6CA7s in a "Mark 3"??
I've been playing guitar for 34 years and I've never heard of a "Mark 3" amplifier. This thing has four 6CA7s in it driving 2-12" speakers. Anyone heard of this amp? Sources for more info?

Is the amp itself called a "MARK 3"? If so I haven't heard of it but perhapes Greywater, RG, or Richie might have had one come across the bench before.  
What other tubes are in the amp? What controls are on it? Give us some more info Jim! (ha, ha)  
I believe the 6CA7's are premap tubes...are they 8 pin octal tubes?

Alright! It IS a Traynor! The 6CA7 is supposed to be a replacement for the EL34. According to the Vintage Guitar price guide the guy wants $100 too much for it. Oh well. Thanks, guys!! You're awesome.

Speed nailed it on the head!!! Traynors are pretty sounding amps and fairly easy to mod. How much was he aking?
