    Sadly, I must sell this beautifully made and awesome sounding Demeter VTB-M-800D to pay for some upcoming medical costs.
    Everything that you've heard about these great amps is true. Wonderful sounding tube preamp coupled with a powerful 800 watt power amp makes for an incredible sounding amp in a lightweight package.
    Think Ampeg sound in a less than 11 lb package putting out 800 watts rms.
    - This particular amp is one of the newer ones that has an upgraded cooling vent added to the bottom of the case. They had some problems with the first ones made that would overheat and shut down when they got too hot.
    - This unit also includes the Jenson Transformer (a $230 upgrade)
    - Also included is a very nice custom Studio Slips case.
    - Price includes Conus shipping

    Here's more info from Demeter's website-

    All tube pre-amp circuitry Hand wired in the USA using High quality components, DC filament, full 280V high voltage supply. Classic passive tube tone controls Treble, Middle, Bass with frequency selector and presence with frequency selection. We replaced the original bright switch with our new Mode switch that lets you control the overall tone: Dark, Normal and Bright. The unit has a pre-amp output if you need to run more amplifiers. A select Jensen transformer drives our 800 watt class D Amplifier. There are two Speakon combo jacks on the back to hook up your speakers. We offer upgrades for Jensen transformer Direct outputs and a line level effects loop. The amp weighs 10.5 lbs and messures 13”wide x 5.5”high x 9”deep. Built right here in the USA in our Barn in Templeton CA.

    Tone section:
    • Treble Control: The treble control gives 6 dB of boost or cut at 4 kHz (6dB per octave, shelving type).
    • Middle Control: The middle give 6dB of boost or cut at 500Hz (wide Q, peaking type).Bass Control: The bass control gives 9dB of boost or cut at a selectable frequency of 60Hz or 120Hz (6dB per octave, shelving type).
    • Presence Control: The presence control gives up to 12dB of boost at a selectable frequency of 2kHz or 4kHz (active type, 6dB per octave).
    • Mode switch: Dark, is a high frequency cut fatting up your fundmental. Normal, flat opertion showing off more overtones. Bright, brings out the overtones on the dullest basses or speakers.
    • Internal Volume Trimmer: This control is designed to match the output volume of the VTBP-M-800D with the sensitivity of any Bass.
