    Here's the original thread where I purchased the Preamp here on TB.

    SOLD - Low End True Voice Tube Preamp and vintage tubes

    Used the TV with my EUB and with my electrics - sounds awesome, but I'm more of a Mesa dork and I'm digging my Subways.

    Price is shipped/insured. Payment is via PayPal. Shipping is ConUS.

    Thx for looking!

    FWIW, here's a pic of when I had it on my pedal board rig.

    Does it come with all the tubes you got from Dee-Man?

    Yep! Included are all of the tubes that I received and I'll include the tube holders that I bought in case you want to attach some spare tubes to a pedal board like I did...

    FWIW, here is the story on the preamp from The Low End Bass Shop.

    "The design behind the LowEnd True-Voice preamp was to allow your instrument’s voice to speak with out added eq. Preamps today color the signal as soon as it enters the unit. Even when a preamp is set flat, you never hear your true instruments voice. I have heard over the years players talk about the live signal to the soundboard when recording sounded so good and how they wish they could achieve it live. After years of not using preamps at The LowEnd bass shop and running guys straight into power amps and then into wonderful bass cabinets we have always offered. Many guys would find out that the bass they had not been happy with, wasn’t the bass at all. But the rack or cab setup. For years I've stripped down everything as far as I can so that the customer can have a foundation to build on with his/her bass and knowing its True-Voice with out being forced into a particular brand of cabinet and head combo."

    What are all the output jacks and switches? What do they all do?

    Front:
    • Input
    • Volume
    • Tonal Balance
    • Power light
    Top:
    • White switch Tube on/off - so that you can change tubes while powered up
    • Black switch treble boost
    Rear:
    • Dual 1/4 outputs (one to the amp and one to a tuner)
    • DI output (I'll open it up to ensure that it has the Jensen transformer - then post it here)
    • DI ground lift
    • DI on/off
    Power cord Side:
    • On/Off switch

    So this doesn't have a volume/gain?

    tminus10,

    Sorry, brain farted and I've already fixed the above post too. Here is the correct info again:

    Front:
    • Input
    • Volume
    • Tonal Balance (IMHO essentially a treble cut)
    • Power light
    Top:
    • White switch Tube on/off - so that you can change tubes while powered up
    • Black switch treble boost
    Rear:
    • Dual 1/4 outputs (one to the amp and one to a tuner)
    • DI output (I'll open it up to ensure that it has the Jensen transformer - then post it here)
    • DI ground lift
    • DI on/off
    Power cord Side:
    • On/Off switch

    Do both 1/4 inch outs have the preamp sound or is the tuner out a mirror image of the input. It’s important to me to know in terms of how I would use this.

    AFIK, the outputs are in parallel. On the the website it had “dual 1/4” outputs” - the new versions only have one 1/4” output.

    FWIW, I used one for my tuner (for an always on tuning signal with fretless and upright) and the other to my amp.

    $325 shipped. Final price drop before I’ll keep it as a 2nd backup.
