Read Purity Preamp - 220V
For sale:Read Purity Preamp - 220V
It took me quite some effort to put this for sale as this is the best preamp I have ever played live. But: my back isn't getting any younger and I'm just fed up with hauling a heavy rack and 2 4x10 cabinets around. So I finally decided to put my beloved Read Purity for sale.
I bought the preamp directly from Jack in 2004 and played it live for about 100 gigs. The preamp was always mounted in a shock proof rack and is in excellent condition. I used it in combination with a I used it in a studio a couple of times and was always amazed by the clarity it provides.
Currently the original JJ tubes are installed. I tried a expensive Telefunken ECC83 preamp tube once. It brought out a little more transparency but not enough to justify another € 100,-.
I would also ship this thing to the US or anywhere in the world but I guess that the conversion to 110 V would not make sense. You will also pay for import taxes and custom fees.
Including shipping, import tax and custom fees I paid about € 1250.
Price: € 550,- incl. insured and trackable shipping to Europe. Paypal accepted.
