Ask About This Product

This 1960's Teisco is a super-cool throwback to the 1960's Garage Rock sound. It has a very cool sound reminiscent of the Kinks or the Animals, and is a really fun alternative to modern bedroom practice amps. Perfect for recording projects or just plucking around with at home. 

Featuring a very hip-sounding tremolo circuit, but the reverb has been disabled and the reverb control modded to control a fuzzy distortion with a nice midrange growl. 

Aside from the modifications, everything on the amp is original. All electronics are tested and working.
