Great for Hard Rock and 80's Metal
24.04.2016
This is an all tube preamp with basically 3 channels.

The clean is big, bassy and clear (it also depends on your speaker of course). Great for blues specially if you add a screamer.

The crunch is perfect for those hard rock AC/DC type of sounds. Great clarity in every chord and punch too. At the maximum gain it can reach good old school metal, chunky riff based tones.

The lead is like the crunch channel but with a little more gain and low mids. It's very easy to get those early Marshall metal tones. For soloing it is very articulate but you can't reach the amount of gain necessary for those saturated leads runs.

Overall it's perfect for what it was created for: Old School Hard Rock/Metal tones

Very cool preamp
Sven902, 13.07.2015
I love the way this thing sounds. Both the clean channel and the drive channel sound great (haven't used the lead much yet).

The one thing I miss is being able to switch channels externally. I can't engage drive and toggle some other effects with one switch. But I do realize that that would be asking for too much, so it's not really a complaint, and I guess buying two of them and putting them in different loops in my switcher would solve that.

Great sounding, very versatile, low noise, well built, compact tube preamp.
JorisV, 19.10.2015
For me this is an (unexpected) dream come true after 3 years of trying dozens of amps and preamps. Some other amps or preamps have one better mode (e.g. H&K Tube Factor has best crunch and lead) but no other has so much good sounds ALL IN ONE. In addition it has plenty, straightforward and EFFECTIVE tone controls, more or better than most other preamps OR AMPS. I play 335-style humbucker equipped Ibanez and run this AMT into (very High-AZ input) FISHMAN Tonedeq AFX and could not be happier.
