Western Electric 92A Public Address Amplifier
WE 92A PA Amplifier

Western Electric Company (sometimes abbreviated WE and WECo) was an American electrical engineering company, the manufacturing arm of AT&T from 1881 to 1995. It also served as the purchasing agent for the member companies of the Bell System. In 1929, Western Electric was also a big player in early cinema sound systems. It created the Western Electric Universal Base, a device by which early silent cinema projectors could be adapted to screen sound films. It also designed a wide-audio-range horn loudspeaker for cinemas. This was estimated to be nearly 50% efficient, thus allowing a cinema to be filled with sound from a 3-watt amplifier. This was an important breakthrough in 1929 because high-powered audio valves were not generally available back then. Western Electrics’ reputation for sound management was such that in 1949 President Truman requested that Western Electric manage a major defense laboratory, Sandia National Labs.

Masco MA-17 Amplifier. This amp makes a terrific blue’s harp amp. Do a Google search and check it out. It was manufactured under Western Electric patents as the License notification indicates. The capacitors look to be all original. I recently acquired the amp. I brought it up with a variac and tested it. The amp passed a signal but the amp had a low output and distorted the signal. I tested the caps on an LCR meter; they are mostly out of spec. Clearly the amp needs to be electrically rebuilt. This is a great opportunity to get a nice amp that has not been hacked and rebuild it the way you want it tailored to your sound. Sold as-is.

Please see the video on You Tube http://youtu.be/29k-E53pAOc for more details and ask any questions. According to the Blue Book this 20 Watt Mono Tube Amplifier was produced in 1977-1979 and it cost $185.00 new. If you take inflation into consideration this amp would cost over $700.00 today as compared to 1977. Also according to Blue Book this is “Very Rare”, but when you consider it is new in the box it would be considered extremely rare and maybe even one of a kind. It all works and sounds great and is perfect except for the bass pot is reversed but works as it should. Minimum is the max and vice versa. This is all shown in the video. The 6V4 tube is an Amprex Bugle Boy made in France, the two 6bq5s are RCA as are the two 6EU7s.

Bell Model 2122 6V6 Amplifier. Amp is manufactured under Western Electric licence. Cosmetically, the amp looks very nice and shows only light wear. I have not tried to power up this amp; it is just as I got it. It has very old capacitors which appear to be original and physically leaking. I am sure there is also electric leakage. The amp appears to have been modified years ago to some form of output transformerless guitar amplifier. I would recommend that a qualified person rebuild and go through the amplifier. Very uncommon and sold as-is.

Detail

This auction is for vintage 2 Altec Lansing 1530T power amplifiers. Both are in beautiful physical shape and in good working condition. I have tested these amps. and sound is excellent. Some resistors and capacitors have changed as following photos. Come with line transformer Peerless15095. Connected to 600Ω balance input now, ofcourse you can choose high impedance input through line transformer. Front facing panel is missing. transmitting tube 6146 pushpull. lower frequency sound is powerful.

Detail

Due to the age,some rusts and scratches on the surface. The 2 packing shipping weight will be around 28kg×2 as a rough guess. As mentioned previously these 2 amps. were tested before I listed it but since these are vintage electronics it is being sold as is. These 2 amps are too heavy and packed carefully in double box. I will ship air cargo only ,no surface. shipping costs bases on the box approx 52×35×47cm weight 28kg×2 from Japan. No packing/handling charge only the actual shipping costs. Buy it now on eBay!
