    Might be able to get this on the cheap since it might need a light repair.

    Robert should know more about this amp.

    If you don't know how to repair a tube amp, consider the cost, but it may be an easy fix...FWIW

    I am sure I can fix it.

    I have been considering doing my own DIY tube amp from scratch.

    Had all the time in the world last year while not working just no money Sad

    Hi Guys.

    Hugh just told me about this forum and that somebody was looking for a deal on a SP3.

    I have one for sale for $395. Works perfectly. I was using it with a pair of Strata Minis in my office.

    Looks and works great. Bias is steady, and all tubes are stock.

    This is a sweet sounding tube amp.

    Shipping would be from San Diego 92127, My company has a volume UPS rate, or feel free to pick it up if in the area.

    I'll go into the office later today, and check out the weight and shipping costs.

    What part of Michigan are you from? I grew up in Detroit and went to Wayne state before moving to San Diego.

    The SP3 weighs 20 kilo. (44 lbs).

    Cost to ship it to 49024 commercial to residential is $63.08. Insurance would be coverage for $400.

    ETA 4 days per UPS.com

    It would be shipping from my company, at 92127.
