Happy birthday guitar amp!

HH IC100 guitar amp

It is my guitar amp’s 40th birthday!

I trying to find some information about my HH IC100 guitar amp to undo the damage that those pesky Sweet Nothings did to it and I found out that they started making them in 1971 and then in 1972 they added a stage/studio switch and lighting on the knobs (neither of which my amp has) so that makes it 40 years old. I decided that today is its birthday so happy birthday amplifier!

For its birthday it would like a reverb/vibrato foot switch to turn those back on again. For Christmas it would like a new power lead as the one that its got is quite knackered. I think I’ve found somewhere on the web that sells foot switches but not sure about the power lead…

It used to belong to my Granddad who was a country and western singer and he built the speaker for it so it’s kind of a family heirloom.
