FS: My Beloved RCA BA-6A (Kill Me Now)...

Post by tonewoods » Sun Aug 03, 2014 9:41 am

Hey all...

Medical expense force me to let go of some of my favorite pieces...
(I'll find another down the line... :cry: )

A very nice BA-6A with the original manual...
Works and sounds great...

I can take detail pics and post sound samples if anyone is interested...

Love to do a hand-off, as it might be dicey to ship...
Somewhere in the Pacific Northwest...

5K firm.
There's nothing that quite sounds like this box...
Lots 'o iron...

OK, thanks!

I'm fine, Nick...
Thanks for the concern...
Just need to clear up some bills, and hoping the Jimmy Page and/or Tom Petty are still hoarding these boxes... :wink:

Good to read!!!

Those compressor / limiters are very very rare. They do sound fantastic.
I've used one a few times... always delivers great results.

Cheers!

RCA 44BX > Altec 1567a > RCA BA-6A

The 44 and 1567a are also on the block...

Man... That sucks. Wish I was in the position to buy it all from you, just so that you could buy it back should you ever be in the position to buy them back.

Still, easy for me to say when I'm not, but someone who is should take these off his hands.
