I recently acquired this '49 Super in a trade. Yes, it needs a lot of help, but it has very good "bones". It will be brought back as close as possible to original. Thought it might make for an interesting thread... As you can see, the tweed is long gone. The story is that the original owner's band mate's all had matching yellow amps. The grille cloth is some funky 50's upholstery fabric. Not sure what the story is on the stainless steel plate; will have to see what's going on under there... Somebody shotgunned this with orange drops and added some different filtering. All of that will come out and be replaced. The coupling caps will all be replaced with .05 600V Red "Astrons" from Jupiter. Filter caps will be Sprague Atoms in the correct values. Note all of the carbon comps are the large 1 watters. I believe most of these to be original with the exception of a some 220K's subbed in for the original 250K's (going to be hard to find, I bet). Speakers are original Jensen P10R's with a date codes indicating 51st week of 1949. Both of them sound ok at first blush. One may have a slight buzz...we'll have to wait and see if a recone is warranted. Speaker mounted output tranny is original, as it the power transformer. Wiring is a dog's breakfast, and will be put back to original. Cab is in pretty decent shape (aside from the obvious). Back panels are original to the amp as well. The cab and panels are all marked "16" in pencil. Well that's it for now. Anybody have a NOS roll of early 50's tweed?
