MESA/Boogie Quad preamp – sold
All 8 tubes are NOS Tesla E83CC tubes (these are 100% identical to the Telefunken ECC803S and have nothing to do with JJ tubes). This makes a HUGE difference and brings the highly acclaimed preamp to an even higher level. The tubes alone cost over 250 euro’s! Comes with a Nobels MS-8 midi switcher. You can connect a midi foot controller to it or just switch manually.


 

Audio Arts 4200A vintage analog EQ – on holdeuro
Unfortunately one channel suddenly lacks bass, probably a bad capacitor. There for the price is dropped from 299 to 199. The other channel still sounds fantastic: BIG, FAT & ANALOG

Vintage parametric EQ, great authentic analog character  that can’t be found in plugins or most modern EQs. WORKS ON 120 volts.
Each channel has a bypass, 0.16 tot 2.0 octaves, -16dB to + 16dB of gain and 4 frequencies:
22hz to 300hz or 220hz to 3khz
22hz to 300hz or 220hz to 3khz
100hz to 1.0khz or 1khz to 10kHz
180hz to 2.1khz or 1.8khz to 21khz


 

 

 

Telco vintage high / low pass filter F101 – 249 euro
This vintage German mono laboratory filter uses very high quality parts. Just look at the detailed pics and start drooling. The unit is modified to accommodate unbalanced in and output and operates in band pass mode. The left side determines the high pass filter and the right the low pass filter. It can easily be modified to separate channels of dedicated low pass and high pass filters.

The precision of this unit is unbelievable for an analog unit. A 6 position rotary switch selects the freq range. The manual adjustment slowly and precisely adjusts the turn over frequency and according analog meter. If you look at the inside pics you’ll see that the frequency adjustment knob mechanically operates 5 potentionmeters! This is superbly build and must have costs a fortune when it came out.

MODIFIED ART PRO VLA – MASTERING compressor - SOLD
These units are known for it’s great sound. What set’s this one apart from the rest are the modifications:
- variable tube distortion added
- tubes replaced with NOS ECC81 tubes by RFT/Muhlhausen
- input circuit replaced with high-end Burr Brown OPA2604
- output circuit replaced with high-end Burr Brown OPA2134
- buffer circuit replaced with MC38078N
- upgraded power supply

With these mods the unit sounds like non other and is great for mastering or other stereo audio applications. The unique variable tube distortion is added and will give you everything from clean warm tube sound, to controlled tube edge and even full 100% tube distortion. Great for adding character to digital recordings, drums, synths, backing vocals, etc. Due to the modifications, the compression only works in stereo mode. In dual mono (unlinked) mode, only the right side has an active compression circuit. Killer unit, the reason I part with it is because I have several other high-end tube units.
