    Sonic Farm Tantra Bass Preamp - Includes optional “Pascal S-PRO2” 1000 Watt Power Amplifer & Rack Ears.

    I ordered this Preamp “new” from Sonic Farm in late March of 2019! The amplifier has only been used in my home studio for recording bass tracks. This is the holy grail of bass preamps! I’ve owned Avalon, Phil Jones, Wayne name it and this preamp, hands down, blows everything away that I’ve ever used. The only reason I’ve decided to list it for sale is because I’ve decided to go with a “modeling” amplifier.

    These go for approx $2800 new with approx $275 shipping from Canada, not including import tax and customs fees from Canada. Save a few dollars and pick this one up!

    Price includes shipping via standard ground within the USA.

    Specs are as follows:

    The “no cut corners” design includes a twin pentode front end, covering clean gain and overdrive, followed by a comprehensive solid state processing section including a HP filter, a 5 band EQ, a studio quality compressor and a 2 band harmonic generator to help your bass cut through any mix. The included 1000W RMS @ 4 ohms, Pascal S-PRO2 power module can drive a variety of cabs anywhere from small, club ones to large stage multi-way systems with sub-woofers. The internal power amp can be powered off on the fly via the rear panel switch and used solely as a Bass Preamp.
