Up for Sale is a
 Valco / Montgomery Ward / Airline Model 95171 Tube Head!

Vintage 1960's! Made In USA!

This is really cool. You are looking at a very rare Vintage 1960's era Valco / Montgomery Ward Model 95171 Tube Amp Head. This 40 Watt all Tube Amp ROCKS! One of the best sounding amps I have ever played through. 2-Channel amp with an unbelievable Reverb & Tremolo Channel. Super long decay Reverb. If you are into the "Dick Dale" Surf Guitar Sound, this is for you. It comes with panel lights built-in and is really quite a sight at night with the house lights dimmer. The Reverb and Tremolo built into this amp is outstanding.

Tone, Tone, Tone. This Amp delivers all the goods. 40 Watts is plenty of power to gig with. Blues, Rock or Surf this amp will get the job done. Breaks up nicely at 5 better at 7 and sounds great dimed out at 11! Gets VERY LOUD!

Valco closed their doors in 1968. This is one of the last Valco designs built. Shortly after, Valco was acquired by Kay and eventually the Chicago factory shut down. 
 They were in business from 1940 to 1968. Very ahead of their time. They supplied several manufacturers with both guitar and amplifiers. Their Engineering was really top notch.

What I like about it is it is a "Real" Amp that you can play out with. Not just a recording amp.

Everything functions and works fine. Our Amp Tech gave this a major service. All brand new JJ Power Tubes. All Original Amp. Gig Ready on Arrival. You will not have to spend any additional monies on this amp.

Point To Point Hand Wiring!

Weight: 31.00 lbs.

Rare and Collectable! Best of Both Worlds. This is an amp you can really use that will continue to appreciate in value over time.

Affordable USA Vintage Tube Amp!

Cosmetics: Good Condition. There are some scuffs and scratches and some minor tears in the tolex. The Instrument Control Bezel in great shape. All lettering is still legible. Overall, good condition. Look at the pictures closely. They will tell the story.
