Ampeg Super Echo Twin
Can anyone give me any much needed info on an  
Ampeg Super Echo Twin? I have come across one  
for sale for less than $400 and feel like I  
should jump on it- any recommendations?  
There's exceptionally little information on  
this amp on the web- not that i could find  
Thanks very much.

If its the blue checked covered model it is very cool. I don't think they made too many. I have serviced hundreds of 60's Ampegs and have seen only one of the Echo Twins. Plan on doing some service. It will probably need at least power tubes and filter caps even if the owner says it "works". Well worth the cost in my opinion!  
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.
