This 1962 Magnatone 460 is a dual-channel all-tube amplifier employing the use of 10 vacuum tubes throughout its circuitry. The unit features a reverb (predating even Fender in its implementation) and a vibrato section.
The 460 was the continuation of the 260 amp of the 1957-1960 era with a few engineering updates and the with the addition of the reverb effect. Magnatone quickly added the 260 back to the catalog as the 262, perhaps due to the 260's continued popularity. In use, the unit produces the unmistakable big Magnatone sound, and its reverb and true pitch shifting vibrato sections pre-date those of Fender's.
