Default FS: Crown DC300 needs repair

Silver DC300a in excellent condition but needs repair. It sat in a rack all its life and is very clean. $100 plus whatever the shipping/insurance costs are or local pickup would be great... I plan using US Postal...

There are folkes here that know that amp and with a failure description they might be able to estimate the cost/effort to repair. Is $50 really enough to ship it in the US. Sounds pretty low to me.

I received the amp on a swap and had many wonderful ideas for the it. The 2 rebuild threads on this forum were excellent. I need to concentrate on 1 project at a time because I have 4 amps in various stages. So to help buy parts I will sell this giant classic.... and make space. Some talented DIY member could repair/rebuild this classic piece of American glory..... So I'll go get my lite bulb current limiter and plug it in and see what happens. At the moment I have lots on trick or treaters at the door... Stay tuned

Hope your moniker is not a prelude to the test you are about to perform on the Crown....

LOL! Crispycircuit doesn't work so good for selling items! Or at least in working order.... It DIDN'T pass the lite bulb test. The 60w bulb lite very bright when I brought it up on the variac. But the fuses were not blown??? I'll take some pics tomorrow in case anyone interested. It's better than excellent cosmetics and the insides look like new. And it has the large silver knobs.... NO RUST.......

OK, if it's still available I'll take it. PM on the way shortly. I'm near Rochester, so will pick it up- no annoying packing or shipping!

Best,
Conrad
