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 FET/RACK A and D kits on Monday November 23rd. The FET/RACK F and Bronze kits will be available in January.
FET/500 Rev F: These will be in stock sometime in January 2021.
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 in January 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 for sale in January 2021.
*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. *
