    Erm, well, I was never going to sell this piece of gear, but...

    I ordered and received this from Jack when he had the design complete - Purity preamps were very much a work in progress. That having been said, this unit does not have the 120/240 VAC PSU. BUT it has audiophile / studio grade component in every spot Jack offered one - at a premium, of course!

    Jack Read himself giving the 'inside scoop'

    Pros:
    * tone, tone, tone. I've a Mark Bass LMK and the Glockenklang Bass Art Classic and had the Demeter HBP-1. None of these can beat Read for tone.
    * it's a small and rugged unit. No printed circuit boards, just professional-grade point-to-point soldering.
    * can be serviced by a pro!

    Cons:
    * relatively unknown
    * 1 input
    * no bass cut in fx loop

    500 quid - Pounds Sterling - including an SKB 2U case.

    Also a trade I'd consider: Kasha Rockmod II or III.

    That price is a steal IMHO!
    Somebody should jump at this right away...
