    I had a meeting with Rick Skillman today and I asked him when they were expecting the Golds. He said they were in production now. So we should be seeing them sometime in the near future. I can't wait until they get here. I am going to get one for my TW inspired amp, and I know it will sound great with my Stromberg Carlson model 33. BTW, Ricks got some chops.

    I've only got two chops, but I can play them three ways!:D

    It was good meeting with you and thanks for having me over. Both amps sounded fantastic and I'm sure you're on your way to success! The tone of that little EL84 whipper snapper is still in my head, and the 6V6 model was a blast as well.:dude

    Catch you soon.

    Regards,
    Rick

    I am working up a 4XEL84 build and I think these Golds are going to be the ticket.

    Tell em' to hurry Rick.

    I ordered mine today from Tonetronix in Ohio. I believe they are out of stock of 8 ohmers, but do have 16 ohmers. $279 with free shipping in case anyone wants to know. Word is that a lot of these are coming with the magnet cover (bell cover) loose on the back. It was suggested to me that the sticker on the cover be removed with a heat gun, then tighten the bolt and replace the sticker. Just a heads up.

    For $279 I think you should be able to put the speaker in your cab and start playing. Not removing the label, tightening the bell cover and then reattaching the label that you hopefully didn't tear when you removed it.
    I know it's not a big deal but where's their quality control? But I'll still be buying one anyway.

    That was my thought reading that. Hope they get it straightened out. Bad form.
