Hi Red16v,

Thanks for the reply.

I’ll keep this brief, as it’s heading off topic and subject.

I hadn’t investigated ‘A band called O’, however looking at the Wiki entry I can see the refence to Chris White. I figure it could be worth reaching out.

As regards the stencil and going at a tangent, I suppose I hadn’t really taken much notice of the stencil on the bottom of the amplifier as its somewhat faded, but with some enhancement using Photoshop I could better see it and I felt it worthy of a mention in the OP. See attached pictures.

What I find interesting was the comment in Wiki “they [Band Called O] had no chart success; but were a popular live act, who toured Britain and Europe” … The same can be said of its previous owner Barry Martin, Guitarist of The Hamsters as the Hamsters also extensively gigged around the UK Britain and Europe with limited chart success. This amplifier was mainly used in his own music den.

I looked after Barry's amps, pedals, and rack equipment.
