Hey all, I am taking offers on my SWR SM-500 bass head. I am looking for enough money to move up to a new or like new Demeter HBP-1 preamp. I'd like to sell it or, if you have a Demeter HBP-1, we can talk about some sort of trade. Details are listed below (from an earlier post): -bought brand new only 3 years ago & only gigged for 2 of those 3 years -excellent condition & racked almost all of it's life -recently had tube replaced & had entire unit checked over by a local electronics shop One of the effects jacks in the rear (I can't remember if it's the send or return) is a little loose, but it is in perfect working shape--I run a DBX compressor through the loop w/no problems. I'll bet that the jack could be easily secured with epoxy or solder or something... If you (or anyone else) is interested, please make me an offer. These things list new for $1649 I think, but I could probably let this one go for around half of that OBO. I'm mainly looking for $$ to go toward the Demeter. Private Message or e-mail me if interested... I wanted to see if I could get an offer here on TB before I posted an auction on Ebay or www.bassgear.com. If you're an Ebay user, look up my user name (shizot) for positive feedback ratings (there are only 3 or 4 ratings, as I don't sell a lot of stuff). Thanks!!
