1972 Mike Matthews Electro Harmonix Freedom Amp. One of the first battery powered amps. Gone over by our tech and works great. I admit I was not able to find a lot of info on this amp. I believe this was a DC version converted to AC at some point in it's life. It still has all the battery clips in it. I can not say I know all the changes to this amp. Speaker dates to 1971. Pot dates look like 1972 and 1973. Holds forty D cell batteries.

When you needed a portable amp back in the 70's, you had 2 choices: the Pignose, which put out a few watts of power or you could go the EH Freedom amp route, with 55W of battery-powered goodness.

The Freedom amp came about around 1972, blasting it's way into the musician's consciousness with the power of 55 watts into a single 10" heavy duty CTS speaker.
