Found me a new old little amp....
After a re-cap, it will be subject to some guitar friendly mods
Tubes are stock = Telefunken ECC83 and Siemens EL34....

Knob labels even MORE cryptic than Orange Pix ! :lol:

I hope it sounds as cool as it looks. Very Austin Powers-ey.

Looking forward to the tone report. :dude:

I got the following information from European Guitar Forums.

Bottom paragraph of the first page in the thread.

There were a couple of medium power combos too. The scarce Da Capo (I've never seen one) and the Rex. The Rex combo is a true workhorse. Derived from the King head, loaded with two EL34 delivering 35 healthy Watts into two speakers making of it a great stage tool. It has the typical German (strange) combination of slightly different sized speakers (2x~10"). I still cannot figure out the logic behind this arrangement. It's usually found in Hohner and Suprem combos too. I guess it improves articulation somehow. The Rex has two independent channels with two inputs provided with sensitivity switches and a two band equalizer each, a vibrato for the second channel, an extension speaker output and a link for an external Dynacord tape echo unit.

Thanks all for chipping in.
I will do a tone report and a demo as soon as possible (amp still need some work).

As theaxeman pointed out it is a German 60's amp, built like a tank...

Speaker 1 = Dynacord 12" 7,5 ohm, broad band
Speaker 2 = Dynacord 10" 7,5 ohm, ?

I played it for about 10 min today. The speakers sound vintage "HiFi",
and doesn't look alnico. The trem is to cry for.
I think these amps were designed for cleans, but I know that mods can transform them to roaring beasts... :thumb:

I have problems uploading to Photobucket but here's 4 gut pics:
