Here's what National Reso-Phonic have to say about their No. 1500 Amplifier:
If you’re seeking to amplify the true sound of a National resonator guitar, our No. 1500 is the amplifier for you. It’s custom-designed and -built just for that task. The 15-watt, class-AB, push–pull circuit recreates the vintage style and classic sound of National’s pioneering 1940s amps. While our No. 500 amp provides a nice bluesy breakup and distortion to your sound, the No. 1500 replicates and amplifies the actual resonator sound with true and clear output, thanks to the amp’s low-gain preamp stage and 12-inch Tone Tubby speaker. And of course, just like the vintage originals, it’s hand-wired, point-to-point circuitry for optimal sound quality and long-lasting reliability. The No. 1500 is ideal for recording, playing at home, or gigging in smaller venues. It’s great for jazz, folk, country — and all things National.
