    I love this pedal but i'm currently not using it at the moment so it's going up for sale. This pedal runs on high voltage (AC voltage w/original power cord supplied). It is in MINT condition with it's original box and all paperwork. I upgraded it with a vintage USA RCA 7025, which i think makes it sound better than the chinese tube that came in it, but i'll also include its original Ruby tube.
    was asking $199 shipped in the ContUSA. NOW $179.00 paypal accepted.

    BTW, these have a street price $280 but they come with a chinese ruby tube. the USA vintage RCA (tested at new spec) that i installed in mine makes it sound a lot better (since it runs at a high plate voltage) and RCA 7025's usually sell for $40-$100.

    BUMP for price drop. now $179 shipped in the contUSA.

    i can't believe that this pedal hasn't sold yet. it's an awesome sounding tube preamp/od and at this point i'm thinking about keeping it.

    If I wasn't strapped for cash this would be gone. Does it work as a clean tube pre as well?
