    Hey all,

    I've decided that if I hang on to this any longer, I'm in danger of becoming a hoarder. It's everything you've heard about and more, but I'm just not playing much these days so it's time to pass it along.

    One of the great things about owning a Kern is that, besides the fact that it's built like a tank, if anything ever does go wrong with it, Les Plopa, the designer, will repair it for free. When it developed a slight hum in the DI a while back, I sent it to Les and he went through everything with a fine tooth comb, making a few upgrades that he'd designed after this one was built. I've only used it a handful of times since, so it's in excellent working order.

    It's also in great shape cosmetically. As you can see in the photos, other than a few minor surface scratches on the top the unit is very clean.

    It will ship with a JAN Philips 12AX7WA in V1. I did a bunch of tube rolling early on and this was what I kept coming back to, as did Tom Bowlus in this preamp tube shoot out (scroll down to Post #86 for his results):



    I'll take $650 including shipping to the CONUS. Not looking for any trades, but I'm always a sucker for a good P-bass or a Bergantino cab.

    Let me know if you have any questions.
