WTB: Serpentaudio SA-3A front panel
« on: August 01, 2020, 09:28:22 PM »
Hi all,

Just picked up the pcbs for the serpent audio SA-3A. Would love to get a front panel for the project if anyone has decided to pass on the build. Located in Louisville, KY.

Thanks,

Marty

No idea on the SA-3A front panel, but you can get the real thing from David Kulka at Studio Electronics in LA (UA LA-3A front panel).
Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're probably right.

Thanks for the heads up! Those look great but am willing to hold out for the SA-3A version with the specific mods,  etc. May end up with the ones you pointed to.

All the best,

Marty

Hey Martan, I actually have the full preorder kit still in the box for this project.
(((2 x's PCBs
6 Audio xfmr's
Stereo Component kit
Front Panel
Power xfmr))))
Basically everything but the cells
if you haven't sourced the rest of the parts yet, maybe this would interest you? I wouldn't sell the front panel separately to keep the kit intact.
Not sure if I'll get around to this build anytime soon.
Best,
Elliot

That is pretty tempting. How much are you asking?

How does $700 + shipping sound?

I think that could work. Shipping is to 40205. Does it have meters? Same trannys that Hairball sells  and knobs?

Thanks

It's the "full Monty" in this pre-order thread:

don't think it includes meters or knobs, not sure if the same trafo's hairball is now offering or not. This was 10 years ago :-)

We are on hold a bit here. Bought the kit but the faceplate got crushed during shipping
