The price gets pretty good at those quantities.

Also, I was concerned about the parts disappearing...

I still would be concerned - that's a street value of over 2 million!

I just couldn't resist...

Yikes! if I math correctly, are there going to be about 100 'beast of 1000 jfets' kits?

Greedy Boyz percentage is most of them.

I did consider 100 pair of beasts, but mostly amp front ends, preamps,
crossovers, and equalizers.

Since there is speculation as to which parts, they are spread among 10 types,
P and N, with Idss figures from 5 mA to 100 mA. Minority % are NOS already,
probably all NOS before too long.
