Trace Elliot V-type Tube Preamp. Handmade in the UK in 1995. Amazing, warm buttery tube tone. Passive, interactive controls based on the Fender Bassman tone stack. Also includes a useful mid shift option, for when you need to cut through extra. Check out www.basstasters.com for sound bites. I had this unit fully checked out at Atomic Music in MD before I bought it from the original owner. They concluded it was in perfect working condition. Near mint cosmetic condition (slight rack rash is the only thing that keeps this unit from being mint). These are really getting rare as people find out they are every bit as good as the Alembic F-1X. I don't expect to come across another in as good a shape as this one. $335 includes insured ground shipping anywhere in the lower 48. Item ships within 24 hours of payment. I'm an Ebay Power Seller and have traded lots of gear here, so buy with confidence.
