    will somebody put up some sound clips of an ADA MB-1 Preamp? I would really like to hear what it can do because I'm thinking about getting one.

    J,

    Wish I could. Great sounding pre. I'll be selling mine with the B500 power amp & midi foot board very shortly. All mint condition & I'm the original owner from '91...

    I may be interested in this rig. I am not familiar with the B500, however; who makes it and what are the specs on it? Got any pictures of the rig?

    Thanks.

    My dad said maybe (not right now, but yes in a little while in my dads terms)

    This is funny! It's not even the "sale" sect & it's turned into it! LOL!

    Anyway, ADA made the pwr amp & it has 2 channels: hi & lo. The hi has 275W(195)& the low has 385W(105) @4ohms(8ohms), the low being for subs or full range & same explanation for hi's.

    The pre has 2 12AX7's with a chorus & semi-parametric a compressor sect. It's tube & solid state(like a Mesa2000) & you can blend them how you like. Very nice pre with great sounds.

    I have ALL the original manuals for both & the pre-set program chart too.

    Figured I'd drop a line to my fellow TB'rs here on such an appropiate post before I put it on "the bay".

    Hopefully tomm I can post some pics. I'm in the middle of moving from my house & I have to go to work now...

    Is the MB1 noisy? I tried out an MP1 for guitar a few days ago and it had quite a lot of noise in it, which when cranked up through an amp would sound horrible.

    Look forward to some pics if you can get 'em posted.
