That looks like a Little Bear G1 overdrive box. If so, it's a 12AX7b (basically a 12AT7). I've never played one of those in person but the demos I've seen sound awesome! Do some clips for us. :-)

Thanks Dave.

I’m not sure Paul. Just had a look and all my bad eyesight can make out is “N4”. Does that mean anything to you?

Looks great. What tube is that? 12AX7 or 12AU7?

Perfect Bear!
