    The Pre-amp tubes on this model were a 6SC7 for the first gain stage and a 6N7 for phase inverter. Not two 6SN7’s as on the page. This was a common circuit for 40’s amps and was found with some slight variations in some Valco made amps of the day.

    I have one in for repair that has a 7F7 preamp tube. The P.I. is a 6N7 and the output tubes are 6K6GT/G.
