Tube beast
Sevich5 27.01.2020
Perfectly fits the music styles in which I play - death metal and sometimes thrash metal. I am waiting for my tube power amp to arrive, but for now even using cab sim (it's better to use it with emulation of the amplifier power stage with a choice of tubes) I get an excellent sound. There is plenty of gain, the sound is aggressive and assertive with high readability. Many sound combinations are available with clean/lead + gain lo/hi + mid lo/hi setups. The device is assembled perfectly. One of the best choices for guitarists of extreme music styles.

Excellent preamp for the price
Anonymous 28.06.2016
Great "bang for the buck" preamp for both live and studio use.

I ordered this pre-amp several years ago from this site and was blown away by the sound! I primarily use the unit for direct recording into some decent cabinet impulse responses, however I have used it live on several occasions with a power amp or slave head.

Cleans: Fantastic clean tone, sparkly, lots of high end, great character. Tone controls are incredibly effective here. Sounds great with a neck pickup for a bit of warmth.

Crunch: Classic crunch tones! Using the clean channel with the Hi Gain setting gets you some lovely breakup, especially when paired with some hot pickups!

Lead: TONNES of gain on tap here, though it does get a tad noisy when pushed to it's limits. It has a very distinctive high gain sound, not like a Marshall, not like a Mesa. Again, as with the clean channel, the tone controls are incredibly responsive and musical. It's worth noting that the high mid acts more like a treble control, and the treble more like a presence control. The contour button works brilliantly too, at enhancing the mid-range for a more cutting tone.

It connects effortlessly to other gear with line outputs with gain control on the back, and I've used it with a wide variety of equipment with no issues.

It's just amazing.
I bought it to have a smaller setup than Powerball, and once I paired it with a tube power amp I was set.
Amazing sound, very versatile and it's really cool that it can power a cab without a poweramp if needed for practice.
This with an IR loader is a killer setup in the studio.

The distortion is super nice and versatile, the clean is a little sterile, but it takes pedals perfectly. The crunch sounds tend to be a little bright, but I rarely used those.
Can't recommend it enough.

Le son des lampes

Petit préampli qui est ultra simple d'emploi. pas de réglages inutiles et le son chaud des tubes. Petit bémol, le transfo bruyant mais cela n'affecte pas le son .
