    Yes, it came with a back panel that covers the amp- I removed it for help in ID’ing the amp.

    Also the pic of the top of the amp cut off two additional inputs.

    Bob Reinhardt was a very fine amp builder who used to have a shop in Bedford County Va. USA. About 20 miles from my home . Although I never went there I've heard from friends and others that his amps are very nice.
    I believe that your amp is basically similar to a Marshall 1974 circuit with master volume.
    Just curious what did you pay for it.
    Bob now builds supercharged car engines.

    If it is the 18- I think I paid a fair price. The master volume and treble pots are scratchy-

    It is a great sounding amp!

    I tried a head once and was more than impressed. Might have been one of the sweetest Marshall crunches ever and the power scaling was incredible. If you do a search on Reinhart and go back years you'll read some threads where owners consider it the best amp they ever owned.

    It was a sad (but good) day when he announced on the board that he was going to build engines instead of amps.

    3-12AX7s, 2-EL84s, EZ81 rectifier. Most likely 18 watter.
    As for the scratchy pots, spray those babies out with some DeOxit 5. Tube sockets too.

    You supposed to ask the forum before you buy it.

    Yep that is the 18. Cool amp. I've had two and sold both of them. Sound great for what they do. I'm not a Marshall style amp player I guess as I always sell those type of amps. If you dig that 18 watt Marshall thing, Reinhardt is in the top tier of that style of build.

    Thank you for this! How often does that solve the problem?

    It's pretty effective -- that, and ease of task -- that's why it's the first troubleshooting step in this case.

    Congrats on the amp, make 'er sing.

    If the pots are scratchy because they are dirty if will solve the problem every time. Spray the DeOxit in the back of the pot. Turn the knob 100 times.
