Probably been done before but oh well. Post your vintage Jansen goodness here.

I just won what is either a 6/40 or 6/20. It has a 6/twenty face plate but the auction says it's a forty. Comes with a holden 2x10 cab with Etone gold 50 speakers. This means I don't have to buy a tremolo pedal! 8) however i may be in the market for a reverb cos it has none. Not bad for $430 and it's in nelson!

That's a beauty. I've thought about getting a blue cab for my jansen if I keep it.

In other news , does anyone know their way around a Jansen impedence selector? the one that you poke a little wire in to choose. I want to try out the 6/40 with a celestion gold but don't want to blow anything up. Cheers .

If there is someone who can do it, I'd make my amp available for non invasive mapping. I think it would be a cool project to be involved with. :thumbup:

I can certainly do that. Did the same with my Poweray. Let's see what is on the web first though.

Yes browsed that site a while ago for a 6/20 diagram. Could not find it there and it does not mention the 4/12.

4-12s are rare. I've only ever seen 2. Consider they were made in 1964, just as full stacks were taking over the world. Poor little fellas never stood a chance.

Just a thought - the current Jansen company still provides schematics for their old gear, when they exist. They charge a fee ($10 maybe?) but will email you a scanned copy. If it's something you're really after, I'd definitely check with them. Not that the 60's circuits are difficult to reverse-engineer, but it's not always as easy as you'd think to identify what's original and what's been modified over the subsequent 50+ years!

no help with the impedance selector thing? I want to try it out with the gold before I sell it but it's currently set to 16 ohms. No idea what pins are for 8 ohm..
