Talking Strauss Amplifiers

I was wondering people in Cyber Space if anyone has heard of a guitar amp made in Australia during the 60's - 70's called a Strauss. I am looking for a circuit diagram and other information, pictures etc. They are rated at 200w output and was used by John Baxter of Buffallo.

If any tech's that worked for the company or someone who own one could you get in contact with me and we can come to some arrangement.

I would like to reproduce one of these beasts.

I have a hand drawn copy of a Strauss 200W bass amp that I serviced a few times. It uses 6 EL34 valves in the output - is this what you are after?

Trying to build one would be a challenge, as the power and output transformers would have to be custom wound, therefore expensive....

Can scan the circuit if you like.

Cheers
