1968 Ampeg J-12 Jet


This 1968 Ampeg Jet amp has the typical look Ampeg would use on most of their amps throughout the 1970s. The circuit is relatively unchanged from the 1966-67 Jets. One nice thing about the Jet amps is they are more willing to distort than most of the other Ampeg models. This one starts to break up before the volume is even halfway up. With 18 watts of power, it isn't incredibly loud so it is a good practice amp.
