Magnatone custom 450 anyone have one?

Postby Robstersamps on Tue Aug 22, 2017 11:51 am

Anyone have one of these amps? The one I am working on is from 1963 and came with 12ax7 not 6eu7 preamp tubes.
This one was missing one 6973 and the 6CA4 and the speakers. I was able to get a speaker and 6973 for testing, need the 6ca4.
If anyone has one of these amps I would like to ask some questions. I spent a few hours cleaning it up and will be close to testing soon.
Will bring it up on a variac when I do. Any gut shots of these amps would be appreciated. I have a schematic but its not very high quality.

You might contact theses guys
I see they have a schematic posted for this amp.
You might try looking for gut shots of similar Magnatone models from that era but, im not really sure what you're looking for. It's got the nice four varistor vibrato. Seems to be a rarely seen amp.
Good luck!
