This is a cool old Oahu 1- 10' amp built by Valco in Chicago circa 1950. Serial # is X3608. Tube complement is 5Y3, 2 6V6, and 1 6SC7 and 1 6S7. The latter is a pentode- the socket specifies a 6J7 which if you check your tube manual is very similar- the amp works fine as it stands or you can change back- neither tube should be hard to find or expensive. Just mentioning in the interests of accuracy. Speaker is original field-coil style- cone is fine and original. I have replaced all original wax-and-paper coupling caps with NOS Sprague Black Beauties from circa 60's as the old ones are prone to leakage. Also replaced power cord with 3-prong update. The old one was crumbling and I doubt the amp was used for quite a while. Filter caps are original- amp runs dead quiet- you might want to replace them anyway but that's up to you... Cosmetically it's pretty good for a 50-year old WHITE amp- structurally solid- original handle and feet intact. I need hardly tout the virtues of Valco sound- this is a ripper and particularly nice for HARP or LAP STEEL. Shipping weight around 20 lbs. Email ?'s. Thanks
