One of the first units I posted on here was a Bland Radio PA/Record player. https://vintage-radio.com.au/default.asp?f=5&th=41
It was also the first unit that got me back into Valve Public Address and Fully Restored.
Since then I have bought 85+ amps inc. 5 Bland Units, 3 of which are in this picture. (coming)
The middle one is the one everyone has seen, the one on the left is a 1965 Valve Stereo Record Player along with
matching Bland speaker that came out of a school.
The one on the right is my latest, a 1961 Full Bland school PA system, with a full history from a primary in Adelaide.
The Bland Units not pictured are a 1972 Portable amp and a 1965 Radio/Turntable/PA similar to the middle unit currently
under going restoration.

You have been busy!

And you must have a big storage facility.

No just very crammed into several rooms and some in a garage.
A lot of amps are around mantel radio size or just a bit bigger so that helps
Photos of the Bland's are coming Smile
