    I have a chance to get an SWR GT bass preamp for a good price. Its used but not too much wear and the gain control might need work. If anyone could talk me in or out of buying it I could use the help. :bassist:

    I have the Groove Tubes version that SWR built for GT. It's the same exact preamp, though. I like it a lot. I also got a really good deal on it (75 bucks on ebay). It sounds good and is very clean. The limiter and the extensive EQ section are really nice features. Plus it has a built in cross over for Bi-amping. I say...go for it if you are in the market for a sweet pre!

    i used one for a while. i liked it a lot but i had a hard time cutting through the mix. i think it was more due to the cab i was using. btw i got mine for $100 and sold it for 200 on ebay. the guy who bought it sent me a long email thanking me. sometimes i wish i still had it.
