Tungsten Cortez 5E3 Circuit Black Tweed

$1,499

CornerStone Music is proud to be an Authorized Tungsten Amps dealer.

The Tungsten Cortez is based on the classic, and very desirable 5E3 design, putting out 12 watts with a pair of 6V6 tubes or 18 watts with a pair of 6L6 Tubes. And this one is covered in a very cool black tweed.

It has a single tone knob, with Bright and Normal volume controls, 4 inputs, and comes standard with a custom designed 12″ Weber T12Q Alnico Speaker and Mercury Magnetics transformers.

It also includes a pair of 12AX7 Preamp tubes and a 5Y3 rectifier tube. And because this amp is cathode biased, swapping power tubes is just a matter of plugging them in. No re-biasing is ever necessary. Likewise, the preamp section accepts 12AX7, 12AU7, 12AY7, 12AT7, and 5751 tubes, giving you a great deal of control over your tone.

Tungsten asked me to sell this as a demo unit. There is a very slight bend in the chassis near lettering of the middle volume knob. I never would have seen it if he didn’t point it out to me. The is also a small indentation on the right side of the back panel.

The price has been adjusted accordingly.
