FS: 1969 Sunn Sorado Tube Amp Head

Recommended Posts

on ebay, ends 10/12



Simple straightforward hand wired tube power from 1969. The Sorado is a single channel amp with 2 inputs and 5 controls: volume, bass, treble, hi and lo boost switches. The amp was originally designed as bass amp, but can be used as a very nice clean guitar amp. The amp is in excellent, may i repeat, EXCELLENT condition. The original grill cloth has no tears and no stains, the original grill cloth is nearly perfect with only a few very small scuffs and cuts on the edges, the original logo only has a small scratch on it, the original knobs are in great condition, the original handle is intact and in good shape, the faceplate only shows some dirt from usage, and all of the switches are in good working order and the pilot lamp is functional. The amp has been fitted with a pair of Shuguang Premium KT100's, one Shuguang Premium 12AX7B, the original RCA 6NA8A, and a Weber Copper Cap Recitifer WS1. This can power one 8 ohm cab, one 4 ohm cab, or two 8 ohm cabs. The original two prong power cord has been replaced with a three prong, thus eliminating the need for the polarity switch. This amp is very conservatively rated at 60 watts. It is very loud!


A little history on the Sorado: Introduced in 68 to replace to Sonic II, both amps are essentially the same as the 200S. By 1969, the Sorado was fitted with 6550s.
