I like this preamp a lot

I like this preamp a lot. It has separate gain and output level knobs which allow you to push the gain louder into the tubes while turning your final output down to prevent clipping your input interface. This adds a nice color to the sound which I really like because I already have plenty of clean neutral sounding preamps. I also like the fact that it has the 1/4" inputs on the front. I played bass through it and was able to get a nice gritty rock sound pushing the input hard. This preamp has a lot of character in its sound. Sonically, it seems to add weight, which is good for making big lead vocals.
