NOS dbx 165 165A Unused Original Beede Level Meter, Tested, Guaranteed. -20 to +10 db scale.  No longer in production, hard to find item. Some light scuff marks from storage but good overall condition.

Note: meters used on the dbx models 160, 161, and 162 are electrically the same but have a -40 to +20 scale. For use in those models, the scale can be removed and swapped with the scale in your old meter. To do this, carefully pry the black cover off and remove the two screws holding the scale. (This job is a little delicate but can be done by the average person, if care is taken.)

When replacing this meter, please test the meter drive circuit and verify that the meter current is correct BEFORE installing the meter. Faults in the meter drive circuit can destroy these meters. The buyer is responsible for problems caused by faulty installation or circuitry.
