    Ok.....I have some stuff kicking around the studio which does not see much use , and so I have decided to clean house a bit.
    All of these are in new to excellent condition:

    Fodera Model 2000 Preamp: Floor model bass preamp...very good....quiet. Excellent outboard bass pre: $150

    L.R. Baggs ParaAcoustic DI/preamp: studio quality pre/DI; great for electrics, acoustics and URB; notch filter; phase reverse, parametric eq,aux loop..: $125

    ART Levelar Tube Compressor: Very nice smooth compression for bass; very warm and musical. $75

    ART Tube MIce Pre: very warm and useful for bass, pahse reverse, 60 dB gain...very nice...$75

    Raven Labs Professional Master Blender: two ch. preamp (with stereo input)with aux send and ret, ch inserts (which can be used as line outs) Balanced DI with ground lift three band active eq on each ch., and phamtom power, tuner send...slight rack rash but otherwise in very good working order.... $225

    MidiMan MultiMixer 6: 6 channel stero line mixer...very small and quiet; line level inputs, pans per ch. and headphone outs (makes a great headphone/practice amp!) $50

    Yamaha NE1 Parametric Eq...brand new...$30

    Just curious, does the Fodera pre color the sound much?

    well, yes....after all, that is what a preamp does. The Fodera features controls for Bass boost (completely counter-clockwise is flat) mid boost/cut; treble boost; Master Vol and two switches: one for on/off of the device and one to bypass the mid circuit...which is quite handy.
    It is an 18v circuit and so has ample headroom. Heck, it is made by Fodera and (I believe) is a Mike Pope designed circuit. Probably the cheapest way to obtain that "Fodera Sound" very quiet and quite useful.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    If I may, in response to the Fodera question:

    I have one of these and they are great! DEFINITELY colors the sound and quite nicely.

    $150.00 is a good deal for it.

  8. What model is the ART tube pre?
     
  9. maxvalentino

    maxvalentino Endorsing Artist Godin Guitars/ Thomastik-Infeld

    The ART is a Tube MP model Tube Microphone Preamp.
    It is either table(amp) top or can be afixed to a pedal board.
    Features:
    70dB of gain; 12AX7 tube
    XLR Balanced input and output
    1/4" TS (unbalanced) input and output
    1/4" and XLR can be used simultaneously
    switchable phantom power
    phase reverse switch
    20dB gain pad
    input gain cntrl
    output lvl cntrl
    10Hz to 20 KHz Frequency Response
    >100dB Dynamic range

    actually, it is very nice preamp for either bass direct signal, warming up a signal to hard disc, or as a mic pre (does wonders to a cheap mic like a SM58 or 57) and is great for all kinds of condenser mics.
