Alright so I picked this up a few weeks back on a blind buy and was told it was possibly a marshall clone, but with less gain.

Its got two 6CA7 power tubes, three 5751 preamp tubes, and a GZ34 rectifier tube. Quite a few of the parts are late 60s, early 70s in it. It's got a PCB and they used a old fender transformer in it. I was hoping somebody on here has seen something similar or might know more info so I can at least found what its based off of. I was thinking a JTM, but I don't know marshalls well. Normal input is pretty clean for its volume, and the boost channel has lots of gain at any volume.

Thanks!

It looks like the kind of thing I myself could have put together way back in time (this is not mine), must be a home made amplifier given the very odd way it's put together. Why there is a valve that is not wired is beyond me, especially as it looks like a television valve with it's top anode cap, never seen that kind of valve in any amplifier before.

Other than these comments I have no idea, though if it works great, but I might be tempted to remove the non wired valve to avoid confusion.

Already removed it lol. Yea that socket was confusing. The guy who I bought it off of got it from a thrift store. He told me he just randomly threw any tube he had in the socket.......crazy.
