Description
If you are looking at this listing you probably already know 2 things... this is very rare, and this is considered by many to be one of the top holy grails when it comes to amplifiers.  Hand built by Mark Sampson with the highest quality NOS available

30 watt, 2 channel, EL-34, Tube Rectified amp. You know who Mark is, he's the founder of BadCat and Matchless!

The name Mark Sampson and his amp builds are synonymous with *fantastic tone*. He is a master-mind of builds and these Star amps are highly sought after for their expert craftsmanship, and of course the sound! Not for sale very often as guitarist who have played these just do not get rid of them, they become their "go-to" amp. This is an all Class-A tube P-T-P design, SUPER clean tones, and out of this world gains. Mark built these amps exactly how he wished, without some corporate mucky-muck with a collar and tie second guessing his decisions, and the outcome is pure gold!

This amp sounds unlike anything else, it’s got huge blooming overtones that nothing else can touch. The gain channel is extremely Dumble like. This amp has no peers at this price!

 For those familiar with Mark's work you know exactly what we‚Äôre talking about. Shipping is priced accordingly, and includes full insurance, plus this is not a light amp... 65 lbs! A lot of reverb shops won't ship amps, or only ship CONUS... we are willing and able to ship this amp safely to anywhere around the globe. Great opportunity especially for international customers to get one of the finest amps made. See photos for visual details, there is unfortunately a tiny tear in one location of the grille cloth. (see last photo). Purchase also includes the original vinyl protection covering!
