    Anybody know this amp?

    Just looking for some info on this amp. Guy says it is a Johnson amp with a 4cx1500b tube. 2 piece amp but the power supply is missing. What would this thing be worth?

    Well I cant tell you anything specific about the amp, but I can tell you that is a pretty decent tube. I owned a box with a single 4cx1500b in it and with just a generic tube I saw around 2500 watts PEP out of it. The tube is radio driven of course(4cx) and it is relatively cheap(200 bucks or so) though the tube socket is very expensive on that particular tube. Tube only draws about .7 amps and will run good on 2500v so that being said I guess a lot of what it's worth depends on how cheap you could get a HV power supply built, that is if youre planning on using it. But if it's a Johnson its worth is more in the name and age than anything.

    Yeah the guy wont price it and is asking for offers. Got somebody that might be interested in it but just wondering what it is worth. He is trying to decide if it is worth buying it and then building a supply for it or just find one complete. He wants a 4cx tube so he doesnt have to use a driver. Just trying to help him out a bit.

    Yeah Grass I put a bug in his ear about that already if he does decide to buy it.10-4

    So the Guy wont even give ya an idea of what he wants for it huh.
    It looks really nice, the price would really depend on who wants it, might be worth less to some folks and more to others.
