Howdy TB. Bought this DI/preamp in my quest for the ultimate tube tone and having read a post here that this was Bongomania's favorite tube pre. Here's an older thread singing its virtues: Finally! The TAB-Funkenwerk V71 tube & transformer DI
Here's full info from the TAB website: http://www.tab-funkenwerk.com/id8.html
Works on line and instrument level, but I've used it mostly for front end into a head or separate preamp. Makes everything sound clean, shiny and articulate - hard to describe, but makes everything better. Not sure I want to do this, but I'm just not using it enough to justify keeping it when there's GAS to be satisfied.
I'm original owner. It's never left my house, not pushed hard, and has very low hours on it. In as-new condition. Also selling it locally. Pics can be found here: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/msg/4233021789.html
These are $999 new (plus shipping, wait-time, etc.). Yours for $900 shipped CONUS.
Only trades I'd consider (with cash adjustment, as appropriate) are for Puma 500
, 900 or 1000.
Thanks for looking, DM
