dig the same things that turned me on as a kid?"
from: "When I Grow Up
(To Be A Man)
by: Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys

adults than we might suspect. Here I am (written in 1999), at forty-eight, and I
still get a kid-like kick every time I hear, see, touch, and yes, smell my
40-year old H.H. Scott tube gear reproduce my favorite musical selections.
Strange? Maybe. For an entertaining, yet informative
perspective, see: Ric Manning's syndicated column: The
Gizmo Page: "Tube Gear from the 60's Still in Demand."
Like many Eisenhower/Kennedy-era baby boomers, I cut my teeth on my father's
H.H. Scott's, EICO's,
Tandberg's, Electro-Voice's, and
(.......and Ford's -- he never owned any Oldsmobiles).
These manufacturers (and many others) designed and built world-class products
that can last a lifetime with a little tender loving care and maintenance. When
compared against contemporary "high-end" tube audio designs; vintage
H.H. Scott products represent a true audio bargain!
The following pages are designed to help you find, acquire, restore,
maintain, and enjoy the many fine vintage H.H. Scott tube Hi-Fi components that
are still out there waiting to be rediscovered.
