Unit price per 

The mad scientist over at Hunter Amplifiers has done it again! This amp rocks...but all of his do, really.  This amp is a one-of-a-kind, handmade right here in Southern Kentucky! 

Some info from the builder:

While it's based closely on a 5F1 Champ, the "Keno Chump" is point-to-point wired (no eyelet board) and designed to use Loctal tubes instead of the "standard" trio. Loctal tubes were made from the 1930s through the early 1960s for the automotive and aircraft industries. They have locking bases, and they were specially constructed to withstand vibration and shock. The 7F7, 7C5, and 5AZ4 NOS US-made tubes are still readily available and cost less combined than a new JJ 6V6S costs today. I built it with a Hammond power transformer, polystyrene coupling caps, Mod filter caps, and Switchcraft jacks. The 5-watt amplifier powers a Weber Classic Alnico 8-inch speaker mounted in a hand-built, dowel-joined, and Tolex-covered pine cabinet with steel corners and rubber feet. 7" x 10½" x 13"
