    Was at a friends house earlier today and he shows me this amp that someone gave him. It had a 15 inch speaker, was in an enclosed cabinet, treble, mid, bass and volume adjustments. The brand name on the cabinet is STEELPHON. The only other writing on the cabinet was "CANADA" near the controls. I'm assuming STEELPHON is the brand and CANADA is the model.

    Checked out Harmony Central and there are reviews for 3 STEELPHON amps - all for guitar, not bass. The guitar amps were all from the 70's and manufactured in Italy.

    This amp is not currently operational - would need power conversion (I assume its wired for Italy). Didnt have time to open it up and look around.

    Anyone ever heard of this amp??

    I might just have to make it a "project"~~ :D

    FWIW, I once restored a Steelphon guitar head - tube pre-amp & transistor power amp. It was a nice-sounding, well-made unit (and funky styling!).
