Rickenbacker Professional Model Model Tube Amplifier, c. 1937, made in Los Angeles, black textured fabric finish.

This early Rickenbacker "Professional Model" amp was the company's largest and best all-around unit in the mid/late 1930s. This example shows some wear but still sings with a sweet and chiming sound, not an overdrive monster but with a lot of tonal color. The covering has some general wear and one of the back corners is missing some fabric. The amp is largely original including the speaker, transformers, handle, and knob with replaced newer power tubes and a 3-prong cord but no major internal alterations. A very playable and historic amp; a good example of the best of the very early units that started the electric revolution. Overall Very Good + Condition.
