    Champ material there. If you restore it, they make nice gifts. If you keep it, don't play any good rock records on it, the tracking force is pretty heavy and will wear out the grooves.

    Call me crazy but I think this can handle even more than that (except for the OT which is quite small. Output is rated at 4 watts). But the PT is on the beefy side and the chassis is rated at 75 watts. That might put this into something like fender deluxe 5c3 or Harvard/Vibrolux territory with a different OT. Maybe even a fender model 26 deluxe? The model 26 would be interesting since this is a 1946 era radio.

    I couldn’t find the EIA for the transformers but it appears to be 265. It isn’t Bendix but not necessarily important. CH is also stamped before the code on the PT. My best guess from the schematic is that the PT is around a 280-0-280. The champ makings could be a good start but I’m sitting on too many projects to jump fast anyways. The Silvertone organ has not been forgotten

    I've wouldn't be too much worried about the voltage, it's the current you need to know. If it ran 1 6v6, i doubt it was rated to run 2 of them. All the other tubes added up only draw 1 or 2 ma each on the plate. You can also go by dimensions to get an idea of current. 100-120 ma min for a pair of 6v6. I built a amp with 70 ma for 6v6 push pull and it wasn't quite enough, a lot of sag.

    75 watts does sound good though.

    I’m definitely going to investigate more and try to calculate the draw if possible. For example, it looks like the 6sk7 will draw 9ma at the plates and 3ma at the screen (at 250v). And the schematic shows 232v at the plate and 160 at the screen. I’ve got 3 other tubes to look at too. Lower voltage, more current and such, I’m starting to think the current is there.

    A 2000 Squier Stagemaster HH7 off FB Marketplace for $65. It was dirty/grimy as could be so I fully disassembled/clean it up yesterday. It plays great with no issues whatsoever.

    Saw this for $5 and couldn’t resist. It’s 21.5 w, 13.5 h, and 6.5 d. Leather handle is original and still functional. The locks work and the key was included. Might be some mouse urine stains to boot. I love the tweed thing that’s going on here and it matches my amp and guitar case. This could go so many directions. A cable and gear tote. An amp conversion of sorts (my silver tone organ maybe?). Just a fun decoration. It’s in great shape so it’s definitely going places.

    You stole that from my basement didn't you? This hasn't really been opened since 87', all my old cords, mic cords, power supplies. Musty as all hell.

    Weekend finds once again. I had the tolex version of this monster mesa clone, Acoustic 164, this i think is the cabinet from the natural wood model, heavy, no EV speaker but a Utah in there. $15. Guy had 2 empty cabinets from fender super twins, 6 output tubes 6l6gc, passed on those.

    Roland D5 synthesizer of some sorts, guy said a few keys don't work, to me , a challenge, repair, it's in my blood. $20



    20190714_180216.jpg


    More germanium transistors, they keep finding me, i have enough for over 1000 fuzzfaces right now.

    One more big ass bag of transistors, these were used in Lovepedals BBB07, ezkiel. 904 pieces, i'm like a kid in a candy store. Raytheon T59248.

    Pedal board.

    I got a couple small makeup case looking things covered in faux-tweed. Really cool for storing junk... until the lid came off one. Might just tape it back together.

    Yes they can make excellent pedal boards. Right now I’m using a small American Tourister for just that. This suitcase is probably destined for cables or an amp though.

    I really should be making and selling fuzz pedals. Need to have PCBs made in China. I got good prices for the enclosures, painted. Need to price out switchcraft jack's, knobs, pots. Maybe 3 different models. Maybe I can Lazer etch painted enclosures with a cheap Chinese cnc?

    Much to think about. Had offers from a few pedal builders to sell the transistors, but they want to buy in bulk and there go mucho profits.

    Maybe call it a Muzzface or Muzz.

    Do you garage sail in Nashville or what? In hundreds of sales I found a couple of cables and a few mic stands and a no name strat.
