Hey. I got an old Univox amp from my grandfather. I've had it for a while, and really like it's clean tone a lot, which has compelled me to try and fix it up. However, I dont have the money to bring it into a shop (it's ancient anyway, so i doubt anyone would be able to). Is ANYONE familiar with this brand of amp? Mine has a Spring Reverb, a (broken) tremelo, a tone knob and a volume knob, 3 instrument imputs, a fuse knob in the back (dont know how it works or if it works), and 2 other imputs, one marked "reverb", the other marked "tremelo". It has one speaker, a mesh front, and is tall. I dont know the model number (anyone know how to find out?).


I read that it's most likely a variation of the U65RN, with 4 knobs itead of 5, and was probably made in 1971.

Even if u arent familiar with it, any suggestions as to what i should do and get? the speaker works fine, but some of the electronics (the reverb and tremelo for start) arent working.

In a word, "HELP!"

Univox made a lot more than just one amp. You might start with being specific about which amp you have and what your (electronic) skills are.

I did some research. It's apparently a variation of the U65RN (http://www.univox.org/pics/amps/ssamp.jpg). I couldnt find anything exact, though.

And as for electronic skills, I'm not an EXPERT, but i know alot of electronic stuff, and have friends who know alot too.
