GROOVE TUBES VIPRE


From memory... Grove tube was bought by Alesis, then they split apart when Alesis started to have money problems. 2-3Years ago Grove Tubes de solved and the tube division I think was bought by Fender.

So the Microphones, Gear etc.. all is a thing of the past.

Sitting in my rack like a queen on her throne. Serial #13.

It had a problem a few years ago, so I sent it in to get it fixed and overhauled. Sounded better than ever and still does. I love this pre.

I hope it never breaks again, I don't even know who I'd call at this point.

. . in typical GS and internet fashion . . . everyone raved about this pre at first. Six months later, people didn't even want to talk about it. I can tell you from owning one, it's a great pre. . . . if you can find one, pick it up. I use mine all the time. It can make one mic sound like several mics with it's impedance and rise settings. Big fat sound! I use it with all kinds of mics in different situations with great results. I have many nice pres . . it always does something that no others can given the right settings. Not saying it's perfect for everything . . but it does BIG better them most.

Groove Tubes "The Glory Comp" & "Vipre" TOGETHER! - eBay (item 160525807171 end time Jan-10-11 17:02:55 PST)

From a listing from somewhere else on the internet where an individual is selling both the Vipre and the GT compressor.

Might be of interest to someone, purely from a research p.o.v. of course. (no connections to meself)

I have been tracking that one, it is out of my league, especially this time of year but I watch out of morbid curiosity
