    Micro SD card now included and price is $375 Shipped

    Shift Line Olympic MKIIIs

    Never thought I’d sell this, but I’m moving on to a Starlifter and I’m passing on this great little preamp for someone else to enjoy. It has served me well and works flawlessly. Not a bad thing to say about it and I’ve written a lot of positive comments in the SLO thread. I’ve used every input and output at one point and it’s extremely versatile. I’d easily buy it again should my tone tastes change.

    Included are -

    • The original Tung-Sol 12AX7 tube (the most gain), a JJ 12AY7 (less gain, tighter lows, neutral mids, $15 value), and currently installed is a JAN Phillips 12AT7 (even less gain, less mids, smoother highs, $19 value)

    • Samsung 32Gb Micro SD card with SD card adapter (not pictured)
    • Original box and power supply.
    There are two small strips of easily removed velcro on the bottom.

    Excellent condition and ready for a new home. This setup is 100% ready to rock and ready to tweak to your liking.

    SOLD Adopt it today for only $375 shipped to the CONUS. SOLD

    I could have said the same thing, but tastes and needs change. To my ears the Starlifter plays better with my active basses and the dynamic range is mighty. There is a lot of clean headroom on tap and it just flat out does what I ask it to do. I don’t know what all is under the hood, but it weighs about as much as a brick - which is nothing like the SLO or the Mesa preamps I’ve used. They say the DI is transformer-less, but there is something else heavy in there that is contributing to the secret sauce.

    Anyways, the SLO is for sale until this ad says sold!
