Solid Coco-bola/gold plated amp porn

Dang it Craig. I'm at work. [:o]

Very beautiful. I hope I can afford something like that some day. Not convinced I'd notice the difference in sound but tube amps can be sooooooo pretty.

I know enough to know I cant' afford them. At least not now. I am hoping to find a nice tube amp that can be serviced to be good and well safe to use for not a lot of coin. No such luck so far. My brother has a HUGE old tube amp that went with an old church organ. I need to take some pics to see if it's worth anything to anybody, or if it's at least worth keeping. I think he said at Dad's estate sale somebody did want to buy just it. The organ came with a couple of large speakers mounted on heavy plywood. Also, as I was intrigued by a speaker cabinet, called a Rota-Tone also camw with the organ. I think he finally got a church to haul away with the Rota-Tone but not sure if he ever got rid of the speakers or they got trashed. Or they took them. May still be in shed but no longer attached to plywood but I think they are gone. The heavy ugly beast of an amp remains. Probably junk by now sitting in shed.... but I really should find out for him. If it's worth $10 he can use it. If it's junk and somebody wants to go get it (I could probably get to Indy such as future Pilgrimages) better scavenged than land filled. I'll be up there Saturday so will try to take some pics.

Over the weekend I was on an archeological reading expedition looking for information in the old threads and ran accross this thread showing what looks like the same set of amps (these seem like a one-of-a-kind set). Also, in the thread I stumbled upon this cool [H]picture showing what is underneath the bling.[Y] Sure is a great looking (and I'm sure great sounding) set of amps.[8-|]

I also saw this photo of the amp completely undressed and in the buff,[ :D] showing its V-Caps and many other nice parts. I would love to hear these some day.

Those amps have a start up mode and they are playing "Barry White"

"Come, here Babe to my zebra skin rug...., You know I'm your drug, Lay your body down next to mine, My tubes will make you shine, Feel the shiver up your spine"

Wow is it getting hot in here..... I need a cold shower////// LOL

Beautiful work by a master!!!!!
