Who had one of these as a kid? I think my sister did, but she's way older then me. :D
I had the tan colored plastic RCA deal with side speakers. I use to rock some "puppy love" on that rig.
This is from, I think, late 1974 when I was in Alaska with the AF. I think it was a 40wpc JVC integrated amp, Akai reel-to-reel and a Pioneer turntable. Unfortunately, I don't have a photo of the speakers but at that time, I think they would have been AR 2a's unless I still had my KLH 6's. The album was The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan.
around the corner from our house, love this kind of stuff.
If nothing else, country folks are patient.
That is a cool picture.
Thanks for posting the photo Jimbo, that looks like an Akai GX260D loaded with BASF tape. Very nice deck!
Here's the setup some time later. Not sure where the tape deck was then and unfortunately, I still don't have the A speakers in view. However the B speakers are the two "pictures" in the top center. They were some kind of styrofoam speaker that my father made cabinets for and then painted the speaker covers with outdoor scenes. Unfortunately, when I got moved from Alaska to Missouri, they were in one of the boxes that "disappeared" in transit.
Jack Daniels......on tour since 1866 ! :cheesygrin:
And johnny has been walking even longer.
How did the styrofoam speaks sound, i have read about these type, always wondered about sound.
They may have been the Poly-Planar speakers, you could get them in a few different patterns. Actually there is a company that makes just the transducers that can be attached to any flat surface, such as foam core. There's been a few experimenters who have made some pretty impressive designs.
I use to have this same model and color Kramer guitar. I miss it too.....
Some of the herd...
Picture taken just north of me Friday night by a woman in a photo club. Rare to see a meteor shooting through the northern lights.
Awesome photo, TRed. Amazing luck to have someone who knows how to photograph the lights there when a meteor passes.
