1964 Carvin Model #28-212-D Amplifier

The Model #28-212-D amp was a 50W combo that used a pair of 12" and a pair of 8" Jensen speakers.  The chassis was mounted at the bottom of the unit, to provide better heat dissipation. The amp itself was the same as the Model #10-RA (see below).  Price on this unit was $199.90 with reverb, or $169.90 without.

The Model #10RA was the heart of the #28-121-D above.  This amp provided 50W RMS through two channels with 3 inputs on each channel.  Controls included tone for each channel, volume for each channel, tremolo speed and depth and reverb.  The Model #10RA, with Hammond reverb, sold for $129.90.
