Newer style SVP-Pro (grey crackle finish) for sale or trade. Never had any problems with it, i.e. it's not noisy. Very minor rack rash (has always been racked). I have recently changed directions musically. I love the sound of this pre but I'm afraid it is not quite clean enough for my current needs. Would like to trade for a BBE Bmax (SS) and a good distortion pedal. Would also consider a Bmax+cash. Cash price is $325 shipped. Pics are available on request.
