    I don't know a whole lot about the history of the AMP brand, but its basically the preamp to a Thunderfunk head in a one space rack unit. I've owned both a Thunderfunk 550b and a Gibson 440 and this preamp is designed pretty much the same way. Sounds very similar as well. I bought this preamp because I like the Thunderfunk tone but I wanted a more versatile rack mount set up. I hardly gig anymore so I'm letting this preamp go. Asking [DEL]$375[/DEL] [DEL]$350[/DEL] $299 shipped.

    If you are interested in the Crown as well, I would consider a package deal of [DEL]$550[/DEL] $500 SHIPPED!

    Double-check that rack unit size. I had one once, and I remember it being 1-1/2 rack spaces. Awesome preamp. A.M.P. was just a little ahead of its time.

    The height is 2 3/8 inches. Is that 1.5 unit spaces?

    One rack unit is officially 1-3/4", so yes. Didn't know the dimensions, but I remember having to make allowances for the extra height. The A.M.P. amps are 2-1/2 rack spaces as well.

    Need to payoff some debts so I'm going to sacrifice the entire set up - preamp, power amp, rack case plus patch cables (everything you need) for $550 shipped

    Folks, This is a killer pre.... I have no relationship with the seller but have used this preamp with a Stewart 2.1 and it absolutely kills. They don't show up very often.
