Vintage Magnatone Lap Steele and Matching Student Model M199-3-J Combo Guitar Amplifier
Magnatone Student Model M199-3-J combo with matching Lap Steele Guitar. This vintage tube amp is a 1 x 8 combo with a matching Oxblood-ish mother of toilet seat covering. All tube circuitry with around 5 watts output. It has a clean and sweet sound available at lower volume, awesome for practice at home or studio use so that you can get good sounds out of it at lower levels. This unit was hand built in the USA, is in surprisingly nice condition for its age and sounds great!
From 1947 to 1952 amplifier production at Magna centered around 5 watt and 10 watt steel guitar amplifiers. A lot of the early models were finished with mother of pearl plastic that matched a Magnatone build steel guitar. The guitar and amp were often sold as a set, but they could be bough individually as well. Colors changed, but blue and black were most popular.
The amp has a newer three prong power cord installed for extra safety.
