i need to pick some brains on what speakers my 3-15 cab has..all i can find is cts on the speaker plug plate the speakers say kustom electronics.. the #'s on the large square magnets are 5815113...16ohm.....137-7104...
and 038-0004-00.... on the cone i think i read t503-g3... does anyone know if they were made by kustom or are they another brand built by another company for kustom ..thanks for any info you can fill in here ... shadow.... also i'm kinda dumb on the kustoms .. i assume this is gonna be a guitar cab and not a bass cab ?? i have looked thru some old adds and don't find one that gives the 3 15's cab as being for guitar thanks again ...

Hello. You have a CTS loaded bass cab. The 137 in 137-7104 is the CTS factory code and the 7104 means the fourth week of 1971. CTS speakers were also used in some Fender amps too, and for a bit of trivia, i heard/think CTS stands for Central Telephone Service; go figure. They sound pretty good for guitar too if you crank the treble on the amp you are using. Kustom did make 3-15 guitar cabs as well as PA and bass cabs, so it was a fairly widespread format. Good luck!

Wanted to do new post but there was no submit button in that mode. I've typed and lost 2 "new topic" posts so I'll get to the point. On my Frank head with verb and trem 2 purple wires that exit the huge transformer have come loose from what I think is the bridge rectifier where there are 2 terminals that have the same color (purple) wires attached. The loose wires are the right length to reach these terminals but which goes where? I have a shematic but can't see this on it. Please reply
if you can help. Thanks, Jim (teleman)
