Hi folks,

my bandmate has some vintage amp GAS and has a chance to buy this 70 Laney Supergroup. Could you please let me know, if this amp is in original condition (especially the blue caps on the right side)?

Transformer codes date it to 1972. The blue caps on the right are all replacements, the Bulgin chassis plug has been replaced with an IEC and it appears that the wiring around the EL34 sockets has been messed with. Is that something wrapped in black tape between the IEC plug and the screen resistor?

Here's a '71 for comparison, original apart from one octal socket.

The blue caps at right are low budget parts with wrong value (?) that is why I see some tye together.
I will replace them by good quality one.

That needs a proper recapping.
