A Video Look At The Kent BA-170, A 1960s Bass Guitar Amp
About a month ago, I posted a short video about a vintage guitar amplifier that I had repaired, the Kent DR-57 amplifier head. In the beginning of that video, I showed both that amplifier and the one that this video is about. I edited this video to use the same introduction as the other video, because this amplifier was included in that introduction. That post can be found here.
I also previously posted about the repairs that I did to this amp. That post can be found here.
The Kent BA-170 bass guitar amplifier head was built for a couple of years in the mid 1960s. This amp uses a pair of EL-84 power tubes to generate about 16-18 watts of output power. This amp head was designed with a bit more conventional preamp circuit, for the time, than the DR-57 had. The amp had a volume control, a treble and a bass control, and speed and intensity controls for the tremolo circuit.
Here is my video about this amp.
I hope you'll find this video informative and interesting.
