built to get at David Gilmour's giant clean tones, but thought it might also appeal to folks in these parts.

*3 12ax7 preamp tubes

*2xKT77 tubes in the power section (a very smooth, high-headroom tube)

*It has one giant transformer in the center (see pics)

*The other transformer is a toroidal transformer, which offers amazing bandwidth (often used in organs for that reason)

*It has a nice range of tone controls. In addition to the standard bass/mid/treble/presence controls, there is a very effective bass cut and bright switch.

*It has speaker outputs for 4, 8, and 16 ohms, plus a line out.

It's entirely hand-wired and in great shape. Pics are below, but shoot me any questions.

I'm selling for $750 shipped and paypalled.
