Selmer Treble-N-Bass Fifty
This vintage Selmer Treble-N-Bass Fifty came to us with some electronic issues. It was more than a routine repair, so we consider it a restoration. It looked great but had a bad power transformer, tired tubes, and suffered from oscillations. The original filter caps were also positioned on top of the chassis, potentially exposing the user to dangerous high voltages. We had the power transformer re-wound, went over the entire amp, installed NOS Mullard tubes, and fabricated a protective cover for the new filter capacitors.
