Heathkit SB-200 Vintage Ham Radio 572B Tube Amplifier (looks great, powers up)
This amp looks really good. The cabinet has been repainted and is a bit off the original "Heathkit green" but still looks terrific.The front panel is near flawless. Inside, everything looks original and unmodified. All controls feel good except for the band switch, which feels a bit sloppy. I believe it's simply a matter of securing the knob to the shaft, as the "play" that you feel when turning the knob cannot be seen at the switch inside. We've briefly powered the amp to ensure it turns on and the tube filaments lit up. They do, as does the meter lamp. We've done no further testing in the amp. You'll notice there are no tubes in the photos. That is correct, no tubes are included with the amplifier. They were removed and are being used in another project. This equipment is part of a very large silent-ley estate we recently acquired, all of which has been in a storage unit for approximately 15 years.
We have not done any testing beyond what is specifically mentioned above. There are a few reasons for this, but it essentially comes down to the fact that they almost always need some level of service and it's simply not cost effective to pay our technician to spend time going through them. It may or may not need components replaced (caps, resistors, tubes, etc), controls cleaned/lubricated, alignment, and so on. Unless you are qualified and capable of working on this unit yourself, or are willing to pay a qualified individual to do the work for you, we suggest you revisit the idea of whether this is the right equipment for you.This item will be packaged using our InstaPak foam-in-bag system, ensuring the utmost protection!
