Bought this 1962 Premier Twin 8 Amp from a nice guy in January 2012 who was clearing up his aunt's estate. It sat in a closet for 50 year after being played once. Dent in the lovely gold foil is from the butt end of the 1962 Argonne AR-54 microphone that was stuck between the foil front and the wall for half a century. Love the Eddie Munster hairline front grill he says, dating himself.
Had to replace the tremolo 12AX7, amp sounds fabulous. Bass is much tighter than I would have guessed. The amp has a gorgeous upper end chime. There is no doubt this version looks a lot better than the later cube versions and it sounds better too, imho. Works great with a guitar and is highly regarded for harmonica.
Did you like this amp? Would you like to see 100 nice large photos of clean 1960s Teisco, Kingston, Harmony, Noble, Zim-Gar, Airline, Audition guitars, plus some amps?
How about 5 SS-4Ls, 1967 Harmony Rocket serial #0001H59 (yep, the first 3 pickup version in 1967), Teisco May Queen with the only original case you will likely ever see and others?

I got really tired of wanting to look at non-Gibson/Fender guitars and only being able to find 10k ratbag mini-pics, so I took higher res pictures of mine and put them up so others would have a place to go. There are infinitely better collections, but it is what I can contribute. I hope others will do the same wherever they can. The Internet lives, storage is cheap - dump the mini-pics! Help out, show the world your gems in screen filling glory. My photos are being upgraded further as time allows.
