    For sale only, two preamps/DIs.

    1) Phil Jones Bass Buddy. Preamp, headphone amp, 5-band EQ, DI, etc. A few light scratches on the mirror finish.

    From the website:

    "What is the BASS BUDDY?

    • A highly portable practice/recording headphone amp made soley for the bass player on the go
    • An active DI box
    • A bass compressor/limiter
    • An EQ dedicated for bass instruments
    • A pre amplifier with enough oomph to power an amp and even an external speaker


    Key Features
    • 10watt RMS amp
    • Switchable Active/Passive input
    • 5-band Graphic EQ
    • Optical Limiter
    • Hi-fi Stereo Headphone Output
    • Low Noise Pre-amp Output
    • World-class Studio Quality, Balanced Line Output
    • Stereo input and volume control for your drum machine/MP3/walkman
    • Can run on two 9-volt batteries or AC power
    • Worldwide AC voltage compatible
    • Dimensions: 5.35″ W x 1.75″ H x 7.3″ D
    • Weighs only 2 lbs"

    Comes with instruction manual and the padded case. It's a very high quality unit but I now have a PJ Bass Cub that I'm using instead.

    $275 shipped in the CONUS. SOLD.

    2) Brunetti 'Overtone 2' tube preamp. It has two channels and two 12ax7 tubes which are run at full voltage under the cage. This is a real tube preamp with real transformers. It's big. It's really heavy. It runs on 110v/220v, not off a pedalboard power supply.



    The Overtone 2 was designed for guitars but can be used on bass. There is some loss in low end, particularly compared to a Meatsmoke so it's likely better on guitar but worked fine for me on bass as a punchy boost/OD into the Meatsmoke.



    It was made in Italy, originally selling for $600, and is now discontinued.

    Full information/description can be found here: Brunetti Overtone 2.

    $275 shipped in the CONUS. Shipping to other countries is possible but would cost a little more due to the weight/size.
