Up for sale here is my John East J Retro. This thing sounds great and I'm only selling as I recently took this out of my Overwater and replaced it with a J Tone.
Please note, my overwater has a separate battery box so the battery terminal is separate from the drop-in preamp (see pics) this means that a small amount of basic wire stripping and soldering is necessary to install the battery - hence the bargain price. The battery cables and ground cable are labelled to make it obvious!
£125 posted in the UK.
Any questions do let me know.
Having a bit of a clear out and came across my J-Retro 01.
Purchased from Bass Direct back in May 2016, fitted to my USA Jazz for a few months, didn't get on with it so reverted back to passive and popped it in the cupboard in my studio. It's been there ever since!
It's the flat response version, so no pre-shape - full details here https://www.east-uk.com/product/j-retro-01/
Comes with original box, still with the anti-static bag plus all the paperwork/fitting instructions.
There are some pen marks on the knobs (pictured) where I marked them (with a Sharpie!) for my own reference. I'm sure these would clean off with solvent and a little tlc.
This was £195 when I bought it in 2016 and, remarkably, they're still the same price (just checked Johns website) new.
Looking for £140 delivered (Royal Mail 24hr Tracked Insured to £100) Payment via PayPal preferred (I'll cover the fees) or £130 cash on collection if you'd rather?
Thanks for looking 🙂
A brand new John East UK J-Tone preamp. Fresh out the box. I’ve wired this up and tested it, and all works perfectly, but have decided to stick with the passive circuit, so this is effectively new. Comes with original packaging, instructions and replacement tone caps.
