WTB. SET 45 stereo or monos, Anyone ?

Recommended Posts

I know someone has a 45 amp or a pair of mono's setting gathering dust :(  Please allow me to breath new Life into them :)  I have been watching the usual haunts for awhile now with no luck so thought why not ask here and see...................I am using a single driver  at 96 efficiency and the 45 would be PERFECT, I can pay or perhaps I have something you are looking for to trade  Lets talk

Both look interesting but I would prefer to deal with a known source and product. If Buy from them and has hum or other issue I simply dont want the hassels

 

I do appreciate the input though

Apples to Oranges my friend. I have had a couple pairs of VRD's over the years and they are superb amps in there area of expertise. But I am looking for the 45 Single End Triode for a reason.  (also I can no longer afford VRD's, being on a fixed income :()  I currently Have a tube PP and and like it very much very full sound with solid authoritative bass Mids are liquid and highs are very nice. I also Have the 300B SET amps they sound very good as well more refinement. The 45 tube is / was just my Favorite SET amp for years before injury forced sell of everything I owned. I am in no hurry I would like to find a Korneff 45, Burgess 45, or Welborne monos something of that ilk. I am not hurting In fact just the opposite I have absolutely no reason for wanting another amp other than nostalgia. The options I have in house perform wonderfully

 

I do appreciate the offer, Craigs amps are great

Hey I know someone looking for a push pull with around 50 / 60 WPC, Shoot me your price a pic and your contact and I will get in touch with him, If he likes the idea I will give him your contact info, He just demo'ed my Dynaco st70 and liked sound but wanted more power. VRD should be straight up his alley. He has the $$$ if he wwill come off it :)

I think somewhere $2.2k or so plus the cost of shipping is pretty fair for an upgraded pair... 

 

I'd love to keep them, and probably will if they do not sell because they have already been amortized, but if they went to a good appreciative home that wouldn't be such a bad thing

I will let you know something tomorrow SCHU

 

Oh if I were only made of $$$$$$$$$$$$$, I would buy the VRD's myself...........................Could I get my VA Loan for audio Equipment. Since my departure from the service in 1989 I have yet to take advantage of a single veterans benefit I wonder........................(Setting here scratching my head)

Might an Amps and Sound "Bigger Ben" fit the request?

Sorry I am trying to get back to a 45 set.

In my opinion this is the one you want for sure!!!

I spoke with the seller of the Korneff Clone He also has a DeJaVu 45 he is selling. I am currently in discussions with 2 forum members concerning Welborne, and Cary 45's

 

If those fall through I will revisit the Korneff, I had an actual Korneff  several years ago, which I enjoyed but was in a permanent upgrade mode and foolishly let it go
