In the early 80s James Demeter created a prototype preamp for Leland Sklar, a session bass legend whose done work on countless top 40 hits and worked with Phil Collins, Carole King, and James Taylor. After 25 years of dedicated use Leland returned the preamp to Demeter, it was revised with new components, and stuffed into the smallest enclosure possible. Classic passive tube tone controls like Treble, Middle, Bass with frequency selector and Presence with frequency selector produce hi fidelity bass tones that are sure to make you smile ear to ear. Demeter replaced the original bright switch with their new Mode switch that lets you control the overall tone: Dark, Normal, and Bright. The unit has a pre-amp output if you need to run more amplifiers. A select Jensen transformer drives our 800 watt class D Amplifier. On the back panel there are two Speakon combo jacks, direct outputs, and a line level effects loop. The amp weighs 10.5 lbs and measures 5.5" high x 13” wide x 9” deep.
