Acoustic Identification Problems

I have an old acoustic I found in a pump shed. I cleaned it up, it plays great. It's Japanese stamped on the back of the neck, and the sticker inside reads Knox Corp, Beverly Hills, California. I am simply looking for a little history on it. Any feedback would be much appreciated.
Thank You

Knox guitar

Hello,
I also recently acquired a Knox guitar with a black Knox label inside stating Beverly Hills Corp. with a number inside
19 865. Mine says Knox by the tuners. Mine has no Japanese markings. I found the following information on a search dealing with a Knox electric guitar but the name "Knox" was identical. Hope it helps.

"1960's Knox
It is a unknown Knox model 2 pickup Electric Guitar from the 1960's with 2 goldfoil pickups. I have a second Knox guitar that is very similar to this one but with a much larger pickguard.
The Teisco brand name stands for 'Tokyo Electric Instrument and Sound Company'. Teisco was founded in 1946 by renowned Hawaiian and Spanish guitarist Atswo Kaneko, and electrical engineer Doryu Matsuda. Teisco guitars sold in the United States were badged "Teisco Del Rey" beginning in 1964. Teisco guitars were also imported in the U.S. under several brand names including Silvertone, Jedson, Kent, Kingston, Kimberly, Tulio, Heit Deluxe and World Teisco. While guitars manufactured by Teisco were ubiquitous in their day, they are now very collectable."

ELK amplifier - tubes ?

Hi !

I have an ELK amplifier (it says "Viking Bass" on front)
It is in very bad condition, but I want to fix it.

It is a strange amp, using two push-pull output transformers
in parallel. Secundairy windings are connected in series.

It has a miniature 8-pin tubesocket next to the input (for 12a..7 ?), going to a miniature 8-pin socket wired for something like a 6bq5 (derived from the connections, wired as a triode), going into an interstage tranny, into two push-pull sections each on their own output transformer, wich outputs are wired in series.....

output valves could be EL34's or 6l6's

Has anybody seen this kind of amp before and know what tubes are used ?

Cheers,

Mark

Re: ELK amplifier - tubes ?

Mark,

It uses 4 6CA7 power tubes.

Here is a link to the schematic.

Re: ELK amplifier - tubes ?

Mark, you were right .It uses an el84 as a driver and 4 6ca7 output tubes. Tip: get rid of that driver tranny and use a normal phase inv.Check out the voltages on the 12ax7,s they are connected for 12v Ps had one here in South Africa
