Lots of nice gear!

 

I'm on the scent of a matching Altec 606 cabinet.....so off to the hunt.

 

Emails sent.

 

Best to you

Hi LeeBruce,

There is a great Canadian site that also lists USA sales. It’s called Canuck Audio Mart , or we call it (CAM)
At the very bottom there is another set of listings which is USA sales

On the side bar you can click advanced search and type in specific gear you are looking for etc.

Easy site to navigate and lots of stuff

Hope that helps

MacMan

Hey @RandyH 000  got a bit delayed in getting back to you.

 

Got busy....found another Altec 606 cabinet....and bought it.

 

I really don't want to sell my Fisher X-202 right now.  Granted it has just been sitting on a shelf for a couple years....but perhaps one day, I'll get to fixing it up.

 

I will post some pics for you.  It has not been cleaned....but looks pretty good.

Altec 606 by Home Craft.  Around 1953?  Mahogany.

I'm not sure about this, but believe that Hillcraft made these Altec cabinets on the West Coast...and Homecraft made them on the East Coast...

 

The Verde...and those type of speakers cabs were made in Glendale California...by a furniture company called Glenn....

I know where one of these is.  It was purchased with a Tannoy Silver (iirc) in it.

Hi @Godataloss  Do you think it might be for sale...?  I couldn't afford the Tannoy Silver....but perhaps he'd like to sell the cabinet...

 

Or even better....Buy mine.  I am sure the one pictured above is a genuine Altec 606.  I believe these on the East Coast were manufactured by HomeCraft Furniture Co. in New Jersey.

 

Those sold on the West Coast....were manufactured by Hill Craft Furniture Company.  I believe this to be the case....

 

I did buy a second one.....but now have regrets.....it is not the same as mine.

 

Could have a discussion about these if anyone is interested.....

 

Back to the Fisher X-202.  Was reading up on it...and didn't realize it was held in such high regard....suppose to be a nice amp.

 

Mine came out of a console.....so it says Executive on the front left.....instead of the Model #.  And no case.

 

Looks to be original....but I haven't looked inside.
