    The Yamaha PB-1: to play it is to know it and to love it! A classic unit with a well-deserved sonic reputation.

    Toneful, punchy solid state circuitry, with an eq section that weds the Fender tone stack to a fully adjustable one-band parametric eq (footswitch not included). Not only does it include a variable hi-pass/low-pass crossover and individual level controls on the effects send and returns, it even features a separate headphone out for silent practicing! All in all, a well-thought out unit that sounds fab. Yeah, it's heavy, but that's the only bad thing to be said of it.

    This unit is in decent shape. There's a bit of rack rash/scratching here and there, and one of the power supply cord mounts is a bit bent. Otherwise, good to go.

    Price is now $200 shipped in CONUS. Will accept Paypal, cashier's check, USPS money order. Or thousands upon thousands of cowrie shells. No trades, thanks.

    Here are some pics.

    You heard the man. And coming from a TB'er who espouses "tubes, tubes, and more tubes!" that's gotta mean something, by golly!

    Still, things are a bit slow. PRICE DROP comin' up!

    Picked up a PB1 from a fellow TBer recently ... Great preamp.
    If you want to hear what each of your basses sound like, buy this.
