    Howdy TB. Doing my usual swapping of gear to try new stuff. For sale is an excellent condition, great sounding Demeter pre. Some rack rash, but front panel looks very good (a couple words, like "LOW" for input, have some faded letters, but it's still obvious what the word/function is). This is the original 1.5 rack space one that many think is still the best. Here's the thread I got it from:

    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f127/fs-ft-demeter-vtbp-201-tube-preamp-aphex-204-a-990057/

    Looking for $450 shipped CONUS. Paypal okay. Trying to lessen gear, so my apologies, but I'm not interested in any trades for now and will edit this post if that changes.
    Thanks for looking, DM

    I'm assuming the only difference from the new one is the rack size. Same DI?

    To be honest, I'm not sure what differences there are between this one and the 201S, which I think was the successor model. I'd suggest perusing the amps section here to try to find out more. I think mine has a Jensen transformer for the DI, but I'm not sure and haven't used the DI. Do you know how I could check that?

    After doing a little research I believe they are the same and both should have the same DI. Not positive but I think the s is for single as in rack space. In any event, if you still have it next week id love it in my rack.
