NOTES A nice lttle midget set with some similarities to the Ultra T401. Indeed, the service sheet confirms that the current somewhat oversize contol knobs are definately wrong, they should be the much smaller white dials as found on the T401.

The service sheet also shows that the dial text should be different. The existing one looks identical to the T401, though I'm sure it is original.
SERVICE DATA There was a copy of the "Trader" service sheet 754 on CD#1.
CURRENT STATE Lovely looking case but the underside is splitting. Internally it looks immaculate but there is a definate burning smell (and I havn't even switched it on!), due probably to the wax capacitor that has spewed wax all over the bottom of the cabinet !
WHERE FOUND A long time ago at the NVCF for £30. The set is no longer in my accumulation.
