While reconditioning this one I found that it had as shown in photo a complement of 5 tubes. A 12BE6, 12BA6, 35W4, 50C5 and 12SQ7 (8 pin). However in my riders schematic, it shows the same tubes except the 12SQ7 it shows a 12AV6 a 7 pin tube. So I ordered a Sams schematic which also shows 5, 7 pin tubes. The tubes do the same thing electronically however it does show that sometimes to save money, Use up old stock, or because of availability problems manufactures would use a substitute part something you have to watch for. Also there is no substitute for a good tube manual and take a schematic or manual with a grain of salt.

When cabinet material or color differences are apparent or suspected in donated photos, I have included additional photos of certain model numbers. Due to time constraints, I must rely entirely on the accuracy of information supplied by contributors with their photographs. As such, no guarantee is made that the model numbers presented here are correct.
