Default H.J.Leak TL12 "point one"

Hi guys,

found this amp at a local recycle center.

Had no idea what it was, just looked cool and old, so I snapped it up.

Bought home and had a quick google and seems it's a mono amp of around 1948.

The problem is that I am going to need a second one to be able to listen in stereo :-)

I haven't check anything on the wiring side yet, and is missing a valve.

Don't ask me how much I payed as it's probably likely to disappoint a lot of people ;-)

Lucky you.
Unfortunately the companion is likely to be very expensive as this was the most sought after Leak amp,

You can sell that Bulgin plug for like $40 to the Quad ESL crowd.


I'd clean it up and sell it, and get either a pair of mono tube amps or a stereo amp with your proceeds.

I have had several of these amps; best to sell; very poor quality out put transformers poor bass.
Better to use the money to make your own with better out put transformers.
