About This Listing

Great sounding amp in beautiful red tolex. The amp was special ordered by original owner 10 years ago from the original shop (not from Boutique Amplifier Distributors). The panel has both lo and hi inputs which works great if you’re going to switch between humbuckers and single coils. This version of the RCA35 has been discontinued because they are only making them with reverb now. If you appreciate a purer signal path of a non-reverb amp then this one is for you.

The amp works without issue and the tolex is in excellent shape with no lifting, scrapes or tears save for several small holes on the bottom of the amp (see pics) because the original owner thought it would be a good idea to install casters. The holes never bothered me because you couldn’t see them and the amp’s tone more than made up for them. I tried a lot of different speakers with the amp and settled in on an AllTone speaker.

From a sonic standpoint, the amp really shines at copping nice Blackface as well as Voxy tones depending on the EQ.

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The Morgan RCA35was designed around a special output transformer that is equally happy with 6L6s or 6V6s or EL34s or KT66s or KT77s or 6CA7s. The RCA35’s unique design allows any of these tubes to be swapped in. Simply choose a matched pair and just plug and play. The Cathode Bias design allows you to swap power tubes without the need for rebiasing. The RCA35 has a black face style tone stack. The Bass, Mid, and Treb controls give you a wide range of tones. Do not be afraid to use extreme settings on the tone controls, they are designed to give you the most dramatic swings available to allow you to go from clean and glassy like an EL84 class A amp to thick and grindy like the best plexi you have ever heard. The Midrange control on this amp is special. It is designed to behave normally until about the 9 o’clock position on dial, from that point on you will be adding gain along with your midrange giving you a completely different feel and growl. The Master volume on this amp is similar to the ones used in The SW series of Morgan Amps. Once the master volume is over the 2 o’clock position it will start adding gain to the power section of the amp. This amp is a Swiss Army knife. With the ability to swap output tubes at will and the extreme tone controls it is a perfect for the studio or the guitar player that likes to change his rig every week. You can see the RCA35 on the road with The Band Perry, Kip Moore, Billy Currington and Cher Lloyd. Handwired in the USA.
