    Quite simply, this is one of the most punchy, clearest sounding Bass Preamps ever made.

    The Yamaha PB-1 is made in Japan. Right there you KNOW it's quality.
    It's compared to the Alembic and Demeter preamps, but a fraction of the price.

    All solid state makes this amp punchy, quick, and reliable. It's warmth is that of a tube preamp.

    This is the BEST $300 you'll ever spend on tone...

    $300 SHIPPED !

    Great pre. That's probably the best condition one I've ever seen.

    Are they still making these? I played one in the late 80s that I got used that already looked ancient. I've never seen one with an IEC connector before. It was a very cool preamp.

    Absolutely, C. What a trip - this was the first real piece of gear I ever owned aside from my Larrivee bass. About 1985. Ran it into a Crest amp.

    Sorely tempted to grab this just for sentimental reasons!
