About This Listing

We are official Magnatone dealers! Comes new with warranty.

This 15 watt Combo has a point-to-point wired circuit powered by a pair of EL84 power tubes driving a single 12” speaker. Simple, elegant, and expertly made, the Varsity excels at delivering rich harmonics, surprising headroom, and overdrive to die for, all in a compact modern package. A negative feedback switch allows for the amp to have more compression, break up, and sizzle when engaged, or sound fuller and bolder in the opposite position.

The Cathedral Front design with segmented grillcloth has a distinctive Art Deco appeal, with black textured tolex, leather handle, and vintage-inspired silkscreened faceplate with white chicken head knobs.
