Cranked up and miked, these amps sound like a 50-watt Marshall. Most Fender amplifiers come with two to four power tubes and operate in Class AB mode.
This means the amp comes with a phase inverter tube (usually a 12AX7) that oscillates the power between the two power tubes, or two pairs of power tubes in high watt amps.
Amp just thoroughly serviced, grounded cord added.... A rare find as these higher watt 50's Fenders were expensive in the day.
This one has that high power twin tone like Keith's.
Tom Jennings and Dick Denney, the creator of Vox amps, utilize Class A in most of the British made Vox AC line.
