    Maybe this one will not get paid for either.
    That's crazy even for new in box.

    I take very good care of my gear & always keep the boxes. I'm sure I could pass off some of it as NOS. I'd never do that, but it's not that hard. I never believe these type of auctions. Treat it as you would any other piece of 30 year old gear.

    If it had been a very good condition but used amplifier what price would been fair?

    400 tops, and that’s with a recap. I had one and aside from the meters, it wasn’t very good.

    The "X" version is a real pain to recap compared to the regular TFM-35 and I fully expect that amp needs a recap.

    I was thinking the same thing. If that rubber band was "original" it would be cracked and dry rotted.

    It was deejay'd, with the bag on.
    I disabled signatures.
