Default Any info on Vintage 1970s Linear T40/60 MK1 Amplifier?

Hi All

Anyone heard about this amp?
I have seen it for sale recently, but couldn't find any info on it anywhere.

Vintage 1970s Linear T40/60 MK1 Amplifier w/ Matching 1x12 Fane Speaker Cabinet | eBay


I am not even sure if it is a tube amp or transistor p.a.

Any one?

Thanks

Ahhh ... it says it is not a valve amp. Sorry.

OK, it is a transistor. Really really rare amp. I have not seen or heard that amp in my 30 years of amp using experience. Have you?

In the 1970s, everybody and his dog was building guitar amps (tho this is a voice-mike amp). They now seem "unique" or "rare" because a lot of them were crap.

Look at the bottles. (Yeah the text too but I never trust the seller.)

So true. Very clearly transistors (2n3055)

Also looking at the construction of this one, particle board and just an unknown circuitry + probably bunch of parts you have to replace.
Personally I wouldn't take it
Rare does not always mean good!

This is a transistor amp. They were made in the 1970's in Leeds, England I believe. They must be reliable as I have one which still works.

Didn't know them until searching just now.
My bro' has an RSC Bass valve amp, which I didn't know was made by same company.
I'm sure he'll be thrilled when I tell him it was made locally.
