Item specifics

Country/Region of Manufacture: United States  

1964 Epiphone Zephyr EA-15RVT

This particular model version, featuring a 15 inch Jensen Special Design loudspeaker and 8 tubes, is quite rare and was made for 1 year only. (Model EA-15RVT was made for 2 years previously with a 12 inch loudspeaker and 7 tubes.)
FUNKY Original Tolex is in very good condition with few scars, and apparently original grill cloth is surprisingly intact.
fat warm sound from the Jensen C-15R loudspeaker and push pull 6V6GT output tubes.
Deep reverb and
intense vintage tremolo for channel 2.
The footswitch has very long cord and works fine.

This amp really puts out some loudness at the half way mark and it wasn't cranked any higher than that.
Point to point wiring appears original except for new High Voltage filter caps (see pics.)
There is a little low level hum which is typical of many older tube amps and is reduced by utilizing the Polarity switch and might be reduced further with a grounded plug, signal wiring reroutes, or other minor repairs to the mostly factory circuit components., might have been a local source here.

Original footswitch works great and has good cable and looks good.

The size of the cabinet is 22 inches tall and 22 inches wide.

    Two channels
