Second production run - limited availability
« on: May 19, 2021, 12:09:35 PM »
We now have three MonAmour kits available to ship in our usual four or so weeks time frame. We will have another nine kits available once our transformer winder gets caught up with their backlog. Best estimate of when that will be is late June or early July. So if you have been wanting a MonAmour kit you may want to jump on one of the three available as of this posting.

Hi Doc,

This looks really interesting. I am tempted, also because it seems that the the covers/cages come already painted black, and the mounting plates also come in that attractive black powder-coated finish. This really makes these monoblocks stand out, and the meters look great against the granular background of the black finish. :)
Cheers,
FS

Yes, this one comes with the black metal finishes already applied. You will just need to finish the wood base to suit your taste.

We got a shipment of Sovtek 2A3 tubes in from our supplier that had two pairs of EH Gold 2A3s in it. We have earmarked those to serve as a free upgrade to the next two MonAmour kits ordered.

Alright. I pulled the trigger. I am looking forward to building another Bottlehead kit!
Happy holiday to all Bottleheads!

Thank you! That makes two!

Guess what? I just found out that crafty Queenie hid a third set of EH 2A3 Golds from me. So we can sell one more MonAmour kit with the free tube upgrade. That would be the last one we have available to ship in the next few weeks. We will have nine more MonAmour kits available around late June/early July when more iron arrives. Those kits will ship with the standard Sovtek 2A3s.

Hmm, tempting to do some "special" plates for you...

Haha, I'm ok with the black, it should go well with the purple stained wood
