  1. That's a good looking Dynaco 70 and a super score! Here's a pic of a stainless chassis Dynaco 70 that I bought off of the bay last year.
  2. The seller is about a 15 minute drive from my house. I am thinking about the P90 GT's.

  4. Not mine and they have it listed at $1,800. https://longisland.craigslist.org/msg/d/southold-1980-hamer-sunburst-electric/7114525983.html
  5. My preamp is the JF 200, which, except for silkscreening, is identical to this one here: https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/rockford-fosgate-rf200-pre-amp-143057216 It's a biamping preamp that I bought new and used with kit amps that I built. 2 soundvalves tube 40 watt monoblocks up top, with a dynaco 410 for bass. Add in a Rotel cd player, Sony ES cassette deck, Denon Turntable and a Tandberg Tuner with custom built speakers, and that was my poor man's high end system of the 1990's. Thanks for looking into that, and as always, JohnnyB is the Best!.
  6. I bought this amp from Audio Advisor a couple of years ago at $400, and returned it. The NuForce sounds great, but it did not match well with my Hafler preamplifier and I didn't want to replace that, too. The issue that caused me to return it was, an impedance mismatch between the preamp output and the amplifier input made it impossible to play the amp at low volume. With the volume set below 1 - at the first click and as low as it could go on the preamp, the MUSIC WAS LOUD, as if the volume was on 3 or 4. If not for this, I would have kept it. The volume issue is mentioned in online writeups about this amp. In retrospect, to gain full control over the volume, I could have tried soldering resistors in line to the L and R channel interconnects to match the preamp out impedance to the NuForce high gain inputs. An easy fix for those who are handy with a soldering iron, but not what one expects to have to do when they purchase a new amp. For those who purchase this amp and don't run into the volume issue, it is a great deal.
  7. 2 pots marked Hamer FR8526. Serial numbers are close R1378939 and R137893 with the last number covered by solder in the second pic. Edited to add that I just checked my red Hamer Special, which I know has Hamer 500k pots. They are also Hamer FR8526.
  8. Fedex left a package at the front door: Thanks John and the MannMade USA Folks, along with Tim, Matt and everyone at the HFC who had a hand in making this run of sustainblocks a reality.
  9. This is the second time in 24 hours that I am tempted to pull the trigger on a Hamer. The other was that Hog Standard.
  10. A pic of the Cam Jr. next to the BCR Jr.and a couple of others that I still have.
  11. I remember that one. IMHO, it plays as great as it looks and the tortoise binding blends the top edge to the sides perfectly. I'm glad that I did not see this fs ad until this morning, or it would be on its way to NY. Congrats to the new owner!
  12. Small thanks for your invaluable assistance with the sustainblock bridges.
  13. Posting HFC'er MannMade USA's pre-order link here in the FS forum for those who may not have seen it. Posted Monday at 09:11 PM Okay... here is a link for complete BRIDGES and sets of 6 SADDLES At this time it is PRE-ORDER only, but if demand is high enough, I will stock these on a regular basis. LINK to PRE-ORDER - https://store.guitarvaultusa.com/SearchResults.asp?Search=hamer&Submit= It was originally posted towards the bottom of the third page of this thread: https://www.hamerfanclub.com/forums/topic/83362-if-not-an-original-sustain-block-bridge-what/page/3/
  14. I'm in for 2 bridges and 2 sets of saddles. John, thanks so much!
