Wow ..  ...
Look at that pricing ...

Guys / dealers you gotta start stocking these .. Karel’s amps are in my books an endgame in so many ways ...
and the man is very accommodating and patient ... so to customize is always an option as well...

We were arguing about giant killers in one of our threads .. well I’m just saying ..

Very very nice Mr Mars. I have one of the earlier kits, think it was called the ST30 or ST35. Going on almost 10 years and enjoying it still.

Pricing of the above pictured amplifier has changed. It is called the "Companion" and sells for R29 900 (please contact us for details)

The EL34 push-pull amp, known as ST70, is still in production and sells for R24 900
