    I've embarked on another cruise, waiting on the cardboard and the new smells it brings...

    High Powered Tweed Twin clone.

    Weber CV123 Alnico's.

    Fancy lacquered cab from the Bay.

    Question for those who have handled an original, how much did the PT weigh and what were the dimensions?

    My apologies if my Gugle-Fu failed...

    Handled one, but didn't take any scientific data on it. They're pretty massive though, enough that a support strap to help keep it from distorting the chassis in a combo amp would be strongly recommended. They produce a lot of twisting force hanging out the back of the chassis like Fender mounted them.

    Honkin' big.

    I've never had either transformer out of my '58. But, both transformers in it are big and heavy. Gimme a bit to get some coffee in me and I'll measure them both.
