    Yep. I have a vmp2000e made about a year ago. A comparison to that would be what I'm looking for. Thanks.

    just for info, unless you already. know, and unless Seb made further mods,,

    if you look thru ealier post, Sebatron explains how to tweek the older version to the newer one, more gain, and bigger shelving on EQ

    something I have yet to do....

    Hope this helps some

    Thanks. I am thinking there is an older version (that may be what the mod post was for), and an oldest version. The blue model only has pad, phase and phantom power switches, no eq switches and would be the oldest, original version.

    Greetings Seb

    If you try real hard do you think you might remember how long ago you made them? :lol:

    How similar do they sound to what you were making a year ago?

    Just to follow up: this was offered on eBay and ended up selling for right at $800 US. Out of curiosity, what was the original selling price for those?

    It was definately before my accident ,, and the ' Great Sebatron Laboratory Fire of 2001 '.
    I'd say it is 1998 to 2000 vintage.
    All my records were burnt in that fire ,, i lost a lot of circuit diagrams.

    They're still part of the same Family ( species ) ,, so the tones would be fairly similar.
    Issues like Headroom , Noisefloor and maximum output are how the newer ones outperform the old.
    It's more of a power issue rather than tonal.

    Mind you , it's just like a car....
    The new ones can go up to 200 km per hour..... the old ones maybe 160 km per hour......

    But who ever drives over 140 km per hour..? :arrow: 8)

    Thanks Seb, maybe I'll see another some day and will pursue it more vigorously. As things are now, I'm still diggin' the 2000e. 8)
