SILENT AUCTION PREVIEW

SECTION I

GUITARS AND ACCESSORIES



ITEM #1019 - Mesa Boogie Trem-O-Verb Dual Rectifier
(donated by Richard and Pauline Patt)

Super desirable, hard-to-find vintage amplifier! 
Mesa Boogie Trem-O-Verb Dual Rectifier.  100 watts, with half-power switch.  Two 12-inch Celestion Vintage 30s.  Reverb, tremolo.  This amp is LOUD. 

Yup, big and heavy but moves easily on heavy duty caster system.
*Note repaired tear in speaker cover cloth. Otherwise no problems!
Incredibly versatile.
Delivers not only the spectrum of British and Metal tones one would expect from the maker, but includes dedicated Vintage and Classic channels for a breadth of classic blues tones as well.
All the power and volume you could ever ask for with an apparent endless array of choices to sculpt your personally crafted sounds!

The Tremoverb majors in the Blues. It's the civilized sibling to its armor-plated Biker Brother the Recto Head. But don't be fooled by its softer exterior: underneath lurks all the same deviant behavior plus a bag of  tricks and a mode called Blues.
Picture a voice of velvet and leather. Rich tube Reverb hangs like smoke in the background...
tremolo pulses gently like a distant siren in the city dawn, after the rain
WAIT - STOP! But seriously: Big, HUGE notes. If we seem enthusiastic, it's because this is the most awesome big amp we make.
At the infamous Guitar Player Amp Summit of 1994, we  were impressed (as were the magazines's top reviewers) that the T-verb copped the major juju of amps as diverse as the Vibro-King and the AC-30 in a field of 28 hundred watt contenders - including ones costing up to four times as much. and then went on to produce unique sounds all its own  which none of the others could replicate.
Channel CloningTM, Dual selectable Rectifiers and ALL the juicy features of the RectoSolo Head are included in the Tremo-O-Verb, plus dedicated Reverb and auto-assignable Tremolo per channel.
The perfect tone match for all this power and flexibility are the Vintage 30's we get - specially selected by agreement with Celestion. Choose the bodacious 2x12 combo or the convenient head stacked on either the Recto 2x12 or 4x12 cabinets.
Go further and have your T-Verb custom tailored using one-of-a-kind suede and leather finishes including embossed textures representing gators, crocs, snakes and lizards. This amp is the pinnacle of Retro-Tech, combining a vintage nature with modern capabilities.
