    Default [FS] SJS Model 5 300b Amp & Model 1.7 Preamp

    Selling the amps as I need to start the vdub fund - If someone wants to buy both I'll do a combined price of ***SOLD STP***

    Both amps are cash on collection as I'd rather not courier them (the 300b is nearly 50kg)

    **SJS Model 1.7 Preamp - ***SOLD STP***

    Started life as a model 1 preamplifier and was upgraded for the previous owner to a 1.5 and 3 months ago I spent £600 with SJS to upgrade it to the following:

    - Dueland RS £192
    - Cerafine HT caps £200
    - Kozmo attenuator £144
    - revised cathode bias £10

    **SJS Model 5 300b Amplifier - ***SOLD STP***


    This is an absolutely fantastic amp and probably one of the best 300b's I've heard (99% of the Border Patrol I tried) Here's a link to Simon explaining the design and part used.

    This is the enhanced version that originally cost £6,500

    Comes with the original flight case and the valves Simon chose...

    Haven't heard them but judging from looks alone these might be the best amps I've seen. GLWS

    The 300b amp is just as nice inside.
    Very impressive. And worth every penny.

    Simon, SJS, makes wonderful gear.

    I beleive this is real wood, not just veneered.
    From the feet to the transformer covers, everything is top notch.

    8 Watts, I had some LV OBXr's previously and these normally need around 20W (Border Patrol is a very good match) but the SJS drove them with ease and sounded fantastic.
