Joule Electra VZN-80 Tube Amplifier [Expired]


no longer for sale

Rare opportunity to purchase this tube amplifier that hardly ever appears on the pre-owned market. This Joule Electra VZN-80 MKV (Emerald) Stereoblock brings the heat (and the power)!
This is a really gorgeous sounding OTL amp and uses the famous 6C33C tube. Power, finesse, and sweetness are the attributes of this OTL amp. The BAT amps use the same power tubes but the Joule has more immediacy and tube bloom imo.

There are a 2 minor issues that I need to bring to the attention of a prospective buyer. My asking price reflects those issues as follows:

ISSUE 1 . The Variac (smaller unit) is used to power up and power down the amp. It works as it should... except for when the knob is turned, it becomes slightly mis-aligned as seen in the photo.

REMEDY: I spoke to Rich at Signature Sound, who is an authorized seller/ repairs on Joule equipment and he advised that the variac could be easily repaired if desired, but not necessary. He advised that to replace the variac with a new one would cost $300. Any repair should cost much less.

ISSUE 2 one of the black caps that covering the bias indicator stem is missing. (see amp photo #8) It still works as it should, the cap is more decorative.

REMEDY Buy replacement from Signature Sound

I originally priced this amp at $2800, which for this amp is priced to sell. However, due to the aforementioned issues, I have taken off $300 for the variac, to which you can replace, repair or pocket the cash. Also took of $25 for the cap, which should be no more than $10

Also at my asking price, I will include eight (8) replacement power tubes. 

driver tubes are Amperex Bugle Boys 6922
Sylvania Gold Brand 6350
GE 12ax7

This will ship in 2-3 boxes. Separate for amp-tubes and variac
