In the late 1940s, Magna amp company in Los Angeles was one of Leo Fender’s major competitors, especially among jazz and western swing bands. This is the early version ‘model M192’ Troubador with the chassis mounted at the bottom of the cabinet, at a time performers usually sat or stood behind their amp. Hand wired with 3 inputs, a 65N7 preamp, 6N7 phase inverter and a pair of 6V6 power tubes with 5Y3 tube rectifier, delivering about 15 watts, this is a well made and robust traditional valve amp. In 2010 the amp underwent a full service and restoration. The cabinet was restored with NOS leatherette and NOS grill cloth and a Weber 12” Classic Alnico speaker fitted. A classic restored and reliable amp with a big rich voice and, on higher volume settings, complex overdrive and sustain characteristics.
