We are getting ready to relocate from St Louis to the Nashville TN area in June. Currently our custom build backlog is blocked out into May. There will be an estimated 2 month hiatus on
custom part orders after this to set-up the new shop. So pardon us while we pack up and move.
1- We are going to start buying windings for OT33PP, OT42PP, OT19PP and OT20SE from the Mexico plant. We will confirm their capabilities to wind the larger OT's with these runs and get some
Stock back on the shelf for these models. We'll assemble, Varnish & Test here in the US.
2- Bahrs has started delivering covers again. We have the HC-87 back on the shelf and are getting those versions of our products back into the EBay Store VC-87 covers are due in
3- HiFi/Audio offerings are making up a large part of the backlog now (OT10SE-HF, OT20PP-HF, OT19PP-DYN-US, OT22PP-DYN-US and OT43PP-DYN70).
4- Domestic USPS performance has been killing us all year. We have been steering EBay customers to FEDEX SmartPost are the first choice. The USPS problem is that even if we schedule
the PICKUP and get their CONFIRMATION they simply aren't scanning Priority Mail packages locally. After we print a label the next SCAN in USPS Tracking is often when the parcel gets to a lcoal
distribution center near the customer 5+ days later. EBay suggested I take every box to the post office and stand in line to observe the scan..... they are just tooooo funny ;-)
5- Got my hands on an F/A-18 Amp from Robin Feathers last month. Basically a "cakepan" amp using the PT190.2 and an OT5PP. It sounds great with my closed back 12in cabinet. I'll
get some pix and clips in the Gallery soon. Lots of fun in a small package.
