    Very sad , Jeff had contacted me a couple weeks ago asking if I would like to purchase his company.

    I plan on keeping the kit availability alive.

    Scott, this sounds like a great opportunity for you, and it would be a great service to the amateur community as a whole. It is sad that his health is such that there isn't time to negotiate keeping it alive and having a good transition for the business.

    There certainly seems to be a considerable demand for his products, and he has an excellent reputation throughout the hobby as well. I hope you can keep the kits going for years to come. - Paul, K7IN

    Thank you Paul

    I will also be adding more items to the site to help support each of the pa’s. I have resources and knowledge that I have accumulated over the past 20 plus years in the repair industry, that I will be able to contribute to the site.

    Harbach and Jeff’s legacy couldn’t be in better hands.

    The kits , parts and my pa repair work will continue for many many years to come. I’m 42 years old and amplifiers are my passion. This work is my primary work, not a secondary side gig.

    Scott is in an ideal position to take over Harbach. It will complement his existing repair business. It's an ideal fit, and a superb business model.
    Scott is a Pentalab tube dealer already, so expect the entire tube line up to end up on the Harbach site...along with several other items.
    He is the right age, and with 20 yrs of experience, and already having installed a ton of Harbach mods and kits, is well versed to continue the Harbach business model...and expand it.

    They aren't closing "permanently".
    The notice on their website explicitly says closing "temporarily"...

    Sorry.. confused by info on different Harbach pages... like the Dentron page..
    That could be intentional since we Dentron users are often confused :()
    Will be in touch about a PM2500 for my old sweetie... she popped, puffed a lil blue cloud and gave off a little odor... Caps??? She is an original untouched MLA2500 non A model.

    Sad about Harbach.

    Home page has the official...'temp closed' announcement. However, on parts pages, or individual sub headings, like dentron, drake, heath etc...they have the red banner...which sez...'permanently closed' ...... which is IN correct.
    Just talked to scott 2 mins ago. There is a ton of items being shipped from Ohio to CT. Stay tuned. It's all in transition. Be patient.
