    ** Hi,

    got one of these old boat anchors in the workshop - six EL34s and two over
    sized transformers.

    The "R" version has a reverb tank mounted vertically, at the front of the
    chassis - but it is not an Accutronics, or any recognisable Asian make.

    What did Sound City use ?

    Was there a maker of reverb tanks in the UK back in the early 70s?

    VOX amps had something really horrible back in the 60s, but this one is a
    copy of the Accutronics design with tiny, rotating magnets and a low
    impedance input needing a drive transformer.

    I expect a 17 inch Accutronics, with 8 ohm and 2000 ohms coils, will be drop
    in replacement.


    Both springs are missing as are 3 of the 4 magnets.

    .... Phil
