A 1950 Cossor Melody Maker 501 in a very sorry state. On first glance, we thought it was a completely lost cause and it was very nearly consigned to the skip. At the very last moment, something made us reconsider and we thought we’d give it a go.
Boy are we glad we did. As you can see, after a little bit of TLC, the Bakelite case was restored to its former glory and the vintage valves sounded just as wonderful as they did back in the 1950s.
