WTB-NOSValves NBS Preamp

Recommended Posts

Looking for a nice NOSValves NBS preamp to mate with some VRD's I recently picked up.  I mean, if you have the VRD's you must have the NBS to mate with it.  At least that's my current thinking.  If you have one to offer shoot me a note.  BTW - I have lurked for some time but am not super active here.  I am on AK and use the same name there.  Thanks for looking.

Where did you get your VRDs at?

 

For reference...

:o  That is a beaut.  The VRD's, picked them up in Ft Wayne IN but got the lead from a AK member.  They are about 4 years old.  I am the third owner.  Just seems right to mate them with the NBS pre.

Very very nice.  Looks similar to mine.  But mine is line stage only in Hickory and matches my VRDs which are also hickory.

Mine is 6H30 High Z and 12AT7 low Z.  5AR4 rectifier.  Only 3 tubes.  My 2 coupling caps are Auricaps.  Craig built in a tape monitor loop and switch.  I can use an EQ which I do.

Schu - I think I have your old VRD's.  Perhaps I can match it with that fine NBS example posted here.

Call Craig and beg! Maybe you can talk him into making just one more.

NBS Pre + VRD ST + La Scalas + F112 is PB&J for your ears. Just meant to go together.

Sorry to tease with more photos, just trying to give you some hope that these are indeed out there and sound really amazing. Does anyone know how many Craig was able to build originally?

He's got one last case... but he's always said that no one could ever offer him enough money for it.

You could always try and source a juicy music/peach

Back to the top here... bought a temporary fill in for now but still want a NBS unit to match the VRD's I picked up.  Thanks.
