Easy, insertion fees. Start the bidding at $10,000 and you pay a big fee up front, leave it at a dollar, no fee. Though since there's a reserve on it, the seller got charged a big fee (percentage of reserve) anyway.Originally posted by Boomer
This is the same one that's listed in the Amp Emporium. I'll never understand why someone who wants $30k+ for an amp would start the bidding at a dollar.
That's probably why D- doesn't want anyone to see it.Originally posted by jonny guitar
Looks just like the inside of my late 60's Traynor, and the outside is pretty ugly. I realize that the price is for the tone but I expected more.
Good eyes Jackie! I think that the final driver is actually long-tail PI as the cathode is shared. Wonder why he didn't go whole-hog and use the dual CFs like the SVT does? Perhaps it was loud enough already...Originally posted by Jackie Treehorn
That's a pretty interesting amp. I haven't gotten real in depth, but it looks like the phase inverter is a cathodyne inverter into a pair of drivers. Like a capacitor coupled SVT (no cathode follower).
Hey, Chris. You're probably right. I'm going have to take a closer look at those pictures. I'm not sure why he wouldn't go the full cathode follower route. From what I can determine on that power transformer it's 410 volts at 400ma 6.3 at 8 amps. So there's probably just enough heater current for another tube. But do you think 400 ma is enough for a quad of 6550's potentially running into ab2 if they were coupled through a cathode follower?Originally posted by csanford
