The drivers are perfect and original. The tweeter horn lens and phase plug have been carefully removed, hand polished, and reinstalled.
All of the crossover components are new, with Mills resistors, Dayton 1% caps, and new inductors. New gold plated binding post for the input terminals.
New gold badges and new gold and brown striped grill cloth installed on the original front baffles.
The cabinets are brand new, built by a local high-end furniture maker. They are oak ply with oak veneer, book-matched all around, then hand rubbed with oil. The cabinets look really, really good. Internal dampening material reinstalled, more added to the side walls. New era-appropriate gold pin legs installed that are the same height as the original legs.
This is as close as you can get to a brand new pair of C38 Barons. They will sound just as JBL intended, have a great mid-century modern look, and are very efficient. Great with tube amps. I don't think you can find a nicer pair. Only me and the cabinet maker have even ever touched these speakers. Non-smoking home, no exposure to pets/children. Check the photos, these are close to mint.
No shipping, they're too heavy and I worry about damage. Pickup in Reno, Nevada. You can call Troy at 775 three five one 5552 with questions. Buyer pays PayPal fees, or we can arrange other payment.
