    Good deal, look at converting the 8950 to use 6lb6, a lot cheaper and with just a little work with a soldering iron can be re tubed and up n running.

    If your willing to sell let me know, would be very interested depending on what all is missing besides the tubes, i have some old vintage gear along with a swan radio i use, would look good next to it.

    Be very careful with that amp, the first time you let it arc or don't dip it correctly it will eat the parasitic choke and about half the other under-sized components Swan used in them. That amp is about the same build quality as an old D&A Maverick.
