    man, this one's gonna sting... :(

    trying to save up for more home recording gear, and selling off my VTBP-201s preamp.

    all that luscious Demeter tone in a single space rack. a few scratches from an occasional rack removal, but other than that, abfab!


    all the goodies:


    Two inputs are provided: Passive, for normal musical instrument inputs. Active, for high level active instruments. When both jacks are used the inputs are mixed equally.

    Tone Controls

    Treble: The treble control gives 6dB of boost or cut at 4 kHz (6 dB per octave, shelving type).
    Middle: The middle give 6 dB of boost or cut at 500 Hz (wide Q, peaking type).
    Bass: The bass control gives 9 dB of boost or cut at a selectable frequency of 60 or 120 Hz (6 dB per octave, shelving type).
    Presence Control: The presence control gives up to 12 dB of boost at a selectable frequency of 2 kHz or 4kHz (active type, 6 dB per octave).
    Bright Switch: The bright switch gives up to 6 dB per octave of boost from 2 kHz.
    Internal Volume Trimmer: This control is designed to match the output volume of the Tube Bass Preamplifier with the input sensitivity of any power amplifier.
    Studio Output: The Tube Bass Preamp features a Jensen DB-E output transformer for a balanced studio output.
