Question
QUESTION: Hello:
 I have an old Univox Bass amp BT-505 that I am going through.  It had a blown speaker and I'm testing and replacing some of the condensers and transistors. I just can't seem to find any info on this amp, ie..manual/schematic. I think it was made mid 60s. Anyone anywhere know anything about these amps?  Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Craig

Thanks,
