Default MGIIIa Ribbon Strike!

So glad to get the Modified MGIIIa back up and running! A screen arc in one of the tubes of the Quicksilver Mini Mono mono blocks running the ribbons took out the right ribbon, but not the fuse???
Talked to Gary at Magnapan and received great service once again had the ribbons very quickly and put fresh ribbons in both speakers. One forgets just how effortless these speakers are, fabulous! And yes I got new tube set as well!
It's all about the Music, but I sure like the way my gear makes it come alive!
