Product Description

The 437 C is the upgraded version of the Altec 436 C of EMI / Beatles fame. The 438C has the addition of a transformer-input microphone preamp (with a very modest 90dB of gain!).

Working well but we will sort out the "work" that has been done on the two large caps. They will be replaced, and the veroboard and large quantity of glue removed!

Valves all tested and good.

Condition

Good with plenty of signs of having lived a full life. Knobs are not all original. The issue with the capacitors on the rear will be dealt with during service. There is some cracking on the edge of the meter cover but it seems solid. See photos for more information.

Voltage Information

117/120v model. A step-down transformer is required in the UK/EU. We do not recommend using cheap generic Chinese mains transformers and can supply a high quality UK-made unit if required.

Tax

For sales in UK/EU the price will include 20% VAT. If you have an EU VAT number (outside the UK) you can enter it at check out to have VAT removed.
