SOLD: FS: Tannoy Monitor Gold 12 ...Original

Recommended Posts

Item: Pair of Tannoy Monitor Gold 12 speakers in original condition
Location: Central Coast of NSW, Empire Bay
Price: $2500
Item Condition: In fair to very good condition 
Reason for selling: deceased estate
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info: These speakers belonged to my father in law who recently passed away (i'm back in Australia to help with things through the process) - He had them since new (purchased in NZ and brought to Aus in the 80s) He was a piano player and only ever played classical music through them. I'm not sure they've even been used more than a handful of times in the last 20 years.

The interior -drivers and cross overs - are immaculate with the rubber shrouds showing no signs of deterioration. The cabinets have some fading on the top surface (see photos) which could be renovated. The rest of the cabinets are in fair condition given their age. I'd think some sensitive attention would result in a successful restauration without too much difficulty.

 

They are currently being amplified with some kind of sony AV thing so not a great reference yet on the weekend i had a couple of listening sessions with them and they present a spacious relaxed atmosphere that beautifully completes a 7 x 6 m. room... despite the amplification. They have detented energy and roll-off switches which i didn't test. The design is a rather famous dual concentric driver but i assume if someone is reading that they already know that. They are even still with the original speaker cabling.

 

They are located on the Central Coast NSW (Empire Bay) and inspections are welcome. I'm not willing to ship them, but If someone in Sydney or Newcastle was willing to purchase them unseen, i could deliver them. The cabinets measure each 838*553*305

Beautiful speakers , I have the same model drivers in custom cabinets and find the rubber suspension mg12 offers a bass response very similar to the mg15 with a better mid range ,

I guess you don't have a choice, Tannoy's or mother in law. 😉

You should take photos of the front both drivers as well to show the condition of the cone and the surrounding rubber if not only made its harder to sell . The box worth little value only the drivers is valuable .

Yes. I might have to do that, it's a pain though because the screens are fixed and the drivers need to be unscrewed from the cabinet which I'd like to avoid.

      Hi guys, 
       
      I've inherited a Perreaux 6000B and SM2 preamp in good condition. Given the age of these items I would really like to get them rebuilt with quality parts to last another 30+ years, by someone who knows what they're doing, is thorough and does a high quality job (including soldering and wiring cleanly). 
       
      I am located in Brisbane and would prefer to have someone local to perform the work. 
       
      If anyone has recommendations for someone to perform this work that would be very much appreciated. I've done an Internet search however haven't really come up with much.
