What’s the Impedance I need?

    I have this 1968 Univox E3 (or 1235) that I’ve had for at least 15 years or so. I sold the cab ages ago, and I’d like to revive this amp and give it a second shot at life as a guitar amp. Trouble is- I don’t know what impedance I need on a new cab to function correctly. Anyone here know what it might be, or how I’d find out?

    Question 2: How hard is it to replace the old 2-prong cord to a safer one with a ground?

    I looked back thru the history on this head and its a 50 watt head that needs an 8 ohm cabinet.

    As far as putting a 3 prong cord on it, take it to a tech and have it done right.

    Perfect. Thank you!

    It will be seeing a tech before it’s recommissioning for sure.
