About This Listing

Personal collection and yes, rare as hen's teeth. Priced a bit more then chicken ivory due to its scarcity and potential for tone godliness. Good condition with scratches and rust throughout, operates 100%. Missing rack ears. About the unit: Designed by John McIntyre, who has been modifying and building guitar amplifiers for years. His articles in Guitar Player magazine on amplification mods have set standards in tone excellence. Actodyne General Inc. has teamed up with John to create a line of amplifiers based on his original "Bluesmaker" series. Designed for the guitarist, who demands tonal variations not found on conventional low powered amplifiers. The Bluesmaker MKII is a masterpiece of complex tone voicings with radical new tone complexity in the midrange area. Long known for guitar tone enhancement, designer John McIntyre has designed new proprietary tone circuitry that is cutting edge vacuum technology. You can make your guitar feed back even at low levels. The key to great tone is having great power tube distortion. The Bluesmaker MKII provides great power tube distortion at volume levels that won't make your head cave in. This makes the amp perfect for home studio, or apartment playing.
