By a quad of the reissues and trade him! Specs are the same for voltages. Some say the vintage tubes sound better!
The reissues are supposed to distort earlier- which should make a guitarist happy! :D

FYI: Mouser has them slightly cheaper; their shipping is reasonable, too:

I had offered to buy 200 (cheaper still that way) & ship out to everyone.....no one took me up on it yet....

Gary.

I would like you or Angelo to get 2 for me and ship them to me, as shipping from the US is a killer.

Gary or Angelo,

Don't know if Alex has two for the amps he built for Matt and I or not. I know I need two for the 2 amps I have here at home that I will ask Alex to solder in for me after I recover from my shoulder surgery tomorrow. [-o< Thanks Alex in advance.

Bottom line, I will take 4 to be safe. This way will be covered on all 4 amps.

Will be more than happy to re-imburse for parts and shipping whoever ends up mailing 4 to me. Just let me know who and how much.

Thank you

So let's hear from anyone else who may have been planning to purchase these Zener diodes & I'll just make a bulk purchase unless Alex has already ordered them.

Once we've determined that, I'll take PMs with addresses to send them to. DO NOT PM ME UNTIL WE FIGURE OUT WHAT WE'RE DOING, PLEASE!!

:D

I honestly have no idea... That is a question for Bob and Jordan, I barely had enough parts to build the amps I have done for the forum members that left me their kits. Anyone that needs transformers or parts needs to call Bob or Jordan, I do not have enough parts to supply anyone.
