Probably one of the most overlooked tube pre's on the market. Hell, there's one up on Ebay right now with an opening bid of $1500, and a "Buy It Now" of $1700! The thing's been up for 5 days and no one's scooped it up yet!
Oops! Just checked on it, and someone finally put a bid in, so the BIN has disappearded. They really should have just "Bought It Then"!
Anyway, I love mine, and will probably never sell it. Just smokes on vocals, bass guita; try it on kick drum... HOLY COW!!! Talk about fat!
I love my vipre. I tried a Millennia and a Great River and it was the versatility of the vipre that sold me. It's like having many different preamps in one. Changing the Rise time and impedance level is like having an eq. Sturdy and chunky. Feels and sounds great.
Could anyone check this one from the link at the below ? I am a bit confused because the vu meter is a bit diffrent than usual. I have been told by the seller that there are two versions of the vu meters on the market. But i wanted to ask here again. If he is right, is there another diffrences about these two versions of pres ?

The logo on the one shown is elongated. Other than that, it appears much the same as mine.
Can't confirm if there are any differences other than cosmetic, but if they are I doubt they would be significant. The sound of a ViPre is not something they would want to mess with. thumbsup
