Epiphone Constellation EA72 and EA72L

Bass Guitar Amplifier

Epiphone Constellation EA72
Epiphone Constellation EA72

The Epiphone Constellation was Epiphone's bass amplifier available throughout the mid 1960s. Its single 15" speaker was upgradable in the EA72L with a J. B. Lansing cone, although these were shipped in considerably smaller numbers (just 5 units) than the standard version. This was one of Epiphones larger amps of the time, and although this configuration has a separate cab and head, it was also available as a combo in the Constellation V EA71.

The Epiphone amplifier is an instrument of quality, ingenuity and performance. The big sound, the special sound, the sound that is not just for today, but also tomorrow

Both cabinet and head (optionally) came with covers (parts 610-CA amp cover $6, and 610-CC cabinet cover $18). Despite the fact these amplifiers were only shipped between 1964 and 1967, they appeared in Epiphone price lists between 1963 and 1968. After the initial announcement in 1963 at $389.50, the price remained unchanged throughout the production run at $415. Interestingly, the September 1963 price list describes the EA72 (which was still not yet being shipped apparently) as having a 12" speaker cone. Did some early Constellations have a 12" cone? Was the size changed once production started? Was this just a typing error?
