Space Age combo amp SOLD
This started off as a project in the shop. As I was working on the amplifier itself, I remembered I had a vintage Stromberg Carlson speaker box. So, they two got married together.
The amplifier is loosely based off the Supro 1606 circuit, but with some heavy changes. Single 6V6 tube, with a single 12AX7 preamp. The power transformer is a vintage Heathkit unit. The output transformer is a Mercury Magnetics that we use in our White amplifiers.
The speaker is a vintage 1957 Hepner speaker. Big alnico magnet, great definition, with an impressive tonality. The vintage cabinet is mounted on an iron pipe, which is directly moutned to the chassis. The vintage box does have some wear and some paint spatter. I think it is part of the charm.
There are an additional two output jacks out the back of the chassis in case extra speakers need to be run.
