1965 Ampeg Gemini I G-12 serial number 006862. This amp is in very good condition, fully functional, cosmetically showing some scuffs and wear on the blue diamond covering most notably on edges and corners. There is a knob showing on the speaker grille that is attached to a disconnected load rheostat (the poor man’s power soak). There is a non-original handle, back panel screws & echo (reverb) knob. The power cable is now a 20’ 3 prong (no extension cord needed here).
The Gemini I G-12 is a 20 watt two channel unit with 2 inputs per channel with tremolo and reverb. The controls feature bass, treble, volume, with tremolo intensity and depth, reverb intensity, and an ultra-bright feature (like a bright switch) and repeat percussion on the tremolo feature.
These iconic early ampeg combos have been favorites of jazz and blues players for years but are suitable for even more than that. The tone is warm and clean, however a good amount grit can be found at higher output levels.
This Gemini has been faithful thru decades of gigs. Not a museum piece, just looking for more gigs or a nice basement/living room to settle down in and outlive you.

*Please note: we do our best giving descriptions of used pieces. We have found it impossible to describe every mark on an instrument or amp that is not in the "mint" category. Also, what's important to you may not be important to someone else. For example, you may say, "I don't care what it looks like as long as it plays or sounds well." Another person may say, "Body cosmetics are very important to me so tell me about every scratch, nick and blemish." So, please ask the questions that are most important to you. If you ask they will be answered. They are free and there's no limit. Additional photos can also be made available.
