Up for auction is an excellent working vintage Bogen Tube Amplifier, Presto Model VP 10 in wonderful condition! All of the tubes work and are included…
The front panel features separate Volume Control knobs for Microphone and Phono inputs, plus separate controls for Bass and Treble. There’s also a 1/4″ Mic (Guitar) input and an RCA Speaker output on the front, as well as a Phono input on top of the chassis. This amplifier sounds amazing (really)! We used a microphone and a guitar to test the 1/4″ input, and a CD player to test the phono input with an 8 Ohm speaker for output. All inputs and controls work smoothly and quietly as they should. I couldn’t get over how this great amplifier sounds (it’s VERY loud for only 10 watts, rattles the windows)! It has a surprisingly smooth vintage tone with excellent detail! There’s no background hum or hiss and the transformers and capacitors all stayed nice and cool during our testing. The chassis is also in excellent shape as you can see in the pictures. All you need is a speaker and you’re ready to go! It includes the bottom cover and measures approximately 13 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and weighs about 12lbs.unpacked. Buy it now on eBay!
All tube amplifiers are brought up to full power slowly with a variac to avoid damage and to reform the capacitors. Although I test them to the best of my ability, I am not an expert! When purchasing vintage items you should expect that some may need work and remember that the warranty ran out on our items decades ago! By bidding on my auctions YOU AGREE THAT… YOU ARE BUYING THIS ITEM AS IS AS SHOWN FOR PARTS AND RESTORATION with NO GUARANTEES EXPRESSED, GIVEN OR IMPLIED AND NO RETURNS ACCEPTED FOR ANY REASON AT ANY TIME WITHOUT EXCEPTION.
