Venus 69 replica with nos tfk bc108c transistors and nos mullard and siemens caps in it. Has Nos philips and Allen Bradley resistors inside. Carling Dpdt in big dark purple case. $200 shipped and paypal'd. Everything spot on to my original 69 that has TFK bc108c's in it and everything hand tested/selected.
