Description

Don't miss your opportunity to own this ULTRA RARE amp regarded as the "Fender Champ on steroids" Handmade by the legendary Mark Sampson..... the brain behind Matchless and Bad Cat! Don't let the 5W fool you this small fella packs a ton of punch! The Star Nova features a 1x10 Celestion G10 speaker, all tube amplification, hand wired with PTP connections. These aren't made anymore and that's a shame, because Star amps are absolutely amazing..... Please listen to our embedded video below to get a better idea of what we are talking about. It uses a 6v6 in the power section and two 12ax7's in the preamp. It can be be used for recording thru the line out, the internal speaker can be unplugged and the amp can be used with headphones (built in 8ohm dummy load to protect the output circuit). It is perfect working condition and basically flawless cosmetically. A killer little amp that's extremely versatile, extremely rare, and will be a prized gem in any collection. Please feel free to message us if you have any questions. Have an awesome day.
