Default Excess Mar-Ken enclosures A6 & A7 bamboo ply

1st up. All agressively priced to move fast (i need the room)

2 sets of bamboo plywood B-stock dMar-Ken7 for Alpair 7. Some minor glitches meant these were excessed. The 1st is the more commonly seen caramel ply with laminated strips on the outer layers. $350/pr + shipping

The 2nd (neopolitan) are stranded bamboo, where a matrix of strands form the outer layer. This is both stiffer & heavier. $350/pr + shipping

The original dMar-Ken7 prototypes/demos. Plywood with cherry veneer. These lived at Bud's tempoarilyuntil supplanted by a bamboo pair. $200 + shipping

Alpair 7.3 will not work all that well in these (1 of the reason for the aggressive prices). I can supply copper A7eN for $200/pr (regular $290) with cabinet purchase (i'll even assemble them if you'd like). I also have 1 pair stock silver Alpair7) version without super gasket) that i would supply for $100 (i will EnABL them for $80 more).

Last up is a pair of mMar-Ken6 for the original Alpair 6. Naural finish on Baltic Birch. These are a result of a communications fumble. I am essentially giving them away. $50/pr (mostly to cover the cost of packing -- someone local can call me on that, by picking up and turning over a tenner). This box is the same tuning as EL70, but some effort would need to be expended to trim the driver brace and to hog out the cutout to fit the larger driver.

All are damped, will come with the terminal cup & wire.

Look up Plyboo. There should be some near you.
We were getting another brand in Seattle from Bamboo Hardwoods.
Warning - it's expensive. But really, really nice.

We have something like 5 local distributors that carry various brands of bamboo ply. The Neopolitan is from Plyboo. The caramel i'm not sure.

Dave,
I'm interested in the dMar-Ken7 that are veneered in cherry for $200/pair...I'm also interested in the pair of silver stock A7 (g1, no?) for $100. So could I simply paypal $300 + shipping for the pairs of cabs and drivers? If so, I'll purchase immediately.
Regards,
Mario

Both the caramel (actually Amber on their product chart ) and Neopolitan were Smith & Fong Plyboo. The west coast BC distributor is Reimer Hardwoods - their NA dealer locator map :

Architectural Reps & Authorized Distributors - Bamboo Flooring & Bamboo Plywood Building Products


Don't be tempted to use the cheaper bamboo products engineered for flooring with veneer or composites core backing - it won't sound the same. The 3/4" bamboo plywood can be a bit of a bear to work with on enclosures as elaborate as the "Kens", particularly with dadoes and continuous grain wrapping on the Neopolitan - but very rewarding aesthetically.

OK yours. email me and we will get the detail sorted,

Re: A7. The 1st batch came without the supergasket. The 2nd batch were the same except for super gasket (so both AlpAir7.2). The 3rd batch are the A7.3 just arrived.
