    8F7808B2-7812-433D-89F9-B643644A4F04. The time has come to sell my ever so elusive and discontinued Warwick Hellborg preamp. This preamp is totally killer. It has a really great, crystal-clear response that is pretty much unmatched. This preamp has lived in a rack pretty much it’s whole life so it’s extremely clean. All of the LEDs are functioning perfectly. Will come with the original box, warranty card, manual and packaging. I am asking $799 shipped CONUS PayPal ONLY. Specs below:

    The Hellborg Preamp delivers extreme headroom. That means absolutely minimal noise and a capacity to deal with transients and peaks like no other bass amp before. It is designed with the quality and circuitry solutions found in the greatest recording consoles. In fact the transformer balanced DI out, although normally used to feed the signal to a PA system, is designed as direct to tape or disc recording output. There are both high and low impedance inputs provided through a combo- ¼" (high impedance)/XLR (low impedance) jack. The EQ section provides shelving EQ for high (15kHz) and low band (40Hz) and an inductive (coil based) EQ for the mids with stepped (fixed) frequency and continuously variable gain. Choices of frequencies are as follows: 110, 300 and 800Hz for low mids, 1.5, 3 and 5 kHz for high mids. All transformers and coils are optimally shielded in MU-metal housing. Whether passive or active the Hellborg Preamp will make your bass sound better.

    • Input: Neutrik "combo" jack (1/4" and XLR)
    • Clip Indicator: Green (correct operation level); Red (clipping)
    • Input Gain: 66 dB
    • Input Impedance: 50k Ohm; XLR 600 Ohm
    • EQ Bass: 60 Hz, /-18dB
    • EQ Lo-Mid: 110 Hz, 300 Hz or 800 Hz (selectable), /- 15dB
    • EQ Hi-Mid: 1-5 kHz, 3kHz or 5 kHz (selectable), /- 15 dB
    • EQ Treble: 10 kHz, /- 18 dB
    • DI Output: XLR transformer balanced (0 dB, 600 Ohms)
    • Tuner Output: 0dB
    • Line Output: 2x 6dB
