I've tried a lot of EL84 amps (Vox AC30CC, Matchless HC-30, Bad Cat Black Cat, etc) and this has been my favorite. Chimey, bright, and beautiful. I've decided that I prefer bigger bottled amps. The amp is in 9/10 condition and has the latest updates (2011 specs). Includes the EF86 option (selling with a NOS Mullard EF86 installed). This look is as close as you'll get to the Vox style from Valvetech anymore. $1099 shipped and Paypaled. I will consider trades of bigger bottled amps.
