    Somebody installed a through jack in it (you could use it as a tuner out), that's the extra hole in the back where the power warnings are. Also has a brand spankin new pilot light from Aguilar, they had one in the back somewhere.

    $650 For sale only.

    One of the greatest preamps ever.

    I can't believe this is still here! This is one of the best -- and hardest to find -- preamps around. Different, but there with the Kern.

    As I was just explaining to someone, the jack on the back is only active when something is plugged in the front. It was probably used as a tuner out, but could be used to feed another preamp for a stereo setup, etc.

    I have had one of these for many years. It's powered by a QSC RMX-850. I've tried going back to head/cab, and combo set ups, but I always return to the DB 659.

    There may be better preamps available, but this one has to be one of the best. I LOVE the tone. Someone needs to jump on this one. New, they sold for around a grand.

    I rarely see them for sale. You won't see mine for sale. :)

    Someone buy this. You won't regret it.

    I'm still shocked no one has snagged this. These are pretty rare and, IMHO, one of the best pre's out there. I have a bunch of great pre's and I really dig this one.
