Preamplifier - hh Scott 121-C
This is a fine example of an hh Scott 121-C tube amplifier from 1956 or 1957. I don't collect tube units - yet, but this came to me through a friend, and I couldn't pass it up. It is in near-mint condition and looks like it's been kept in a sealed, air-tight storage box for 50 years.
Immaculate physical condition, in this case, didn't translate to immaculate electrical condition. This unit hummed and had low-level volume, but needed new tubes or new caps.
If you have any more information on a Scott 121-C, including photos or personal stories, please leave a comment or email me.
