    incredible find!

    I too think those are JBL C39s ....I would imagine have good value in any condition, just for the cabs....a rare find!

    Every score I've come across has been by looking for vague descriptions. A generic "speakers" got me my ADS L1290's for $40. "Receiver" landed me an NAD integrated amp for $20. An estate sale last year had a pair of Bozaks photographed as end tables. No mention of speakers in the ad. If someone is too lazy to put up photos and model numbers, or look up the value of what they have, they're usually just looking to just dump what they have. They might think that old means no good. It sucks having to weed through all the crappy ads to find gems, but that's where the action seems to be. That, and garage sales. People "upgrade" to surround sound with satellites + sub and a wife cleaning out the basement might think their 2-channel stuff and larger speakers are of little value.

    Indeed. Before this, I had only ever come across one set of Sherwood. I have seen many more Fisher and Scott components than any other tube era brand.

    Here is a shot of the truck after I had already unloaded a few pieces that were in front of the vertical stack.

    My JBL 4343B's were a hidden find...as was McIntosh 240 Barzilay grab. My two best scores ever.

    I once found a free 'tube radio tuner' or some such on Freecycle. Turned out to be a completely intact Dynaco SCA-35 integrated. You just never know. Ironically, tuning was about all the SCA-35 doesn't do, but what do I care. :thumbsup:

    Congratulations on a mega score. Not many like this still around.

    That bell housing took quite a hit. Still 200+ worth of parts.

    It sure did. The other one did not suffer the same though. Getting ready for the big JBL extraction mission Saturday.

    OK, "Operation JBL C39 Harlan Extraction" has been completed!

    As I initially observed, one does have a University driver, the other, not sure yet. The internals were removed, but, at least one still has the paperwork secured to the back confirming at least one is an original JBL C39 cabinet! :banana: IMG_0401.jpg IMG_0402.jpg IMG_0404.jpg IMG_0405.jpg IMG_0406 (1).jpg IMG_0410.jpg IMG_0413.jpg

    There are quite a few test gear there that I did not consider. Anyone see something worth considering?

    Although that HP piece was probably expensive new, I doubt that test gear stored in those conditions is worth salvaging. Too bad!
