Today I got to see a stunning piece of history. This Bronson amp dated 1949, still with the original shipping box. It spent some of it's life in New Mexico at the Aloha Conservatory of Music. Apparently this school was affiliated with the Bronson brand. I would love to know more! American musical instrument manufacturing is a fascinating subject for me. Especially when it is tied to schools.
Nothing to really write here, the amp isn't NOS, but it's as clean as one can be for a 72 year old amplifier. The customer wants to use it so sadly I needed to change every capacitor in the house. All of the wax caps were leaking badly (yes even with little use, they likely leaked right out of the Valco factory!). And I also replaced the electrolytic caps and the power cable at the customers request. Easy job. These are so well made.
So the insides are all "before" pictures for your amusement.
