    This is a mid 80's GT Tube Pre Amp (Studio Series), this pre was designed by the same guys who made the early SWR stuff, it has the same parametric EQ design that SWR used on many of their popular Amp heads.. This unit is JUST a Pre, it has some really neat features:

    - Cross over for Bi amplification (seperate output for Hi and Low freq's), includes a knob to select the cross over Freq bet 100-1k

    - 2 Pre amp outs

    - Direct XLR balanced output

    - Effects Loop

    - Built in Limiter

    - Built in Aural Enhancer

    - Seperate High and Low Gain inputs (high features pad for active insturments)

    - (1) 12AX7 tube

    - Outlet receptable to allow for one switch power operation with a power amp or other device


    Ive had this head since 2001 and used it a lot, after a few years it was retired to a home practice amp set up, I put in a fresh Tung Sol 12AX7 tube in 2009, it has not had that much play since so it still got plenty of life left. I had it mated up with a Peavey Tube power amp and it sounds fantastic, clean and warm, with serious tone shaping ability. Aside from some face plate wear and some scratchy pots the pre amp is in great condition and works as it should.

    This is a cool piece, vintage and pretty rare.

    $300 delivered CONUS


    I Would work out trades for a Mesa Diesel cab, a quality 2 x 12 or some other nice cabinet that could handle 5-600watts and is less than 100 lbs.

    I think this preamp was more than DESIGNED by SWR (Steve Rabe) -- it was built by them.

    The address for Groove Tubes and SWR were like 2 doors apart back in 92 or so (when this was made).

    It's a very clean, very clear sounding preamp; just like the original SWR SM-series amps, because it basically IS an early SWR amp.
