  • A102 with Leslie 245, oh, and they painted them black!

    It is a four hour round trip from Tulsa and they are asking $2500.00. Is that totally nuts or just kinda nuts?
    I'm trying to suppress the urge to do something stupid 8)
    Thanks!

    Depends on the electrical condition of the pair, and on how well the black has been done. I've seen some gloss black paint jobs that have been stunning, and others that have been dire.

    Is it worth it if it's perfect both electrically and cosmetically? Depends on local supply and demand and on whether it's a dealer selling with delivery and a warranty, or a private sale. The store where I work had an absolute mint A100 and 145 last year and they got their asking price of £2600 within a couple of weeks of it arriving on the shop floor. they had lower offers and turned them all down.

    Private sale? Would have fetched less than that, of course.
    It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

      Hi Andy, thank you for the reply. Interestingly not far from where the 'black' ones are is a similar pair to the ones in your store for the same price as what yours were. These look like new and have been refurbished with new felts, capacitors, busbars cleaned, etc. The black ones are in a church and supposedly work and get played, but are not really needed anymore. I'm thinking/wondering if these might be worth 1/2 the price of the 'like new' set. Thanks again!

      edit: On the finish, can't tell a lot from the picture but it is sitting on patterned carpet and you can see the pattern reflected in the finish somewhat, so at least it wasn't black 'house paint' 8)
