    Howdy TB. Bought this DI/preamp in my quest for the ultimate tube tone and having read a post here that this was Bongomania's favorite tube pre. Here's an older thread singing its virtues:
    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f15/finally-tab-funkenwerk-v71-tube-transformer-di-601617/

    Here's full info from the TAB website: http://www.tab-funkenwerk.com/id8.html

    Works on line and instrument level, but I've used it mostly for front end into a head or separate preamp. Makes everything sound clean, shiny and articulate - hard to describe, but makes everything better. Not sure I want to do this, but I'm just not using it enough to justify keeping it when there's GAS to be satisfied.

    I'm original owner. It's never left my house, not pushed hard, and has very low hours on it. In as-new condition. Also selling it locally. Pics can be found here:

    These are $999 new (plus shipping, wait-time, etc.). Yours for $900 shipped CONUS.

    Only trades I'd consider (with cash adjustment, as appropriate) are for Puma 500
    , 900 or 1000.

    Thanks for looking, DM

    Nice, I've got one of these I use for recording all the time. If I had the $$ I'd pick up this one too in a heartbeat. Studio secret weapon for sure. Bass and Rhodes through these are both pure magic.

    Thanks. I haven't used it for recording or as a DI, but it's supposed to be killer for those uses.

    I have one of these too. It is amazing. HIGHLY recommended.
    The bass player from the last Joe Jackson tour told me how much he loves his as well, and it sounded just great in a live setting.

    Why not just keep it? BTW guys, I have met Dee-man, and found him to be very reasonable and trustworthy.

    Thanks for the kind words, HD. Would happily keep it, but trying to maintain some budget sanity.

    Got a pm from Stephen but cannot reply because his mailbox is full. When I get through, this will be sold pending payment. Stephen - clear your mailbox or pm me with your email address. Thanks, DM
