For Sale:
FS: Bottlehead Crack w/Speedball and upgrades; professionally assembled

Will Ship To: Anywhere

Thanks for looking at my ad!  Up for sale is a beautiful Bottlehead Crack w/Speedball amp with a long list of upgrades.  The other big deal about this amp is that it was professionally assembled by former Bottlehead employee Shawn Phelps (aka hifibuilderguy).  It sits in a beautiful, custom Blumenstein audio caramel bamboo base.  If the base looks a little taller than normal, you just have to flip the amp over to see why.  Holy Mundorf, Batman!  The output caps are a pair of MONSTER Mundorf Evo Aluminum/Oil caps that really appreciate the extra height of the base.  A TKD volume pot and Vampire copper-body RCA jacks round out the parts list.  

 

So let's look at what we have:

 

Bottlehead Crack kit - $279

Bottlehead Speedball - $115

Mundorf Evo caps - $150

TKD volume pot - $99

Vampire jacks - $40

Professional assembly - $340

Blumenstein base - $95

Stock tubes - $0

Chatham 6AS7G - $50

 

Total - $1,168

 

Also included in the sale is the original base which I stained using dark walnut Danish oil with a coat of poly on top.  I will ship the amp in the stock base with the Blumenstein base unassembled.  

 

For less than the cost of the parts, you can own this professionally assembled "ultimate" Crack w/Speedball.  If you love your Sennheiser HD600/650 or your high-impedence Beyers but wonder what they can sound like, here's your amp.  I can't think of an amp I've heard that I like better with my HD600/650.  

 

The price includes Paypal fees but NOT shipping.  Please PM me with interest!
