Beautiful amps, upgraded tubes and caps ... with spare tubes.
Purchased new Jan 2017.
Over $6000 in upgrades: tubes and caps and internal wiring for reliability. Upgraded tubes, $3300 ... selected for best overall tone in any application.
$1600 for 4 upgraded Power Tubes in very good condition. Psvane WE845 Western Electric replica $1500 in Emission Labs 300 BXLS. These are 75-80% good. http://www.emissionlabs.com/datasheets/EML300B-XLS.html http://www.tubeaudiostore.com/emission-labs.html https://psvanetube.com/wordpress/product/psvane-we845-western-electric-replica-tubes-pair/
The 300B in this amp lasts many, many years in this driver application.
Probably 5-10 years remain if you are a casual listener.
2 Svetlana Winged =C= EL34/6CA7, should last a decade (+2 new Winged =C= Svetlana spares included) 2 NOS TungSol 6SL7s, should last a decade (+2 NOS TungSol spares included)
Over $3000 in capacitors plus a few resistors upgraded. Work done by Jeff Glowacki at Sonic Craft in Texas. Internal power wiring upgraded for greater longevity. (2) Cary Audio external bias meters are included ($200 value), more accurate than the meters on the amp.
This example is better than any 211FE on the market, better than stock. Used daily for 3.5 years on Grammy award-winning recordings in a clean
mastering studio in Los Angeles (The Greatest Showman Soundtrack, Shania
Twain, Liam Gallagher, Green Day and hundreds of other records) Original boxes and crates, of course Photos in the most harsh light possible, makes dust explode visually. Minor abrasions on the bottom plate, from brass footers used (also for sale).
