    Monster, sweet amp. Maybe the sweetest I ever played. Have mine for sale… sigh. Got laid off… sigh. Altec Lansing speakers and Anvil Road case. used to belong to Sons of Champlin (Bill Champlin of Chicago fame) and their name can just barely be made out in the faded writing on the side of the road case. (Contact me if interested: goofpod gmail com) Northern CA SF Bay Area.

    Every time I play this amp, I have to stop and jerk off for awhile. The “creamy sound” brings out “the cream” sorta speak. The best was when I was playing through, while I was ramming my kok up my girl’s azzwhole. She loved it, the kok, the bass, unreal!

      I don’t understand this post at all. Owned mine for two decades + and played big gigs with less than all tubes firing. This baby NEVER let me down…

      Hi,
      I have a beautiful 1972 Super Six Reverb (parts and chassis dated ’71) that I will be selling soon. One of the first ones made apparently judging from the manufacturers stamps on the components. I don’t see many 1972’s still around.
      All original chassis, transformers, power supply, speakers, 12ax7 (the little tubes) which are RCA and has those metal covers still on them. Great condition. The 4 6L6GC tubes are being replaced by 4 matching hi-end vintage (expensive) Russian military grade cryogenic 6L6GC tubes (an upgrade). No rips in grill cover. Cab in surprisingly good condition. The sound is beautiful, and she’s quiet when turned on. Loud and clear played. I’m in Burbank, CA though. Asking 1800.00 obo. Gonna put it on ebay and craigslist soon. Just thought I’d put it out there. Anyone interested, please email me with “72 Super Six” in subject line.  st_ill_james@yahoo.com     Thx!

        Another interesting piece of trivia about the 72 super six I wanted to mention (purely for fun).  I bought this from an English guy, young guitarist and on the top of the cabinet, someone had taped the name “Marr” on it (a long time ago from the condition of the tape). I looked up that name and there was a pretty big guitarist in the UK called Johnny Marr (who from what I gather, plays Fenders).  Just some fun trivia. (I removed the tape.  Sacrilege to tape a beautiful Fender cab IMO)  : )

         Thanks for the post but my interest is a bit more modest than the asking price. Somewhere between  500-1200 ,depending on condition, lies the magic number for me.

          I’ve got a 72 (manufacture date nov. 71) super six reverb in mint condition. It had been unused for many years before I got it at an estate sale, so it’s basically in as good of condition as the day it was manufactured. I had my tech go through it and everything is original and in great working order down to the tubes. It even came with the original vinyl cover and casters and what not. I’ve got so many amps, that this one just sits unused. I’d let it go for around 1100. If anyone is interested and wants pics let me know. Thanks
