Hello,

I got a pair of these at an estate sale and can't find any information about when they were made or any specs at all.

They are 12" wedge floor monitors with tolex covering. Black with a black grille and the stylized "K" on the grille as well as on the back of the wedge.
They have a single 1/4" input and a switch that can be set to either "NORM" OR "LOW".

The label says: Kustom, Chanute, Kansas
Model 1-12+H
Serial# S151478
PAT. NO. 210,129

Sorry I can't upload an image because I don't have a URL. The images are on my computer and I'm too dumb to figure it out.

If someone out there recognizes them, I'd love to know what you know.

Thanks!

-hez

What I can tell you by the serial number is that those where made back in 1976.
If pleat who participates on this site reads this he may be able to provide more info for you.

This is from the Kustom catalog. It was paired with the Kustom III monitor amp.
The MN-12 Monitor is our latest addition.
Compact and designed for a variety of professional
applications, it is a 2-way system employing a
12" heavy-duty woofer and high frequency horn. The
unique design of the MN-12 cabinet permits maximum
versatility as it can be used at different angles on
stage. You can inter-connect two or more cabinets
together via the input jacks.
