Vitamin B15 Bass Preamp & DI
After a decade of building handwired amps for guitarists Deluxe Amplification is proud to finally introduce an offering for our bass playing brethren!
The Vitamin B15 is an accurate all-analog recreation of the first two gain stages of the classic fliptop circuit. You'll be able to get that THICK and RIGHTEOUS studio sound that you've been missing out of your solid state combo, PA, or console. That's because your signal is passed through both sides of an old stock 6SL7* to either a direct TS high impedance 1/4" jack or that jack can be bypassed and routed through a 1140 series Hammond studio grade impedance matching transformer for a low-z xlr output option (If your PA has a powerful sub you'll be intoxicated by that low-z output!). If you've got a bass amp that you love but would like to give more natural tube preamp compression, the hi-z is your huckleberry. Either way you choose, the Vitamin B15 is going to give you what's on those albums but missing from your rig.
The front panel offers volume, treble, and bass controls.
These are hand-built one at a time in extremely limited quantities using the highest quality components and attention to detail.
*Due to the nature and availability of old stock preamp tubes, the 6SL7 you'll receive will vary from the tube pictured.
