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 in great shape. Inside, everything looks original and unmodified. All controls feel good except for the band switch, which is a little tight but still works. My guess is that this can be remedied with electrical contact cleaner. We've briefly powered the amp to ensure it turns on and the tube filaments lit up, which they do. We've done no further testing in the amp. Please note that no tubes are included. The tubes shown in the photos are only there to show filaments lighting up. They have since been removed for use 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! Bags filled with a chemical mixture expand around your item and harden to form a protective, yet forgiving, foam barrier. IMPORTANT: You will only receive what is photographed. If it is not shown in the photos, it is not included in the sale. This includes items such as original packaging, accessories, manuals, and so on. Speaking of manuals, it is strongly recommended that you thoroughly read it before attempting to operate the equipment. If a manual is not included in this sale, you should download one. We're here to help!
