    I have a Demeter VTBP-201s I want to sell. It's in great condition - it's spent all it time in a rack. It has the normal rack rash. I'll take $475 + shipping

    i love this preamp. i'm currently selling an SWR SM400s to buy a poweramp for this pre...it is such a clean, clear and wonderful pre. what were you using with this to amplify? did you like the sound of the combo?

    I was using a Crest CA6 and it sounded great. But I just got an Ampeg SVP CL and I like that sound better for me. I'll probably kick myself later for getting rid of it, and if someone doesn't get it soon I may just keep it.

    Do you have any pics of your pre-amp. I been interested in this particular pre-amp for awhile. I have a Ampeg SVPPRO and I want something else. Also what kind of arrangements will you work out.

    okay I have to chime in here. I've got the older VTBP-201 (the 1.5 space one) which is basically the same as this, and it's gotta be the best pre I've played out of. it completely cured any preamp GAS I've had. I'd highly recommend it, plus this is a good price. if anyone out there is on the wall about this, I would say go for it, you won't be disappointed...

    Free bump bro...:D

    i agree with groove theory...i have the VTBP-201s. I believe that the main difference is the jensen balanced out. i use this preamp going right into a digi 002 for protools recording and the jensen is fantastic. i run all guitars and basses through this preamp. it is unbelievably warm without coloring the sound. you can really hear your bass through this preamp. i'm so in love with mine that i'm selling my SWR SM-400s amp to buy a poweramp so that this pre will be in my live rig and studio rig. c'mon folks, this shouldn't be available for this long...
