    Kalamazoo Model 2

    There are long distance transactions when you canít personally take a look inside an amp. The seller canít or will not take the time to show you a pic or take a look inside.

    My question is specific to Kalamazoo Model 2 amps.

    I know some of the Kalamazoo Model 2s are solid state, something to avoid as a harp player.

    How can you tell which Model 2s are all tube or solid state when you donít have access to see?

    Are all brown face Kalamazoo Model 2s non-solid state?
    Does anyone have an all type Kalamazoo Model 2 for sale reasonably?
    Thanks

    The solid state version says "solid state" on the front panel.

    The Kalamazoo 3 is a solid state (transistor) version of the Model 1. It appears to use an identical, 10" speaker. The clean sound is OK, but not great. The distortion is typical, cheap solid state distortion. It comes on suddenly, and is fairly buzzy. Whether it's a good distortion is a matter of taste.

    The Kalamazoo 4 is a solid state (transistor) version of the Model 2. It appears to use an identical, 10" speaker. The tone is identical to that of the Model 3.
