Old (possibly original) Little Dot?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I found a guy on craigslist selling a Little Dot amp for $130. I called him asking what model it was, since it wasn't in the listing, and he said there were no markings besides "Little Dot" on the back plate, and that it was completely anodized gold. I found a page somewhere else on the internet saying that it was the original Little Dot, but no further info was known about it.  Anybody know anything about it, and if it might be worth $130?

 

Thanks guys!

Does that thing have 3 sets of power tubes? or are those drivers? They look like power tubes but are there no drivers then?

I emailed LD today, and got a response back already from David.

 

"Hello Alex,

From the photo provided, it would indeed be the original Little Dot I.  There are no real build quality issues, however the Little Dot I will get fairly hot during operation which is normal.  You may also want to make sure you have a replacement source for tubes.

Best Regards,
David"

 

There you have it.

 

EDIT: I asked him what kind of tubes it used, and he said  they were 1B2 driver tubes and 2P3 power tubes.

No, I decided not to and get drclaw's Millett Starving Student amp instead, since the tubes on the LD are pretty hard to find.
