    Hey David. I had no idea GK even MADE a preamp. What did you think? Obviously, you're selling it. But how did it perform?

    If you've seen the for sale archives, you'll see I've bought and sold LOTS of preamps. :)

    I try pretty much every preamp I come across, just out of curiosity. I bought this with the intention of selling it on again. I'm happy with my thunderfunk head.

    You're right, this one seems to fly under the radar - I'd heard about it before, but not actually seen one.
    It has the GK sound you'd expect: good low end, punch, articulate full frequency range. Second channel gives good distortion options.

    I wish I could hear some sound samples somewhere. Don't suppose you'd send it to Todd first....? :bassist:

    I could record and send samples next week if you would want to wait that long. I'm too busy this coming week with work. It's very nice for recording. Quiet and transparent, but with the usual GK eq options.

    no, sorry. I've done my basstasters duty, eight of the preamps on there are ones I've loaned to basstasters!
    If you've heard a GK head, you've heard this sound.

    Schwinn, you're using one of these? Did you end up getting a GK instead of the SVP-CL?

    Yes, I did. I didn't think the SVP-CL would be different enough from my SVP-Pro. Unfortunately I bought my GK new since there are very few used ones that pop up.
     
  13. bump for a great preamp at a great price.

    I will vouch for him, I too have the 2001rbp and love it. If you are looking for that GK sound this thing has it. Just add a power amp and you are set.

    Hey, I'll buy it. I get a bonus from my work at the beginning of March, so if you still have it by then I would definately be interested in buying it.
