Limited Time Pricing until Dec 25, 2003:
$129500/Single (regular $159500)

Loved for its honest and
warm replication of music, and well-respected for Al
Hart's high-fidelity design, Grommes is reissuing the 260A in limited quantities.
The original Grommes 260A, originally designed by Al Hart in 1958, achieved
an impressive reputation among those fortunate enough to acquire
one, a reputation which continues to this day.
The 260A Limited Reissue is true to the
original's electronic design, but has been cosmetically updated. Each unit will
be handcrafted just as they were in the 1950s and 1960s with
point-to-point soldering throughout. Because you'll want to enjoy your
260A Limited Reissue for years to come, a built-in bias meter has been
added for your convenience. Also included is a Pentode/Ultra-Linear Mode
Switch for increased versatility. Each unit will come with an elegant engraved
Grommes plaque that can be customized especially for you (e.g. "Made especially for: John Smith", "A gift
from Jane Smith to John Smith", etc.).
