Info and dating my orange cab

Post by matumbi » Mon Sep 22, 2014 8:53 am

Dear all,

I´m searching for some information about my orange cab (serial 8406) and I can´t find anything about this cab.

I did not open it until now but I think its about 1979/1980!? With Celestion G12-75.

The top part of the logo is missing. It is a smaller body than the other 70´s cabs and had a brown grill cloth.

Here with my GT100 Matamp on top! ;)

Backplate with serial 8406!

I found a nearly similar build combo in the field guide!

I took the fotos from the field guide website here just to show the equal logo ...

1979 Reverb Master!

Does anyone now something about the build date!?

Thanks in advance for every information!

Those were only made around 1979 - 1980 - it's from the Series II.

Your best bet for a closer date is to figure out the dates of the Celestions from their date codes.

Here some more pics from the speakers inside!

Celestion G12-80 Rola Type T2873 Date EM3 (I think 3 May 1979 correct!?)

Nice. The G12-80s will sound a ton better than G12T-75s would have with that amp!

EM3 = 3rd May 1979, which fits!

Fine, I think I have all information that I was searching for.

Thanks to you for your replies! ;)

... I send some of the pics of this box to the orange amp field guide, perhaps it will help other to identify series II cab!
