    Hey everybody. Up for sale is my SWR Interstellar Overdrive preamp. This one is the original, early production blue face model. It is in great shape, and everything works properly. It has pretty typical scratches from normal use and rack mounting, and the right rack ear is just slightly bent. Probably a 7 or 8 out of ten cosmetically. Sounds dreamy though. It seems like these pretty rarely come up for sale. I have downsized, so I am letting go of all of my rack gear.

    How about $599 shipped, obo. Feel free to hit me with trade offers. Thanks!

    Just had a question from another TBer. He asked if this is a signed model from Don Butler, and it turns out that it is. Inside the case, next to the tube location, it is marked #67, 2/9/94, D.B. Thought that was worth sharing.

    What is the Don Butler connection?? I've heard that Don is a Vox tube amp guru but I've never heard that he worked with SWR?

    I'm not sure exactly. My search indicates that he was the head technician for SWR for about 9 years early on. I don't know much more than that.

    I owned the 2nd gen version and regret selling it. I too downsized before class d power amps became mainstream. This thing paired with a peavey IPR or an amplite would be a light weight 90's dream. GLWS!

    Footswitch is available?

    Sorry, I don't have a footswitch for it. Thanks for the question!

    Just a heads up: There is a music shop near me that has one of those in stock. I can get the price info, if you're interested. The store is only about 5-10 minutes drive from me. ;)
