    For Sale: Alembic F-1X Tube Bass Preamp

    $425 shipped conus

    This is the vintage redface model, which is identical to the current day blueface.
    This unit has been well cared for and is in perfect working condition. There is some minor rack rash.
    This is an amazing preamp!

    -Highest rated preamp ever in Bassplayer Magazine!!!
    -Very versatile! It has a hifi sound, with a beautiful tube warmth (think Stanley Clarke). If you drive the volume knob, you can dial in some growl.
    -Interactive bass/mid/treble circuit used on the Fender Dual Showman w/ Bright and Deep switches (great for slap)
    -Amazing DI w/ pre/post switch
    -Effects loop
    -Full range, hi, and low output w/ crossover

    It pains me to sell this, but life happens, and I have to move some gear. I'm currently using a bass head that has a very similar preamp (Mesa 400), so this isn't getting used.

    This retails for $1099 at Bass Central.

    bump! I have the Blue one,and it sounds fantastic. Warm,full,crisp,and the effects loop really brings the best out of my pedals that i've ever heard.
