Historically, some of my packaging sense has been criticized as 'drug through the hudson'. I present you some examples of what water from the Hudson River really does do as a patina.
Unfortunately, as the title of the post states, this was a case of the Hudson coming up and flooding my friend Steve's basement workspace. It just so happens that this particular basement resides in an old Western Electric building converted to artist residences and the reason the Hudson met his particular space was Hurricane Sandy.
The images above were from two salvaged pieces.... more on the importance of one of them in a few days but even in all the destruction... One can find art.
Quad QA12/P Amplifier - This is pretty close to Quads first amplifier. I got to put my hands on one of these once very cool early British amplifiers. http://www.itishifi.com
