Spector TonePump Active Preamp - NEW !!

Discussion in '[OLD FORUM] Bass Guitars, Amps, and Accessories: F' started by Rod Harder, Jun 29, 2004.


  1. THIS PREAMP IS SOLD !!!!

    Hi,

    I have a basically NEW Spector "TonePump" preamp out of my Spector Euro 5 that I need to sell, it's a good sounding pre but all of my other Spectors have Aguilar OBP-1 preamps so I swapped it out for an Aggie so they all have the same output and relatively similar tone.
    This preamps lists for $199.00 from Spector, and I think they sell it direct for around $130.00, so I'm open to reasonable offers for this unit.
    Email me at rodharder@shaw.ca or PM me here on the board with any questions, and please NO TRADES, I don't need anything at the moment.
    This is a 9V preamp, with bass and treble boost only, like the OBP-1 but it has TONS OF GAIN, and a hotter output than the OBP-1.
    Thanks,
    Rod

    How would you compare the Tone Pump to the EMG BTS circuit?
     
  3. It's warmer than the BTS or the Aggie in my opinion, it warms up the DC40s in my 5 string Spectors but as I said I have OBP-1's in all my other Spector Euro basses so I wanted consistency from bass to bass when I switch basses during a show.
    It's hotter than the OBP-1 or the EMG preamps, and the treble frequency seems to be centred at a lower frequency but that could just be my ears too.
    That's my opinion anyhow.....
