I hit the jackpot this weekend. My brother has a business that provides clean-out services. Many home owners and realtors use his business to clean out houses prior to listing them for sale. He was cleaning out a house that was for sale as a result of a divorce. He called me because he came upon two vacuum tube amplifiers and knew that I might be interested. Then he told me that the name on the amps was Conrad Johnson.
I went to the house he was cleaning out and discovered that he had come across two pristine Conrad Johnson Premier Twelve amplifiers. We contacted the realtor my brother was working for and told him of the find. The realtor stated we should abide by the clean -out contract which says that anything removed from the house by the clean-out contractor is the property of the contractor.
I now have two very nice CJ12s that cost me the price of gas to get to the clean-out house and lunch for my brother.
