Default Mystery panel on eBay

Just saw this on eBay. Gosh, you never know what's there when you clean your old barn out (that's a joke... maybe from an attic).

At least you can join the Q&A about what is the marque and see how smart you are.

The link doesn't work!

Ebay links never work any more.

Link works for me: it says "removed"

It mightl be coming back at some point, with an accurate description. Vendor was confused about the panel and just identified it as "Kloss"... which would be enough to wet anybody's interest.

Maybe 15 cm wide x 100 cm high, and it looked to me like it was covered with a steel plate with maybe 7 mm holes.

I'm pretty sure it's a bass panel from a Koss Model 1, or 1a. I sent him a note, but I accidentally wrote Kloss instead of Koss, and he edited his description based on my typo. I've sent him an apology & correction, but I'm not sure if he'll correct the title again, or just assume I'm a nut!

The mystery deepens.

(Thanks to jer for his stellar detective work re-discovering the item! Which then disappeared again!)

Cute little bugger ain't it? Is it that thick because it's got multiple sandwiched panels inside for bass response?

Nineteen bucks ain't bad, but look at the 'economy' shipping..

Yes, it's a bass panel, so it has two sheets of film and three stators per panel. They really did play loud & low well.

He's changed the title to "VINTAGE KOSS MODEL 1 ELECTROSTATIC PANEL", so I guess he got my correction email.

Unfortunately it looks like at least one is torn, so they will need to be rebuilt. He says he has two bass, and one mid panel, but the current auction is only for the one bass panel... I hate it when folks space out parts like that, I wouldn't be interested in just one panel, and there's always the chance you get one, and someone else gets the other! He's supposed to be listing the others later.
