While they were considered a "student" brand at the time of their production in the '50s and '60s, Harmony guitars and amps have become vintage favorites thanks to modern players from Jack White to St. Vincent. With a clear demand for more of these retro gems, BandLab Technologies purchased the Harmony brand in late 2017 with the intent to relaunch.

In June 2019, the first new Harmony guitars—the Silhouette, Rebel, and Jupiter—marked the full return of the brand. Today, we're getting our first taste of the rebooted amplifier line, with the return of the 8414 Combo, a retro-tastic amp revived—and found exclusively on Reverb in a limited-edition run of 150 amps.

In our video above, Andy puts the throwback combo to the test. This little guy comes with a 6" Jensen speaker, five watts, and single knob for volume. It's a classy epitome of that easy, plug-and-play aesthetic for practice or low-volume jams.

However, this isn't just any old bedroom amp. The 8418 is a limited-edition run sporting a custom tolex finish and custom tweed grill with graphic. For the amp connoisseurs in the audience, point-to-point wiring, easily replaceable fuse, and true NOS tubes from the '50s, much like the ones used in the original, are in play in this reissue.

Watch the demo above to hear the 8418 in action. And order yours exclusively on Reverb here.
