    You know the box...get that classic tone warmth from the Avalon selectable 6 EQ curves and boost. Ideal in a live rig or studio setup and doubles as a headphone amp. Unreal for bass but sounds great with guitar, vocals, anything really.

    Unit has spent its life in a rack and was lightly used for home studio recording and occassionally in my live rig. Although I find it to sound superior to my demeter preamp, these days I am using my VTBP201s exclusively since it has the FX loop and I can have everything racked and plugged in and tied to a single switch for fastest setup so the Avalon isn't getting the action it deserves.

    The U5 works flawlessly and is in great cosmetic shape. The rack ears show normal wear around the screw holes.

    All yours for $450 NOW ONLY $400 includes Rack Ears!!! (local)...add $15 to ship.

    Been debating hanging onto it and selling my Demeter VTBP-201s instead. It is such a great box.

    Willing to split up the U5 from the rack ears if you need either but not both...also willing to entertain offers

    If your bass has piezo pickup this is a must have piece of gear. My 6 string bass has piezo bridge saddles and I never liked how they sounded till I got this box and set it to tone profile 4... magic ensued. PS no, I don't know the seller just love my U5 :thumbsup:

    It has sold. Boxed up and will be shipping shortly next week.

    I highly recommend seeking one out. You may not catch this good of a deal, but for my original ask of $450 you can get one shipped to your door (without the rack ears).
