I've been getting a number of questions about the lead-time on currently out-of-stock products. I've created this page to address the current lead time on products that are unavailable. I will update this page as I get parts or any new information.
The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly affected manufacturing all over the globe. Many factories that supply Hairball in the USA, Mexico, and Overseas are closed or operating at limited capacity. One key factory that makes custom parts for us has closed permanently, without warning. Most lead-times have been pushed back, so the list below is subject to change but will be updated.
Please Note: Many items are in stock. If you can add it to your cart, it's in stock and shipping normally.
FET/RACK and Bronze Kits: The company that makes both our 5002 and B11148 output transformer has closed for good. We have both transformers on order and expect to have them the first half of November.
FET/500: I hope to have revision F FET/500 kits by November 1 2020. Revisions A/D output transformers require special processing to fit in 500 series. We now have these on order. I should have these mid-November.
Transformer Sales (EA-5002/EA-11148/C-3837-1): Most of our transformers are custom made in states that have shut down non-essential manufacturing or are operating at limited capacity. Selling individual transformers is not an option unless we have excess units. We need to sell full kits to stay open. I expect most transformers to be unavailable for individual sale until early 2021. If this changes, I will update this post.
SA3A/1108 Transformer Bundles and Don Classics U76 Kits: The factory that makes one of the transformers closed permanently. I hope to have these bundles back in November 2020.
*Please understand manufacturing worldwide has been severely disrupted and small businesses like Hairball Audio fall to the back of the line. I'm working hard every day to keep things in stock and get more stock. *
