So what's all this 'pre-Rola' stuff about? :mrgreen:

The plethora of pics for a 4000 pound amp is dizzying....... :o

The amp is good other than a replaced driver. It's a rare early one, all there and I have a spare 652 with the gold label.

Off to the races.
When only pinstripe will do.

Did you buy it?

Looks like it needs an 8 Ohm speaker...

Yes, I bought it. A very, very early example, as evidenced by, among other things, the plexiglass cover on the wooden footswitch (they used unpainted block logos) and the earliest combo lamp.

It's currently wired as 8ohm, with the replacement driver wired to the 8ohm taps on the OT. It would have originally had a T0652 at 15ohm, which is the standard for the early 1974's.

Altogether a very clean amp in good condition. Nice to have another with the slant logo in the corner. A rare amp indeed, I've not seen another.

Had your name all over it! I don't have that type of cash at the moment, just haemorrhaging it on other things :cry:

This listing was ended by the seller because there was an error in the listing.


Ahem, nothing like waving some big bills to get the seller's attention. :wink:

Yes, great score! Not too many of these amps around. :jam:
