    9033ED3F-37AD-4839-9736-B39991F3CF12.jpeg Does anyone know what type of amp this is? I’ve been researching online and I’m having no luck identifying it. The controls/inputs are down the side. It’s 2-channel. Ch1-1/4” microphone input w/volume. Ch2-instrument input w/ 4 parallel 1/4” jacks, volume and tone knobs. It’s loaded with a Jensen P15 who’s model# has 1 digit for the year. Which is 0 so, either 1940 or 1950? You’re help is greatly appreciated. 9033ED3F-37AD-4839-9736-B39991F3CF12.jpeg 87341225-0C05-4EF1-9AC9-1A39925666B4.jpeg

    I don't think the P15 was being made in 1940.

    P line started in 1940 which was a alnico series. Any Jenson usually before that was a field coil and could date back to 1927. Or a C series would usually be around the 60s

    Someone could have put a earlier speaker in a 1950s to 60s amplifier. There is only so many pre war amplifier manufactures. Could try dating any potentiometers in the amplifier.

    Ah ha. Thank you for the insight, BogeyBass! It’s an Alnico 5 concert series PM speaker
