Kalamazoo Model Two Model Tube Amplifier (1966), made in Kalamazoo, Michigan, serial # 25466, black tolex covering finish.
Height is 15 1/2 in. (39.4 cm.), 13 3/4 in. (34.9 cm.) width, and 7 in. (17.8 cm.) deep. This little Kalamazoo may have been at the bottom of Gibson's product line in 1966 but today represent a nice value in a small well-engineered tube amp. Still, they were made to a price, so some of the internal components do not age well. While we usually work to preserve vintage pieces as designed, this model definitely benefits from having components tweaked to better quality replacements. This example has had a grounded cord added and number of circuitry upgrades improve clarity, response and the tonal muscle as well as to reduce noise and hum, which as built these are quite prone to. The amp has also had a speaker upgrade, and is now equipped with a vintage Oxford that has been freshly reconed by Weber. This is now a great sounding little unit, and externally quite clean with some fairly minor wear and a nice bargain in a small vintage tube combo. Generally Excellent Condition.
