I'm selling this Radio Craftsmen C500 mono tube amplifier.
These are super rare amplifiers, which were hand made in the fifties in Chicago under a Western Electric license. This is among the best tube amps for a mono system. Here is a video of the amp in action https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qAfmVLQCZPs
The amplifier has been fully restored in the spirit of keeping it as close as possible to its stock condition:
- All out of spec resistors were replaced.
- All electrolytics were replaced. The multi-section can capacitor was replaced with one of same size and value. 2x 10uF Atom sprague where used to replace the 2x 8uF.
- The 4uF paper in oil can capacitor is left on the chassis to keep the original look but is not used. It has been replaced by 2x 3.3 uF WIMA film capacitors.
- All the original film capacitors were changed and replaced by Solens.
- The power cord has been replaced.
- The bias potentiometer was worn and has been replaced.
- The amplifier is equiped with a set of two brand new matched Gold Lion KT66. The two 6SN7GTB are a match pair of NOS Marconi tubes with test new. The 5V4G is NOS and also test new.
- A bottom plate with nice rubber feet was custom made.
