Demeter HBP-1J Tube Rackmount Preamp w/Jensen Output Transformer
This great sounding tube preamp just came in on consignment.
It works perfectly and sounds absolutely fantastic.
It is missing one small knob, but the pot still works fine and can still be easily adjusted if needed.
Demeter HBP-1J Bass Preamp
This is the upgraded model with Jensen Transformer Output (a $200 option)
The HBP-1 H Series Tube Bass Preamplifier by James Demeter uses the same all tube front end found in his classic VTBP-201 Bass pre-amplifier and combines it with the revolutionary H Series circuitry found in his professional audio H Series line. This preamplifier provides the best of both the tube and solid state world. It features high voltage (250V) tube front end (providing all of the preamplifier gain and passive tone controls), a two band solid state fully parametric equalizer that is tuned for bass, a fully adjustable active effects loop with controls up front, a tuner output, a full balanced output with switchable mic or line level, both a balanced TRS line level output and an unbalanced line level output for amplifier connections and a mute switch. As with all Demeter equipment, it is meticulously hand-wired using the finest components and assembled in the U.S.A.
