    An extraordinary preamp, no longer built. I hate to let it go but need to pay some bills. Notable features include the EQ bypass switch and Emphasis knob. Here's a thread where Jack Read explains how he designed the preamp:

    This is one of a limited number built with a chrome faceplate (otherwise identical to the standard production model). I recently shipped it back to Jack for a minor hum problem and, obsessive perfectionist that he is, he essentially rebuilt it from the ground up. It was rarely used to begin with, so needless to say it's in primo condition. Some minor wear on the top (not visible when racked), but the chrome face is as new.

    These were selling for $995 when I bought mine new. I'm asking $750 including shipping to the lower 48. Feel free to PM me with any questions. I'm not really interested in any trades, except perhaps a Mesa 400+.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Thanks for all the attention, guys. I've responded to all PMs. Right now I'm waiting to hear back from Nightbass. I'll let you know if that deal falls through.

    On hold pending payment from Nightbass.

    (Wish I had half a dozen of these to sell!)

    I wish you did too, especially with the two DB728s for sale right now.
