FS: Read Custom Bass Purity Preamp w/ dual power supply (120V/240V switch)

Discussion in 'For Sale: Europe & International' started by Taustin Powers, Apr 21, 2009.


  1. I had Jack build this one for me when I was still living in the states. I knew I was gonna move back to Germany, so I asked him to make it 240V compatible as well. After a few months of waiting for a universal power supply part that never came, he simply built in two power supplies and a switch. The switch is on the back, and held in place by a security cover plate that needs to be removed in order to switch the voltage, to prevent "accidents". So if you are looking for a great sounding preamp that can travel the world with you, you certainly found it! :) I've been using it with a Crown K2 poweramp, and decided to downsize and get rid of that setup. Got me a small Eden WT-550 instead - that will be much easier on my back!

    Other than that, it has a mute switch and an EQ bypass switch. Not much else to say about features - if you're reading this, you probably know exactly what you are looking at. ;)

    Condition: It works and sounds fantastic! Never had to be worked on, the original seal is still on there. However, it has seen some gigs without a rack, so the top plate looks dirty/scratched. Some jerk parked a beer bottle on it too, and it left a mark. It's purely aesthetical, but check out the pictures to see if that bothers you. The front and back look great.

    Location: I am located in Berlin, Germany. Selling to someone within the EU would be much easier customs-wise. But if someone in the states really wants it, we can probably find a way. I would let you work out (and pay) the applicable taxes/customs fees though, sorry.

    Price: I am asking 550 EUR plus shipping. (will ship after payment has cleared, if applicable)

    I can take more if necessary.

    Fantastic tube pre. Very warm, clear and silent!

    The dual power suply is a nice extra. :bassist:
