Default Lowthers on sale

I noticed that Jon Ver Halen updated his web site and that
he is offering some Lowthers at 20% off until the end of the
month.

In particular, the PM6A's (which are favorites of mine).

No doubt Jon is too modest to tell you about this himself.

Ohhhhhhhh Mannnnnnnnnn ......

I am starting to get back into my Lowther collection with some new designs and there is a pair I have always wanted to try. Having to decide if I should jump at the offer is killing me.

Martin, is it one of the 5-inchers? I've heard good things about those.

I have thought about the 5 inchers on an OB w/ a 15" woofer a few times, a very interesting idea.

But I have always wondered about the PM5X and PM7X drivers. Have lost a couple different used pairs on e-Bay over the years. So the pair of PM7C drivers on sale caught my eye. I like the C series a lot. So I am struggling to resist the temptation to pick up the PM7C drivers.

Comparing price on commonsenseaudio (home of audio nirvana), the PM6C is cheaper than after discount on LowtherAmerica. About $150 off on the PM6A though.

Audio Nirvana folks are coming up with their own tube amp. Sadly, the price to performance ratio doesn't look to be the same as with their drivers.

The PM6C doesn't have quite the tintinabulation of the
fancier Alnicos, but it is a very respectable driver. I used
it in the demo system at the Burning Amp Festival last
October as an example of a "budget" OB.

With a $29 Sony player.

Those PM6As do look delicious. I just got told by the misses that I need to control my urges.

She would only be pissed off for a little while ..... you can enjoy the Lowthers for a long time. I am speaking from experience.

Why do I have to search for the prices? I still have not found them.
