Carver Amazing Silver Ribbon - Only One

Post by marantzfan » Tue Aug 17, 2010 7:34 pm

My two year old mistakenly destroyed one of the ribbons on my Amazing Silver's a while back which put me in the market for Carver ribbons. Well, I found 2 ribbons, not 1 for sale so now there is an odd man out. If anyone is in need of just one ribbon I will part with this one for $200 plus shipping. This is an original Silver ribbon, not an ALIII ribbon.

Well, the ribbons look identical...but the metal frame on the ALIII ribbons is a lighter shade of grey... So, visually you can tell them apart.... Not sure otherwise..

Dark gray(black) is primed and painted the light gray is only primed because they were used in the ALlll and hidden by the black foam.

The ribbons are exactly the same only the paint is different.

You will find ALL3s with black ribbons but you will not find Silvers with gray ribbons.

So they are the same? I have needed a ribbon for my odd pair out and I was going to sell my other pair and still may but the one needing fixing still gives me a full good pair! :-k

hello. i would be interested, but at a lower price for sure. i already have 6 ribbons now, and the last set that i bought the other day, i got for not much more than you are asking for that one ribbon. a pair of al-III's and a tfm35 for 500. good luck with your sale either way.

The pair of ribbons I got was about $500 shipped to me. I'm not trying to get rich here, just recoup some of the cost at what appears to be about fair market value.

I'll snap some this weekend..not sure you'll really be able to tell the difference though, the color difference isnt dramatic. Only reason mine have the silver ribbons is because I replaced the originals with ALIII ribbons though....wasn't a factory thing..
