Tramp amplifiers

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know anything about Tramp amps and cabs. Mid 70s, so not Trace Elliott or Stormtrooper helmets...

Is it an Ohm Tramp like this one? i had an Ohm GA140 combo in the late 80's and it was a great little amp.

I have one, looks identical except mine has two inputs and a tweeter.  I bought it 20-odd years ago from an old fellow who had been using it as an amp for his keyboard.  I’ve used it on stage on occasion, but miked up.

It's currently my practice amp, in my 'music corner', I play guitar, bass, and drum kit through it as the mood takes me......

I came across one in an antique shop the other week and I had a quick Google but couldn't really find anything other than one was made for keyboards as well. Think it was about £60.

I don't know much about them, but I have a vague recollection of the ones used by Rory Gallagher and his band being called Stramp, not Tramp.

Well done! The skinny 'S' blurs out on the TV footage!

" 100 Watt Marshall Superlead-clone Ca. 1971 Stramp 2100A - Made in Germany. With its 4x EL-34 and 3x ECC83 tubes, this amplifier was a clone of the Marshall 1959 Superlead. "

Seems well known users were Gerry McAvoy, Leslie West, John Entwhistle and possibly Adrian Legg.
