    I have acquired a 'blank'* Sheldon Amps TrueTone head chassis with front and back panel markings (in white) screened onto a blue background. I am curious to know what amp this comes from (if anyone can help with this please?).

    The control panel markings are Input, Vol, Compass, High, Middle, Low, Special Sauce, Freeze, Master and some on-off/stdby switch holes and a lamp hole, and the back panel has holes for a Mains voltage selector, mains and HT fuses, Triode/pentode (switch?), Impedance selector, 2 x speaker jack holes and Bias TPs and "Range" and (Hum?)"Balance" TPs and a footswitch jack hole.

    On top, there are holes for what looks like 4 x octal and 3 x noval sockets as well as PT and OT mounting holes for upright (X mount) xformers.

    Anyone got any idea what True Tone head chassis this comes from? and where I might get a schematic or some info on it please?

    * there is no serial # stamped on the back panel (altho' there is evidently a space for such when the time comes)

    TIA

    Well, I asked Mark @ Sheldon for a copy of schematic and layout info, which he has kindly offered to provide to me provided that I sign a disclaimer saying that I will not claim the amp as originating from Sheldon (which I have duly sent back to him) I guess time will tell. (I also promised to keep the schematic a secret)

    well done to them. Always worth trying the manufacturer out first. Most try to help
