    I have a couple tube preamps for sale. Both in good condition with the normal rack rash. Don't be surprised if this ad is closed prior to selling. ONLY trade I'd consider is a black Fender precision with p/j. Would do both for MIA or the Alembic for a MIJ.( or something along those lines) Would also be interested in a black Spector Coda 4P.

    ****New trade thoughts**** I'm starting to get very interested in some of the Made in USA Peavey basses with the Super Ferrites pickups and possibly p/j. The two I'm mainly thinking are the Dyna and Foundation basses. I'm still really only looking at black basses and would prefer a dark wood fretboard.

    Alembic F2B: Allot of good reviews can be found on this guy. The summarized output was modded as another A channel output by previous owner for use as a tuner out. Easy fix. My application didn't need the summarized output so I didn't mess with it. It's missing one of the red knob ends(?). Other then that nothing of note.
    $525 shipped

    B.K Butler Tube Works Blue Tube II: these Butler designed preamp s are criminally underrated.( So much so, I don't know that I want to sell it.) 2 channels that can be used independently and combined via front panel or footswitch. Comes with a 2 button footswitch. Cord missing ground leg post.
    $230 shipped.

    That meatsmoke does look glorious, though.. I don't want to ignore it.

    I agree. It's an awesome pre, but................ It's been dethroned.
