I got this amp a while ago. There isn't any identification as to brand or anything anywhere inside or outside the cab or the amp. Just this one logo. Does anyone have any idea of the brand of amp/cab this is? It certainly seems like a set.
I'm assuming this is probably something purchased through a catalog or department store (like Sears) in the 70's. I can take more pictures of anything if it will help. Just trying to get some info on this and even better would be a schematic as it needs a little work on the reverb.

I don't think it's a Sears/Silvertone because the graphics and switches are different.

It's likely a Montgomery Ward amp made by Valco. Sometimes they are labeled "Airline", as this was MW's line, as Silvertone was for Sears.

Wow! Those look very similar. Construction-wise at least. I'll do some more searching. Thank you for point me in this direction. Those are all tube amps and the one I have is solid state so I'm thinking it's a later version possibly. 70's?
