When an amp is cleverly designed, it will stand the test of time. And the Assemblage ST-40 amp you see here is one such amp. Powered by four EL34 tubes, it produces 40W per channel. But what a beauty these 40W sounds! Compared to many other 40W tube amps, the ST-40 is a benchmark example (in our opinion) of getting the best sound out from EL34 tubes. The ST-40 had a rich warm sound that is absolutely be-witching. The highs were sweetly rolled off with the mids richly textured and almost “glowing” with warmth. The bass was deep with a nice taut reverberation that may not equal a solid state amp but it was still resoundingly strong enough when paired with the right speaker. Input tube is a single 12AX7/ECC83 tube which then passes through a pair of 12AU7/ECC82 tubes for the left and tight channel. For tube rollers, the ST-40 is heaven sent where you can experiment a whole slew of different power tubes and input tubes with a varying combinations of brands for a truly customized sound that is to your liking. As with any used tube gears, we always encourage getting a new set on standby. We stock EH EL34 tubes so if you want to get a new set of 4, pls contact us for a package price.
Cosmetically, the amp is in very nice shape. Minor scuff marks here and there but nothing major. Some wear on the wordings but you can still make out most of it. Amp will be securely packed for safe shipping.
