The 1140 and 1144 are actually slightly different. The 1140 is the studio version and the 1144 is the instrument version and having owned both ya the same time and A/B them, they do sound surprisingly different. I sold the 1144 and just kept the 1140

The other contender would be an Alembic SF2 filter, but they cost even more.  

The SWR eq unit (Mr Tone Controls) is line level and very comprehensive, but also has a bypass switch 🤪

My bass rack:

Peavey Alpha tube Bass Preamp (used for fretted basses)

Selfmade Preamp for my Wal fretless

TC2290 Delay/Looper

KMT DC5 poweramp

Currently not installed due to repair is a Yamaha SPX990 multieffect which sits in the stereo effect loop of the TC2290. I´m using it for reverb with the fretless Bass.

FET Bassman...do tell me more! I love my F2B, but I’m not convinced the valves are the secret.  A FET version with passive eq has always been of interest 😜

My FET Bassman is not what the name suggests. It consists of a FET-transistor input stage, followed by a modified API 553 inductor EQ. The three switchable frequencies for each band are adapted to my taste and work very well with my Wal fretless. It doesn´t sound like a Fender Bassman at all. My Peavey is closer to a Bassman than the FET pre. Here´s some internal p*rn:

You don’t happen to have a circuit diagram for this do you?

I´ve never drawn a complete circuit diagram. But let me search my HDs for the schematics I have everything stolen from 😉

Found myself a Trace GP11 for the bargain price of £75. Ordered a couple of knob caps from Britishaudioservice.com for £6.50 plus postage.
