Other Amps

hey Oahu dudes

1

Saw this up close @ local GC. It's clean... back side and control panel is good, has period blue Jensen 12, code shows 220-011 they say.Prob needs servicing bad, (has original 2 prong cord).

I should have checked tubes but would bet anything it's a single 6V6 and octals. Will check it out again if anyone seriously interested.

Seemed like a decent price and w/ a store full of Line 6 and Peavey modeling amps, it's nothing anyone knows anything about or really gives a damn about. Price seems better than others out there.

I think Oahu started independently but then became part of Valco?
