Things to check when buying a DC-5?

Post by ultimate1 » Sun Dec 27, 2015 6:10 pm

I am still a little new when it comes to tube amps and I have been enjoying the Rocket44 I got earlier in the year and started looking for a studio 22 or a DC2 for playing at lower volumes. Sure enough I came across a ridiculously low priced DC-5 that I have to check out because it is that stupidly priced. Yeah less than a Fender Super ChampX2 LOL. Sounds like it just need the top handle and the grill has a small rip awaiting pics from the seller.

There are some really nice demo videos online that has me wanting to get this amp big time. I will be on here poking around trying to find out as much as I can on these amps but greatly appreciate any help you guys can offer. I know the usual stuff like where was it stored, last time serviced etc are the usual things that even a noob like me can do but please let me know of any problem areas that are common with these amps.

Thanks in advance
