    I love the sound of the barefaced. I had an 8x8 for a while but did not like the horn and just did not gel with its sound. The Barefaced sounds like a new cab with the Demeter, I like that combo a lot!

    Here's the inside of my Demeter VTBP-M-800D note the old board used for the pre amp. Man, this amp is really lovely. Tube driven Jensen transformer into a class D amp. I have yet to get over half way on volume and its huge.

    If you want the story on these amps and have not heard you should. Here's the blurb.

    What’s Old is New Again
    In 1982 James Demeter built the first of his series of VTBP-201 pre-amps. His idea was to build a Tube Audiophile Pre-amp with Classic Bass Amp style tone section. There were other Pre-amps at the time but they were just guitar amp circuits that had major design flaws. His first customer was Leland Sklar. Lee took our proto-type to try it out and kept it. Lee used the pre-amp and it’s backup for another 25 years until he downsized his rig. In 2012 He decided to donate the #1 Pre-amp back to its creator. We were very happy to see it back and of course we had to listen to it. We were amazed how warm and clear it was. It sounded very similar to the current VTBP-201 but it was rounder and a bit slower than the newest model due it unregulated power supply and old school parts. Around the same time we found 150 of the original PCB’s that were used in that model. We decided to clone Lee’s pre-amp but, put it in the smallest box possible with our 800D power-amp. The result is the VTBP-M-800D. At 10.5 lbs. It is one 800 Watt tube tone monster.

    Features
    All tube pre-amp circuitry Hand wired in the USA using High quality components, DC filament, full 280V high voltage supply. Classic passive tube tone controls Treble, Middle, Bass with frequency selector and presence with frequency selection.

    I have a Demeter Opto Compulator pedal and I can confirm these guys make TOP products. That amp looks like business.
