There is one for sale on FleaBoy @£29.99 (Buy It Now price) - presume that is where the pics came from. Wouldn't hold out for finding a match, though.

For sidefills, can we have two enormous things of a type that might be venerated as Gods by the inhabitants of Easter Island, capable of reaching volumes that would make Beelzebub soil his pants.

That would be a good one for the Museum. Arthur Barns would know, he had Fane in the '60's, not sure whether his sons would know anything.

I assume that it is just a simple phenolic dome tweeter under that front. Alnico magnet though.

They dont seem to worth anything,one sold last year for just a pound!

Hello,

Yes it has been over five years, but good things come to those... 

I've just been clearing out the attic and I have found a pair of these as well as a pair of the Richard Allan mid units that came with them (one of which needs a new coil).

If anyone is interested then give a shout. Apparently similar to some Celestion tweeter from back in the (good old) days.

Regards, 
Tom.

Hello Tom, do you still have the Fane 301 tweeters? Would you sell them? Thank you
