    *****SOLD*****This would be like the original Lil' Bastard:bassist:.
    Built like they used to:
    • All point to point hand wired
    • Partridge transformers
    • 20W @20lbs
    • 2 EC84 EH Russian power tubes
    • 1 12AX7A RCA
    • 1 unknown labelled Japan
    • New handle
    • New grounded power cord
    • Lockable Bias pot installed on back panel
    What can I say, it sounds beautiful. The big tranny makes the most of 20W I'll tell ya.:) I go for a pretty clean tone and was able to gig this outdoors powering 2 8ohm Bag End 15's with my P bass keeping it light with the right hand. One cab angled to me as a monitor was also good indoors even w/ full band when I had good PA support.
    I bought 2 matched Tube Store 'Perfect Pair' 7189 power tubes which, when properly biased, should give max clean headroom. I tried them briefly but never got to the biasing so I've pulled them. I will include these if the buyer likes for an extra $35- I paid $25 apiece. I was assured everything was original and unmolested apart from the handle, cord and bias pot mod.

    I have an opportunity to snag a Fender Super Twin locally, can't pass it up. So even if it is not your cuppa tea let your guitar player know!

    $380 split shipping PayPal please.

    I think Traynor used Hammond transformers exclusively. I'm not too familiar with this particular model however I don't think it's a Partridge transformer. Those were used in HiWatts.
