    What type of tremolo do these amps have? Is it a phase inverter bias wiggle?

    Wow that's unique! What speakers are in it? I wonder what the sound difference is between a 4x10 and a 2x12?

    Speakers are Marshall sticker branded Celestions, model 7442 i think they are called.

    It was bought for a studio in München Germany (Trixie Tonstudios or something) in 69 and keep there til 2007 and after that at a collector. One switch, bias caps with resistor, and mains and tubes have been changed but all saved and kept with the amp. Wasn´t planning on this one but could not resist when it turned up. Wont be here til next weekend...

    Thanks you guys!

    Its kind of interesting with the narrow vent on the cabinet as other basketweave BB I've seen had wider ones. Probably an early basketweave feature. London John! Combo expert please chime in! ;)

    Cool amp. Yeah those are the 7442's and should have the NIB stamped cones. Nice speakers if they are still in good working order.

    It finally arrived today! A lot of logistics hiccups and when it finally got away it got on the wrong truck and ended up it the other part of the country. But it made it safe and looks great. I jut put it inside the house and have´t had time to test it. Will do! Apart from the logo it is exceptionally clean!

    Very cool, needs the correct logo to be even more cool.

    What speakers are in that amp?
