    Yep, EL 34's. 15" speaker. It originally had two 8" speakers on the side of the cab, meant as a full range amp for accordion, but with a guitar, the 15 get's it done. I have two old alnico 8's to put in it if I want. Sounds decent by itself. With my pedal board, it roars. I use a Barber Launch Pad to "cook" the preamp tube.

    Not sure when it was made, probably around 1960. There was a sticker with a model # on it at one time. Might be on the inside of the back panel, but someone put shielding on the panel, and I've never looked under it. Transformers are huge.

    Here is some info, and a slide show. At the end of the first, just click replay, and the second batch will commence.

    Hugh! That amp is too cool! Thanks for the link. Just sent it to my amp tech.
    I think I'd add the two 8" speakers back in, if you can figure out how they were wired. Kinda important to get the impedance matched up.

    1956 Pro Amp. A killer. Gigged with this for Tele, and my 64 Vibroverb for pedal steel, for years. Until people started askin' questions about them that made me nervous. That's when they retired!
