    Incoming Preamp

    Just ordered a Rocktron Valvesonic Plexi tube preamp.
    They are being blown out for $300. They have a Blackface version as well.

    I'm sure it sounds great, but I've always had a difficult time wrapping my head around a rack preamp that doesn't have multiple presets. Still though, I'm sure it rocks and want to hear clips when you get it

    That almost turned me off it. I figured a workaround though. I'm going to run it in a loop or my MS-3.
    I can dial in the pre clean and hit it with a boost or distortion, or find a good over driven sound in the preamp and bypass the preamp for my clean tones.

    I've sometimes fiddled with the thought of this same one, or an Engl 570/580, in parallel to my ADA MP2.
    Mod the MP2 to split the signal after wah+compressor, one leg out to the external pre, which is then mixed-in right before master volume and the dual programmable tone stack. Might happen on day..

    Looking forward to hear some samples from you
    Know Thy Self. Know Thy Law. Do What Thou Wilt.
    But it's buggy! - It's software, dummy, it's a feature..

    Plexi showed up yesterday.
    I got to crank it up this morning.
    Running an SS power amp good for 270 watts. Unreal how good it sounds.
    Sweet singing sustain. Plenty of gain without a boost. I ordered the Blackface, just because.

    Quick really sloppy clip of the Plexi.
    I had a little too much caffeine, but you get an idea of how much gain it has on tap.
    Peavey CS200x SS poweramp. Carvin 4x12. Audix I5 and a Sennheiser e906.
