    [SOLD SOLD SOLD]

    I'm having a hard time letting these go, if you know of Gary's work, you know the quality of these amps. But, alas, I need to raise some cash.

    I'm not listing them on eBay, mainly because I don't know exactly what to ask. Why? Because there's a problem with these two units. On the pre-amp, one channel started intermittently cutting in and out. I know next to nothing about the inner workings of these things, but my guess is a solder joint.

    At the same time the amp stopped working all together, it just wouldn't come on. My guess on that is the power supply. I say that because when I first bought the amp it had a huge external power supply that plugged into the wall. Gary said he still hadn't been successful designing a dependable power supply when using a battery, but that he'd upgrade it when he did. About 3 months later I got the call and he converted the thing into a 15w/channel battery powered tube amplifier! It sounded fantastic until one day it wouldn't turn on. By that time Gary was getting too sick to deal with fixing them, so I put both units on the shelf.
    I always meant to fix them but never got around to it.

    So I'm posting this to see if anyone is interested in taking them off my hands. Asking $1,600 or make me a reasonable offer. I fully understand there will probably be expense involved in fixing them so I'll take that into consideration.

    There seems to be some conflicting info on the original prices on these pieces. I'll update if necessary, in the meantime, if you're interested just contact me and we can go from there.

    Just a heads up, you need to post a price. I know this is an odd sale but you've been upfront with the condition of these items and should ask for something specific.
