    I was driving down the street and i caught out of the corner of my eye what appeared to be an old tube amp chassis in the pile of junk for trash pickup. I drove around the block and checked it out and it was an old rusty fender amp of some kind. It had a couple of 6v6 tubes that were smashed but it had a holy shizz load of preamp tubes.

    They are all labeled "made for fender by RCA" one is marked 12ax7 one 12at7 and five are labeled 7025 (low noise 12ax7s right?) I'm pretty happy about them considering it cost me nothing. :)

    What model was the "old rusty" Fender? Did you keep the chassis?

    yeah they need a good cleaning really.

    All of the markings were rusted off so IDK what it was, I just saw a little fender logo painted by the cord. It had no front panel it just had 4 multi prong plugs. the back panel had some ins and outs and a knob (which i also grabbed) but again it was so rusty i didnt see anything. I was going to take the whole thing but the wiring and caps and stuff were thrashed. I am pretty sure I got all of the goodies.

    lol, no thanks I am going to add these to my stash o' toobz. Im sure they will find a place somewhere :)
