This is a little spam from my facebook page. However, you dudes might be interested. especially the seattle dudes that could just walk over to their shop and test this shit themselves.
(edit - i'm in no way affiliated with verellen amps other than i play their shit and dig it.)
Verellen Amplifiers has a kickstarter going to prepurchase their meatsmoke or skyhammer preamp pedals. The pedals have speaker sims out so you can go right to the board for recording if you want. I've got mine, do you have yours? If not, you're missing out on not only the best god damn preamp you're ever going to buy but you're missing out on a chance to support small builders and awesome dudes. Get in on it.

While both amps sound impressive, jesus fucking christ 'Meatsmoke' is the gayest name I've heard in a long time
