Default Anyone with original WE or Altec 755 please look inside

Anyone with original Western Electric or Altec 755A drivers I need some help. There might be an engineering number on the back side of the cone, if you find any please PM me.

Also anybody with an original cone from one of these, even just pieces of it let me know. I have having it analyzed to see the properties but need to make sure we get enough of a representative sample. I only have a single cone here from an early Altec 755A but its unknown if its original or was ever reconed years ago (it sure looks original)

Lets just say I have access to the original cone molds for these drivers, now we need to figure out the original pulp and see if its still possible to make new today.

I believe you'll have best luck at these three forums:

http://www.hostboard.com/cgi-bin/ult...b/forum/f/3729

http://www.audioasylum.com/cgi/etv.mpl?forum=hug

http://audioheritage.csdco.com/vbulletin/

and possibly here:

http://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?

Hope you're able to eventually reproduce these at a reasonable cost.

GM

Thanks GM, I found some good leads there. I need to give my Japanese connection a call since it appears he has horded most of the remaining original drivers.
