—————————————————————

1974 Sound City Mark 4. I am used to playing old Ampeg and Sunn tube amps mostly. The Sound City was rounder, full, more balanced and had richer midrange and mid-highs. Definitely in Orange/Marshall territory.

This amp is hard to drive without a pedal. Jumpering channels will get some (emphasis some*) grit and crunch from it. Without a drive or fuzz pedal it’s just a huge headroom clean amp, similar to the Sunns of yesteryear. It worked very well and could ‘sing’ with my Rat Pedal.

The tonestack is active, meaning you can turn the normal or brilliant channel volume up and not hear anything. The bass, middle, treble, presence must be turned up to desired tone then raising the volume knob with this will put out volume/sound depending on how much you want to annoy the neighbors. Can get loud. 120W RMS

This amp was serviced by Beamish Electronics in Cleveland. A faulty pre amp tube was replaced, new pots, and had a once-over. While servicing the tech had it short on him once. He then kept it on for 12 hours+ daily for the next week or so and had no issues or noises. I have not had any issues with it.

Power tubes are (6) newer JJ’s and preamps (5) and phase inverter are Marshall. There is a master volume knob mod on the back previous owner had installed. It is where the reverb unit input on back would have been. Original Partridge Transformers. Keep on 115V for US voltage. Sound city name badge not on amp

4, 8 and 16ohm outputs. Prong removes to reinsert and change speaker input resistance, it is not a knob.

Overall a great amp.

Sold as is due to age.
