personally, i would be embarassed to sell something that looked like that! plus, i think using the term "power humpty" could be infringement of some sort...

also, the case doesnt look like its milled from a solid block of aluminum to me... of so, what a waste

its amazing it has 20 bids. thats nuts.

"Custom" 47 Lab Gainclone?

Oh, I wonder what caps does it use?
Can be cheap and nasty, without the sleeve you never know!

What grabbed me first were not the false claims, it was the obvious shoddy construction. That case looks just plain bad, the wood finish looks awful, look at the screw holes in the sink, the crappy plastic project box used for the "humpty", the cheapest connectors you can buy and the spaghetti wiring job. I hate to think what the 'humpty looks like inside. This guy pretty much copied the Gaincard discription and pasted it in his auction, the description says nothing about that particular "clone". And what the hell is that holding the ps case together, tape?

All this is fine for a diy jobbie, but for something you're going to sell? C'mon?! Why are people bidding on this?

It's a good thing this guy didn't give regard to Brian or Peter or anyone else involved with what he's got there....I wouldn't want my name associated with it.

Let's see, red boards, regular looking resistors, room for a Zobel. . . looks like the BrianGT basic kit pre-built to me. I do wonder about the number of holes in the rear 'heatsink' though.

Maybe the new name of the site should be DIYSellItOnEbay.com.

Sandy.

BTW: Isn't BrianGT printed on the board? I don't recall. PD must be rolling over in his bed right now!

That switch on the left with handwriting "L/H" is what makes this amp one of a kind.


Is that a gain switch?

Oh, on the back there are two copper screws.
The guy must have been tweaking the amp.

I've seen this amp at a site, I remember it because of the orange spaghetti and the switch on the side.

I will try to see what site it was.
