From vintagehofner.com:
From Selmer's Blood And Custard era: 5 watts with tremolo. Valves: EF86 (1), ECC83 (1), EL84 (1) & EZ80 (1) into a 10" speaker. Size 14.3/4" x 13.1/4" x 6.1/4", control panel inset into the top of the amp with 2 inputs and 4 knobs (volume, tone, tremolo speed & depth) & pilot lamp.
The Standard (TV8), without tremolo had been established a year or so earlier, hence the "New" suffix for the later one fitted with tremolo.

Tech Report:

  • Valves are all good, all Mullard – EF86, ECC83, EL84 and EZ80 rectifier.

  • Tremolo - a good strong trem; at high depth settings it will thump a little. Tremolo jack socket for footswitch added – originally on a phono.

  • The way the trem is designed they have used a fair bit of high pass  filtering to remove thumping so there’s not a huge amount of bottom end; the smallish speaker doesn’t help with this either but it sounds pretty good.

  • Once again, the grounding was not good, and they have put the input sockets too close to the mains switch. There’s always going to be some buzz from having the switch on the tone control, but adding some shielding between this and the input sockets has helped a lot.

  • The back panel was very warped; some steam and a couple of hours being pressed flat has sorted this.

  • I fashioned new catches as two of them were missing.
