I picked this up yesterday and variaced it up. I can't find squat of info about it but it seems very, very cool. Serial # 177

Once again I defer to the amazingly knowledgeable folk here for more fun facts about obscure items

Nice color green, Seems to lack really big output tubes so I am guess it is a preamp or a pre driver amp used with a main power amp.

They are however a pentode type and a pair of them will yield from 12 - 17 watts output. I would guess the middle tranny is the output!

Looks like a nice collectors item though!
