I recently bought this preamp and while it sounds great it is not what I was really looking for. I think solid state clean is more my thing. If you want tube pre than this thing sounds great. The Telefunken tubes give this pre its character. I originally bought it from this thread: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f127/fs-aguilar-db680-db659-sold-891002/ I am asking $700 Shipped with the Telefunken tubes.
