Good source of Threaded Rod (incl nuts and bolts) at

Tee To Suy Hardware Screw Master
1512 C.M. Recto Avenue corner Tomas Mapua Street
Sta. Cruz, Manila
Tel No. 736-0937/0950 ; 736-1984/2605

Be careful with some of the sales ladies, matataray, yong iba walang modo... mga laging nakasimangot - there around 8 of them when I tried the store one saturday.

I asked one of them girls for a business card... tinuro yong kamay at nguso nya sa kabilang kanto ng glass stand/showcase. I said "Ano?" ('cause I thought she was pointing to the item i was looking for). Sinigawan ba naman akong, "Dun!!!, nandun yong mga card!!! Bingi!!!" (Picture somebody like Gladys Reyes in her contrabida days - aheheh). Marami pang hindi kanais-nais na nagyari dun that day, but the heck, they have the ground bar/wire clip I have been looking for like 2 months now sa mga malls.

Well, there are exemptions to "some" rules, in fairness to its Proprietor and Manager, meron din namang mabait.

But the sales ladies really do need some customer relations / personality development seminar. heheh

Vampire #BPHEX/CB

These are not cheap though. Prepare for sticker shock. Don't think they are available here though.

Called mang rod and he is not doing the transformer which you can use for diy. He's doing it for his own use of assembling tube amp. Is there any that we can go to this and accept custom wound transformer?

parts for multi-driver speaker projects

Postby XLR_silver » Wed Jun 30, 2004 10:28 am

how about parts for multi-driver speaker projects?

are there distributors of top-rate brands like vifa, LPG, SEAS, scanspeak, focal here in Manila? May counterpart ba ang madisound dito?

thanks!!!

Hi XLR_silver,
Sorry but I don't think there's a counter part of madisound here. I don't think it's a problem ordering from them though. I must have ordered from them 4 time already when they wre still selling dynaudio drivers, never had a problem. If you want anything from them, let me know, benn thinking of getting some stuff from them for the longest time.

Prof ArnoldC, meron bang electronics shops na malapit sa area natin [i.e. makati cbd] maliban sa Phasetron [wala silang voltage regulators and transistors eh]? Thanks.
