Bell & Howell Film-O-Sound Chassis with PT & OT

Post by Blackburn » Sat Mar 25, 2017 7:03 pm

I bought this a while back, wanting to build something into it, but I'm swamped on other builds and figured one of yous might have interest. I took the time to gut it thoroughly. Nothing looked like it went out on the inside prior to gutting it, but those wax caps were nasty looking, due to age. It'll include the bottom plate and hardware, except for one of the bottom plate mounting screws. Transformers are untested but look good. Everything was intact and looked good so I'm confident but it is sold as is. PM me with any questions please.

$100 plus shipping sent Paypal to friends/family. I'll insure it and include the tracking #.

Thanks for looking!

David

Nice work--you've done all the hard stuff, cleaning the thing out!

Do you have the original knobs? Those are unique and valuable.

Aaron, I actually did find the knobs.... I think I'd put them aside to use for something else. They have some weight to them. Are they really worth a significant amount? I didn't think twice about them being valuable.

Marcus, I'm not familiar with Mills, but the At Mars Specialist amps were these chassis rebuilt. They're pretty popular chassis so I wouldn't be surprised if there are a couple dozen people offering these things rebuilt. They're really small and can probably be one of the smallest 15w amplifiers.

yep just had a look and it's the one that Blake uses. It was converted by Bill Krindard of Two Rock for him :D

Blake Mills is worth looking into. He's quite good, with attention to tone.
