My amp? I love it....but?

I’ve had it for nearly 30yrs. 4xEL34’s and the rest is what you see. But can any of you guys name it?

no clue - the cabinet looks to have Fender grill cloth though.

Hi Pop. Some have said Fender? All the iron is down one end. Horrible to carry.

How about SUNN?

Huh!?

Looks kind of like a Magnatone to me.

Hi, Phoo. Never heard of 'em?

Could it be an early Hi-Watt <<
spelling… ????

I wouldn’t be trading it away…
I’ve seen it in your other photo uploads…


Take the back off and lets have a peek at it…
Maybe, take the chassis out of the cabinet and shoot them up…


Bill…

Looks Hiwatt-ish to me too…

Could it have been a kit amp?

What’s it say over on the left side of the faceplate? What kind of speakers? Do they have any numbers on them or anything? Dating can sometimes be done that way. Anything on the chassis?

Hi Tom. It could be a kit but someone has gone to some length with the piping etc.

as requested.

What’s it say on the front left of the faceplate?

Hmmm…how about a Selmer Treble and Bass 50? Or some Similar Selmer?

Cheers, Tom. Just checked 'em out. It looks like their quality of work. Could be? I wish I could solve this (not in a heavy way) one, it’s been driving me nuts for nearly thirty years. Every music mate has had a different story. It don’t matter none. I love the sound.

It is beginning to look more of a HiWatt Amp more-and-more..
They hand wired the parts and after completion you'd see a perfect example of what a hand wired chassis should look like..
All the components "Square-and-Parallel" to each-other, and all..

I'd really like to see the under side of it's chassis..
That might very well tell-the-story..


The IRON looks very UK'ish and OR..
European..
BUT
HiWatt was North American, I believe..
I think built somewhere in New York State, I think..


We handled those Amps during the mid-to-late '70's at the Musicstop..
I'd like to know what happened to them.. They're out there somewhere..



Bill..

Hiwatt == UK

Thanks Diogesneez:


Here’s a History Lesson extraordinaire

Phil went on to form Soundcraft with Graham Blythe, and today is chairman of Focusrite.


What a small world we live in…
:)
:p



Graham Blythe is a Pipe Organ Freek…
He’d travel the world looking for that special Pipe Organ to play…
Casavants <
spelling…
are his favorites…
They were built by Father-and-sons who settled in the Montreal area…
way back when…

You see…
this part of the country is polluted with big old churches…
They all seemed to have these Pipe Organs…
I got to admit…
Pipe Organs are like NO- Other Organs…




Diogesneez…
Do a Google on that name… Merci… Beau coup… or Buck-tooth… for those of you who are not French… :whistle:




Bill…

Cheers guys. Scouring all vintage amp info and can’t find a likeness.
I’ll drag the chassis out and look for more clues.
