70's Silverface Twin clone information wanted

Postby MysteryAmp on Tue Mar 28, 2017 2:36 pm

New to the forum, looking forward to picking all your brains!

I picked up a rather interesting amp last year, it's a clone of a 1970's master volume era Silverface Twin Reverb - I've had the circuit looked at by an amp builder nearby and he has confirmed that it's pretty much an exact replica. The name on the amp is Francis Campbell - the amp looks to have been built around 1974-76 based on the speakers and reverb tank.

Please tell me what you can! :D

I'll try and get some pictures up later!

Thanks! :fingersx:

I can tell you nothing about that amp or Francis Campbell. There are other date codes other than the speaker and reverb tank that might be more informative as to the approximate date of that build. Transformers and electrolytic capacitors for instance have date codes. The caps would almost assuredly been fresh at the time of the build.
