The HBP-1-800D H Series Tube Bass Pre/Power amplifier by James Demeter integrates an 800 Watt Class D amplifier, driven by Jensen Transformers, into the HBP-1 Preamplifier circuit. This unit uses the same all tube front end found in his classic VTBP-201 Bass pre-amplifier and combines it with the revolutionary H Series circuitry found in his professional audio H Series line. Utilizing the best of both the tube and solid state world, the HBP-1-800D features high voltage (250V) tube front end (providing all of the preamplifier gain and passive tone controls), a two band solid state fully parametric equalizer that is tuned for bass, a fully adjustable active effects loop with controls up front, a tuner output, a full balanced output with switchable mic or line level, both a balanced TRS line level output and an unbalanced line level output for amplifier connections and a mute switch.
I’m proud to offer my 3 favorite lines of bass amplification for sale here at D. Lakin Basses. I’ve been testing & using bass amps for over 40 years. It’s a great time to be a bassist as top sounding and lightweight equipment is available at very reasonable prices! I’ve known the namesakes for both lines of amps I carry, James Demeter and Nick Epifani for over 25 years. Both men are passionate and very talented at what they do. Trickfish is new to me this year and so far I’m absolutely impressed by the way they sound. Mix and match to create your ultimate bass amp solution! For example, my test rig is a Demeter 800 watt head going through an Epifani 410 DIST cabinet.
