I picked up what was left of an FL 2500 amplifier, which would be good for
parts if someone is homebrewing an
amp, or, if you're feeling ambitious, could be restored. It was part of a
package deal with a friend of mine who
moved out of his home and to another state. He had a number of pieces left in
his shack/workshop that I was
interested in and he made me an offer for everything I named. I saw this amp
on a shelf and he said he didn't
remember all the details, but said I could have it and four other pieces of
equipment, as is, for a price.
We suspected that there wasn't a complete amp, but it was back in a corner
behind a bunch of other stuff and
I couldn't get to it to see closer. I figured even if it had been partially
cannabalized, there would still be some good
usable parts to use or resell. There are a number of missing parts as we
The plate transformer is gone, but the other transformer is there. The filter
caps are there, as is most of the tank circuit
variable capacitors and the tank coil, though the fixed caps in the
tank circuit are gone.) One of the two fans is missing.
The high voltage rated bypass caps, such as those for the plate choke coil are
still there as well, as is the plate choke.
The front panel and switches are there, including the band switch, and the
meter. They are all in very good condition.
The cabinet is there, although there is a circular hole cut in the top for a
top blower which is not there anymore.
The tubes are gone, but the sockets are all there.
Contact me if you're interested in parts for your project. I would really
like to see someone take the whole thing
and maybe restore it, but will finish the scrapping if there are no takers for
the whole thing.
It will weigh a lot less than usual because of the missing plate transformer
I am in zip code 84116 if you want to check for an approximate shipping cost.
