      I bought this amp and only used it a few times. No more than a few days of use total. The 811 is a great amp, but it needs to be used and I'm not going to use it. It was put in the box on a shelf in the closet long enough that the tubes became gassy. Ameritron covered this by sending me a brand new matched set of tubes, fuses along with another diode. Keyer interface is included along with all the cables. Asking $800 for all with new tubes. About a $250 savings. Amp is indeed perfect, new condition.

      The amp is only about two years old, but as stated I hardly even used it. I just took it out of the box to use it for a day or so to be sure it was all good to go and a tube shorted. Ameritron said the tubes became gassy. Two of them are probably still good. it only takes one to blow to blow the fuse. Since they sent me new tubes I decided not to put them in and light them up.
