    I recently found a Bell "Hi Fidelity Model 2300" amplifier, but am unable to find any literature or specs for it - does anyone out there in good old Karma Land have any info on this? I (hopefully) attached two photos of it (front and back) which may help identify it a bit better.

    Thanks much for your assistance.

    Best Regards, Guy.

    Nice little bell monophonic amp, probably uses a pair of 6v6 in push-pull.

    It's right on the cusp before Bell went to stereo gear and dropped mono. I believe the reason there is so little info out there is that it was only offered for one year, possibly less. It shares some styling cues with later Bell products such as the 3030 & 6060 Carillon but nothing with the earlier mono gear. I've only seen one other & never seen it in any vintage catalog such as Allied, Newark, etc.

    Great catch, I commend you for your patience. As cool as it is having ready access to the RS catalogs, the interface drives me crazy.

    Nice unit. One thing's for sure---that AC cord's gotta go. I see it is frayed where it enters the back of the cabinet.

    My Bell 6060 is in the 1960 RS Catalog, so I figured it would be a few years before that.

    I realize that this is an old thread, but I just picked up a Bell 2300. Does anyone know where I can get a schematic for it?

    TIA,

    Terry
