  1. i was looking for a preamp for a friends studio, and he was always saying that he LOVES the tone of my sm-400s and the 8x8. So i found one of these guys on ebay, it was one of the older ones with the green writing, anyone know how i could date it?

    All i have to say is KILLER tone, nice clean signal.

    But, i wonder why don't they make these anymore?

    I too love my SM 400-S Henry 8x8 combination.
    It can't be beat.

    To date the Grand Prix, just pop the top and the
    date will be written inside by hand and initialed.

    I have a Grand Prix and like it a lot. A NOS USA made tube really improves the tone. I have a 1950's RCA blackplate in mine. The lows are cleaner and the harshness in the lower mids is gone with the RCA tube. These are fine preamps for recording or performance.

  4. ok, i'll pop her open later to check it out.

    Now all in need is an IOD :D mmmmuuuuuuhahahahhahahaaaaa
