Old tube guitar amp project
Anyone have any interest in a nice EL84/6BQ5 project chassis?
I bought this with good intentions but never got to it and now I'm getting pressure to "clean out some of that junk".
It's out of a Graflex 16mm projector, not positive but my investigations led to the Galaxy model, possibly the 800 series which sported 15w audio. Pots date to 1964. The circuit features a tube rectifier (EZ81/6CA4), one preamp tube (6AN8) the two EL84 output tubes. All on a nice pcb, and it looks like it could be fairly easily modded into a great guitar amp. Controls are VBT. Original dual 1/4" output jack is there too.
The Power tranny is now gone but the output tranny is still mounted and reads good with multimeter. The guy before me had it running and scabbed on an IEC-60320 type power cord receptacle with circuit breaker, switch and original pilot lamp. Chassis is 4 1/8" x 10.5" x 1 1/8"
As is I'd like $50 shipped CONUS and will include the GE 6AN8A and Sylvania 6CA4 that came mounted on the board. Both test good.
Also have a nice old-iron Stancor choke that would be great in an 18W amp. 220 ohm, 9.6h, 100ma. pm me if you are interested in it.
