all-over zip-up cover made by Studio Slips in the US.
You don't see these for sale very often in this great condition. It's been cherished in a non-smoking, pet-free, talent-free home.Please read the review

And at full power, the Slant 6V runs four 6V6 output tubes split in cathode and
fixed bias pairs, placing every conceivable classic tube tone at your
