Some of these are gettng stupid money these days. Somewhere I just saw an add for one asking $10k. I think that is way too steep, but not to many around, so it's probably a sellers market. Would love to see pics, when you get it back.

I know it's worth far more than is justifiable by the sound and build quality, and I love tube limiters. If you need money, then sell sell sell. I've seen them reach well over $3K when they pop up on ebay in the last year.

Not THAT special, not that rare; it's all about paying for a name.
