Just when you thought Komets couldn't possibly get any more expensive...;)

In defense of Phil (Maverick Music) he has had some great stuff come through his store and has sold some of that at incredibly good prices ... although some other items of course .. are incredibly expensive :) (Like I'll never afford any of the Zemaitis stuff he carries)
He had some really affordable Eggle stuff recent and .. boy a long time back I bought a Greven White Lady from him at a price you wont believe.

I think it's definitely worth more - I think most of us would pay more for one that Ken tweaked...

There were 20 Komet 80s built, new they cost $200 more than a Komet 60, which reflects the extra cost of the different transformers and more expensive tubes.

Those 20 amps sold quickly.

So Hogy,

That amp listed above is just one of the run of 20, or is it a one-off that Ken did?

Thanks,
B

It's one of the 20 made. Most of them went through Ken's hands, he may or may not have "tweaked" it, I have no idea.

i wonder if ken was pre-medicated prior to tweaking that komet, hence the cost price difference, increase. :D

Does anyone remember the web address for the Trainwreck site...Trainwreck.com is not it and I typed trainwreckamps.com and it says that is under construction?

To twist the subject just a little. I know someone that Ken offered to tweak a Komet for. Is this something he does, or only something he does for friends? I don't want to bug the guy, but I'd love to have him massage one of my amps... Bob

Bob,

I think it depends a lot on the mood you catch him in. He tweaked some of the K80's but not all. He didn't do mine.
