I used to get my parts and tools from them way back in the 80's and 90's for my company (ICM Electronics)

In fact I was just thinking about them because my VOM I got from them almost 30 years ago finally needs to be replaced and I see they still are pretty cheap.


it is getting more difficult to get OEM transistors even from MCM. Be very careful in getting these components. Counterfeit shit will cause a nasty meltdown. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

I have called like dozen times and left at least 5 messages on Vintage HiFi's VM. Still cannot get hold of anyone. I called weekends and week days. Mornings and evenings. During the time that has been recorded by automatic VM and outside these time frames.
I wish this would be easier. I will keep trying. Nothing else I can do. I really miss my amp.

Yeah, sorry tom has been ill lately. Great guy, the best. Just sick. I also have parts, i believe all of them for 35/55 amps. Hope to sell them to tom at caverfest as he is the master tech, not me.
