    Does anyone know where I can find one of these? The old black 1.5RU model with the Jensen XLR output in the rear.

    My previous one was stolen :crying: and I can't find a replacement ANYWHERE. Thanks in advance if you can find me one!

    For what its worth, I've got a 201S that sounds reeeeel nice to my ears. I've never tried one of those blackface units though.

    That one on ebay is the model without the DI.
  5. That is actually NOT what he is looking for. The unit in the auction looks pretty heavily modified...if not actually a stripped down unit. It does not have a D.I. at all on the rear panel, and to be honest, the knobs, switches, etc are not like my 1.5 space "blackface" Demeter VTBP-201.

    Man, no one wants one when I'm selling it. I had a blackface one with nice tubes and the Jensen D.I. for sale here on TB for a while and had no I ended up selling it locally to a player who was thrilled.

    Oh well, not much help, eh? :meh:

    Yeah that one on ebay is close but no cigar. The one Im lookin for doesnt have that blue light on it (+ the Jensen XLR).

    Thanks for lookin out though! Keep your eyes open!

    I had both the 1 ru and the 1,5 ru in the house for a while. They are so close that I think the real difference boils down to the tubes installed. I would broadedn your wearch to include the 1 ru as well.

    Nice preamps for sure, but I prefer a preamp with actual tone controls ...
