Old stuff: Inca Tech

edited February 27 in Systems


Bottom left: Magnum pre-amp, upgraded. 
Top left: Claymore issue 6
Right: 2 x Claymore FMT tuners

The Claymore and the bottom tuner came as a pair, although the amp needs a little attention. They were caked in filth though, and took a dammed good clean... Have come up lovely though! Like new,  preserved under a protective layer of grime. With a bit of Colin's magic they should absolutely sing. The only imperfection not age related is some slight damage to the LCD, which has bled a little from the top. 

The older tuner (top) was practically NOS, it just lacked original packaging.

I don't know why I keep picking this stuff up, I just like the history I suppose! The new stuff Colin has designed is amazing, but it's good to know where it came from. 

I wonder if I will end up with TOCA 50W monos one day? That'll be a hard sell to my long suffering wife!!

  • Good bless them.
    Every one.
  • Ooooooo, look at those!
    Two FMTs, total extravagance, you really need to sell one off :D
  • TOCA monos! That'd be a thing :-)

    Make an offer!

    Assuming the imperfect one works ok when Colin checks then out, either would be potentially available. I know the perfect one works and sounds beautiful.

    We need to finance more EWA cable...
  • I'd love more old Inca tech to. I'd love some power amplifiers. 
  • Hmmmmmm, interesting, let me know how the surgery goes...
  • Here is an internal shot of the Claymore integrated (Issue 6 board):




    And here are several of the FMT, not too many of these around:

    I've been told the Claymore is an issue 3, a slightly earlier amp. What say you, Colin? 

    Anyone else think Colin got his design inspiration from the Bandit?


    Black and gold...

    It is a iss3  No MC but I do have a couple of MC PCB for this model. Lost in a box somewhere OK bloodhound time.

    Do not buy a Inca Tech Prelude power amp, they were all prototypes and stolen, or a MSB also stolen, try a Dirk or IT50 ,IT100 IT200 or even a Inca Design ID25 or ID50 or ID75 the ID series are A Class.

    IT200 below.


    Try and get one of these only 6 in the world.



    These are good but rare




    Very very rare









  • confused ?



    You will be There is about 40+ type of amps and pre I have design not just for me but other companies, so you may already have one, be warn all are fitted with atomic bomb detonation circuits if used with TQ cable. he he he 
    GM a happy bunny.

  • I would love a gold claymore. I'd love be to find one I could use with my Oberon. Still need to get the pre out put working. 
  • There last gold closure I saw on the market was in Italy, for £2k.
