    I just picked this up at a garage sale this weekend for $10. It's missing a power tube and hums like a bastard. I have a couple of friends with EE majors (they are also amp geeks) who will help me get it up and running.

    I know it's a guitar amp, but it seemed like too good of a deal to pass up. Here's a pic.

    Anybody know the specs?

    Good find! the knobs alone are probably worth 10 bucks.

    there is a schematic.

    Other than that 2x12" with 2 6l6 power and 7199, a 6CG7, four-12AX7 preamp.

    Supposed to be great for blues guitar with a real nice overdrive. Other than that I can't find much, but I must say that is a great find.

    Nice amp. I have the version with 2-10", the Gemini 20...cost me $20.

    With a missing power tube I would expect it to hum badly ;)

    I got 2 new power tubes last night--$14 each. My tech friends and I will look at it Thursday night at rehearsal. I'll keep y'all posted.
