    National 6422TR

    I found this amp in my girlfriend's basement. She said it doesn't work but actually it just needs a new reverb tank. The old one is made of cardboard which is falling apart.

    Great sounding amp. I love the lower wattage amps, great to gig with, just mic them in front and back. No pedals needed for overdrive.

    Too cool! The amp in that video sounds great! I wonder what else might be lurking in the basement?

    There was an Akai AX-80 Synth down there. But that doesn't work either

    If the amp hasn't been used for a significant period of time you should be wary about powering it up, the filter capacitors will likely need to be re-formed or replaced and powering it up without doing this first could cause further damage (the fusing on some older amps can sometimes leave something to be desired so you shouldn't automatically assume the fuse will protect it in the event of leaky or shorted filter caps!).

    Thanks! Got my amp back. Swapped out the old reverb tank and original power cord and replaced one pot.Sounds great now!
