Here's a rare gem from Maton. It's a Maton Mastersound STB75 Super Twin Bass and Guitar Amplifier. Maton made (or at least marketed) amplifiers from the late '50s until 1974, and I assume this amp would date from the last few years. Output valves are a pair of 6DQ6Bs, with 3 12AX7s doing the preamp and splitter/driver duties.

You can download the pdf information sheet on this amplifier directly from the Maton website by clicking here.

The amp shows some gigging wear, and the back panel lower corners have some damage from hamfisted removal in the past (see the pics in the 'More Pictures' link below), but overall the amp is in surprisingly good and original condition. The three (yes, three!) Rola Plessey C12P speakers are mint.

A great sounding amp with plenty of cool visual presence.

Head measures 52cm(W) x 22cm(H) x 31cm(D) and weighs 13kg, while the box measures 100cm(H) x 58cm(W) x 30cm(D) and weighs 28kg, and the items would be shipped with cardboard protecion taped over the front of the bin and front and rear of the head, but with other surfaces exposed (to minimise shipping costs due to item size growing with unnecessary cardboard or other padding).
