This is a Smith Custom Amplifiers CS15. This is the very first head Sam Smith put out in this model, and as far as I know, it's the only one. It was built in May-June 2015 and I took possession in July 2015. 
I also own the very first CS25 head produced (built in 2006). These are fabulous boutique amps that are very well respected among the Nashville players. The amp has very low hours on it and it has never been gigged, so I am going to call it mint condition.  It has JJ 6v6s and a 5V3 rectifier. The front panel is interesting in that you have two channels, a Normal and a Mic channel. Each channel has a mini toggle that gives different voicings based on differences in biasing. Each channel has three voices, one normal voice and two biased voices. If you consider that you can combine the Normal and Mic channels, and then use the variations of each channels toggle, you get nine more variations in tone. A total of 15 different tone settings based on the two channels and the bias mini-toggles. So although the front panel looks pretty Spartan, there is a lot of tweak-ability. I really found both channels combined to be an awesome setting and gave the most headroom.   Please note that the amp is 8 ohm only
