free tube gear score!

so I was checking the free ads on craigslist and there was one mentioning some free speakers that wasn't too far from my house so I went and checked it out. turns out the property was a former group home for the retarded and the company that was running the facility that was trying to do a rent to own situation fell threw, the home itself was also shut down for mistreatment of its patients, anyway I get out there, it was down a long driveway where I saw a small group of houses, all were overgrown and trash was all over the place. I got the speakers which are 1980s BPC era whitewall woofer JVCs, cabinets in bad shape but good drivers still



after I loaded those into the car I walked around the property looking at all the stuff. behind the house out in the woods I came across a Hammond tube organ, looked to be a old B-3 but it was in horrible shape, cabinet was water damaged, had a termite infestation, and was full of mouse poop. it was a B3 and if it had been in better shape I would have dragged it home, but it was awful, so I robbed the amp, preamp, speakers, and reverb unit out of it.




the woofers although rusty dare not damaged. seem to be Jensen specials but not sure



the amp is push pull mono 6bq5 based. rough shape, it was exposed to the elements for a lot of years. dunno if it works yet

Not bad. At the very least, I'd clean up and rebuild the amp & pre. Might be able to find a use for those speaks too.

Have you checked out the tubeage? If that rectifier is a GE, it's a nice one. I prefer the side getter GE over most others.

There should be some number on the back of the speaker. If they are Jensen's they will be 220XXX there should also be a number like C12N or summin.....
