    This amp was given/long-term-loaned to me from some very good friends of mine and I really don't know anything about it, other than it sounds very good.
    help me out!

    sorry for the monolithic pictures.
    apparently it will reach good money on ebay, but I don't really want to sell it.

    Designed and made the guy from the BTO's. Some neats designs too. Canadian fellow. Still makes them? Think he wrote a book about them or amps in general. Cool looking amp.

    It is a Garnet...Says so on the ID plate. It should be a fine amp.

    Looks like a single 6V6, maybe Class A, little monster. Crank it up and record some clips!

    I think the Garnet gentleman passed away not long ago. Looks like his take on a VibroChamp type of amp with a larger speaker. The amps have a great rep and with one power tube must be Class A.
