    Anyone in the bay area want to play with a tiny guitar tube amp? I was thinking about converting it into a pedal or something, but got lazy. There are three tubes inside and a little diagram on the back cover. It produces a signal very quietly, but there's a loud hum.

    I don't need much in return. A good set of strings (5 string)? A pedal? Whatever...just send me a pm.

    I will take a photo in a bit if for some reason someone outside of the area _needs_ it.

    PMs back...Here are some quick cell phone pictures (sorry). I was wrong; there are only three tubes. On the last picture, I took inside metal housing off so you can see the mess of wires. I don't see anything obviously wrong, but I know nothing about this stuff. Edit: Note it only has a volume knob. But, tone in the fingers, right? ;)

    Any idea what the tubes are? (still want that sweet looking little thing. I have an AlNiCo 12 speaker that would do well in there)

    I think 12" is too big...it's only 11 or so inches wide!

    The tubes are:
    12AU6 (currently a Miniwatt)
    50C5 (currently a GE)
    35W4 (currently a RCA)

    Last call bump.

    Have a few good offers and will go with one unless I hear from anyone else. Local folks encouraged.
