Default Grampian 506 Tuner Amp

Please
Hi Everyone
I'm searching for a Grampian 506 Valve Tuner Amplifier
I used to own one of these and after replacing the Output Bias Resistor and Capacitor I found the output was brilliant
Unfortunately it went missing during my relocation to Cornwall
Does anyone know where I can find another one
I'm a Pensioner so, unfortunately funds are a bit low
However I would like to purchase another if the price is right
Please can anyone help
Thanks a lot
Sharon

Welcome to the forum Sharon, might have one somewhere in the shed, will look, however doubt it will be in working order and will need fettling.

Andy.

Hi Andy
Thanks for your reply for my request
I would certainly be interested in the Grampian if you could dig it out
How much would you want for it and would it be possible for you to post it to Cornwall
Thanks again
Sharon

Hi Andy
As an afterthought I'm quite happy to pay for the postage

Hi Sharon, this is the amp/tuner, see pics. The lettering is not very distinct but am pretty sure it says "506" and as you see it isn't in the best condition. Have sent you a PM.

Andy.

Edit, here's two pics of valves, though not in the right places and knobs I have; one is missing and one is broken, there are a few there in the pic that might do. Failing that ask on the forum, someone might have spares.

Default Grampian 506

Having gone as far as I can on the 506, I feel that it's not worth spending any more time and money on it
Does anyone know where I can find another Grampian 506
In the meantime I will keep this one for spares in the event of me finding another 506

Default Grampian 506

Ok please can anyone help me
I'm searching for a Grampian 506 Tuner Amplifier
I received one about three weeks ago
However it needs a lot of work to restore it to working order
I have decided to keep it for spares on receipt of another Grampian 506 and maybe restore it at a future date

There's no need to keep posting about this. Forum members are aware of your requirement.
