    Hello everybody,
    Very soon I'll be the owner of the Warwick JH SP 25 Hellborg. I tried to find the Hellborg preamp that goes with it but it isn't available anymore.
    According to you, what would be the best choice for another bass preamp sound wise and quality wise ? I heard that the Demeter preamps were excellent but they are very rare here in Europe.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Guy, there are a couple of them for sale in this forum. For Sale: - Selling Warwick Hellborg Bass Preamp this is one of them, but do check the classifieds :)
    In my experience nothing come even close to the Hellborg pre. There is nothing really special soundwise about it, it is pretty transparent, but delivers a very solid sound via DI output.

    That's less than the sh price for the pr only, don't even think, just take it!
    212 is a very interesting cabinet, it was the only cab in Hellborg's arsenal I used for miking in studio. It has a really nice voicing, sppot on the sweet mids you need from a mic.
    Live I used big can, or lo cab + club cab
