Possibly in a few weeks, depending on some of my parts suppliers, and who I choose to go with for the final chassis. I'll be getting some new combo cabinets in soon, and I may post a preliminary picture on the website for anyone interested.
Things are going slow by necessity, because I am 100% self-funded, and if I purchase everything at once, I don't eat for a few months! In addition, when you order custom-made parts in quantity, there is usually a 4-12 week lead time on the parts. However, this is the only way to keep costs down so you can manufacture an amplifier that doesn't cost a fortune! Also, I am a perfectionist by nature, so I have to have everything exactly right before I am satisified. I hope the end result with be worth the wait!
I *hope* they become collectable, but I sure hope people don't have to pay ridiculous prices for them like Trainwrecks and Dumbles! Besides, I'm just a nobody compared to those guys, so I'm not holding my breath.
BTW, I will soon be selling parts on the "Parts" section of my website. I have been ordering everything in 100's and 1000's, and have offered some of the extra parts to the Ampage co-op guys as a special offer, but I plan to make it a regular item. I'll specialize in kits of small quantities of several different values at much lower prices than you'll find them elsewhere. Resistor and cap assortments will be first.
