    Hello, this pedal is somewhat of an enigma. From my understanding its the same design as the Model 2006/Model 2010 Fodera preamps just tuned a little differently, upgraded op amps and a Jensen DI. It has enough juice to drive a power amp. Here is the feature set:

    3 Band EQ
    a mid cut switch
    Gain boost knob
    D/I with a Jensen transformer
    On/bypass switch
    It comes with a 24V power adapter

    I tried it out with some of my basses all of which except one are active and I just felt like there was just too much going on sonically. Not that it sounded bad at all, quite to the contrary. If my basses were passive perhaps I'd feel different about selling this. In fact I'm still not too sure that I want to. So this is somewhat of a feeler. I'm asking [DEL]$350[/DEL] [DEL]$310[/DEL] $275 shipped! I'm not really looking for trades right now. Thanks!

    All I can say is wow. Somebody should get this. I would consider very closely whether you really want to sell this. I haven't heard it but from the description it seems awesome. You never know when you go on a passive bass mood like I have been the past few years. I was always active before. Too bad I'm tapped so it's a free bump.

    Thanks Hyper-sloth, I'm gonna mess with this a little more this weekend. Like I said it did sound nice. But I think I have most of my tonal goals met. At this point I feel like I'm just splitting hairs. Maybe I need to go passive with some of my basses. I'm gonna experiment some more but I think I'm gonna leave this up.... For now....

    Decided to sell it. Great pedal, I just realized that I have my tonal needs met. So this is a price reduction bump!

    Out of all of the preamps I have owned this one is my favorite I have the Fodera model 2011 and it makes any bass sound better they are hard to find used this is a rare treat.

    I can't believe this is still here this pedal is a game changer and will kick half of your pedals off of your board.
