Demeter Amplification VTBP-201s - Bass Preamp

Bass preamplifier incorporating truly modern tube design technology with circuit features found on only the most expensive and esoteric hi-fi tube equipment
MFR# VTBP-201s

Product Description

Simply Unbeatable

After over 20 years of production the Demeter Amplification VTBP-201s - Bass Preamp is still the only musical instrument preamplifier to incorporate truly modern tube design technology with circuit features found on only the most expensive and esoteric hi-fi tube equipment. The VTBP-201S has the warmth and dynamic range that only tubes can produce, yet has lower noise specifications than most solid state devices. When the preamplifier is driving a quality power amplifier, it delivers the punch and clarity of the best tube amplifiers plus the almost unlimited power of today's modern power amplifiers.

The VTBP-201S Tube Bass Preamplifier uses a regulated B+ power supply which provides quick transient response with extremely low noise. Regulated DC is supplied to the tube filament which gives the unit extremely low noise. We use only the finest 1/2 watt, 1% metal film resistors, polypropylene capacitors, high quality, computer grade switches, and a 7025A vacuum tube, factory selected for lowest possible noise and distortion. The VTBP-201S also has a low output impedance which lowers distortion and insures proper power amplifier input matching. Custom toriodal power transformer. New single space rack mount steel chassis.

Each preamplifier is carefully hand-wired using only the highest quality parts and tested at Demeter's factory in Templeton, California. You can see as well as hear the quality and attention to detail on both the inside and out.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
