And Now For Something Completely Different

Here's something that I acquired a few years ago and hadn't pulled it out until recently.

I have no idea who made it at all and it could be a homebuilt.

The speaker's a Magnavox field coil job made for Crosley, and the tube lineup is 6J5-6J5-6J5-6V6-6V6-80. The 80 rectifier and the field coil dates this to likely prewar or possibly just post war.

It probably pushes 6 or 8 watts at full tilt and it's got an interesting neon bulb that flickers when it goes into clipping. If I had to take a guess it is probably a converted record player amp.
