As in 2013, I plan to stock the kits in groups of 5. January 2014 started out with a fresh batch of 5 kits available, and we’ve already sold two. To answer a few common questions: 1. Yes, the kit is available. 2. Yes, the shopping cart works and can be used for purchases. 3. Yes, if you’re uncomfortable using the cart, send me an email, and I’ll be happy to answer any questions and send a customized PayPal invoice. Happy New Year!
The last 2012 Spud Kit will be on its way to Australia next week. A custom build was commissioned including bypass capacitors and a very nice PEC pot. Pictures will be posted prior to shipping. For 2013, we’re stocking kits in groups of 5 with slight delays between restocking. Email with any questions regarding payment / availability.
After a fairly long hiatus, the Spud Kit is available again. 6 kits are available for shipping in mid-October at this time. Price is $390 for the basic kit, $25 for hardwood side panels and $15 for Priority Mail shipping in the US. Any pre-orders will include a very nice pair of NOS Tung-Sol tubes in addition to the pair of stock NOS tubes included with the kit. Email for details or simply place your order through this site. The Tung-Sol offer will end November 1st, 2012.
This little kit has been around long enough to need its own site. While the Hawthorne Audio Forum (http://www.hawthorneaudio.com/forums) will remain the sole source of internet discussion for the Spud, this site will serve as the source of information regarding availability, reviews and the latest associated products. I’ll also create a simple and intuitive shopping cart for purchasing the Spud and accessories.
