James of Von Saint Design is a bass lover like the rest of us, but even deeper his passion lies in vintage Ampeg SVT gear.
He sent us Parts 1 and 2 of a 4-part You Tube series he made about the classic equipment.
Oliver also borrowed a design from an old sewing machine where the unit would flip out of the cabinet.
Your serial number falls solidly in the 1965 range of codes according to that site. I have no musical ability what so ever, I have no clue as to how much this more than heavy amplifier is worth, if anything? If you check the link a couple posts up in this thread, you'll be able to get a pretty close date with the serial number.
Hopefully with enough input we can learn about Kay Bass Serial Numbers and Model Types.
My dad was the musician and I have got all the instruments and amplifiers he had. I did talk to a man that actually played with my dad some and said, I should name a price, because he was afraid he could not give me a fair price. Also, if you have a xylophone with a broken motor, it's really a vibraphone. I hope someone here can point you to a quality shop in your area that will give you a fair appraisal of your dad's equipment.
The best guide for pricing is to check completed auctions on e Bay.
Thank you,plumcrzee First of all, Sorry for the loss of your father.
