Default Packard Bell Tube Amp

---SOLD---
I've decided to sell my first tube amp; a Packard Bell I pulled from a 1964 console. It's got the following complement of tubes: 1- 5U4GB, 2- 12AX7A, 4- EL84. All the tubes are Packard Bell tubes. I replaced all the caps except the big "combination cap." It works great and the only reason I'm selling it is I bought a Jolida tube amp off the local classifieds for an unbelievably low price. The amp has a volume control, one set stereo of inputs, and pair of speaker outputs.
Asking price is $100 plus shipping. PayPal is fine.
Mike

Hi Mike,
I wish I have seen you amp listed earlier. I would love to buy it so I can study it to fix my.
I have one like it and I am trying to pull it out of the console to make it work as stand alone unit.
I jumped the power to have it turn on without connecting to the console preamp 9 pin cord; but the sound volume was very little!?
It sound great and loud when connect back to the console.
Could you please help me to troubleshoot.
Best regards,
Frank

Hi Mike,
I am not sure how to navigate around this forum yet. I am a new member.
Congrats on the purchase of your new Jolida amp. What model is it? Does it sound a lot better than your old Parkard Bell? Louder? WPC?
Do you know what is the power output on your old Parkard Bell amp wpc?
I have one and in the process of mods it to make it as a stand alone unit (without the console).
I need you help to walk me through the process if possible.
I was able to find the power and made a jumper to connect the unit for power (without the 9 pin connected to the preamp console unit). But with a very low volume (using the same speakers so the spks efficiency is not an issue)
Could you please tell me where to look next?
Thank you,
Frank
