Told ya so! Much more gain than that and you'll be pushing the zone where note definition is replaced by fuzz! :rofl:Initial impression: Fucking awesome. Anyone who says this pre-amp doesn't have enough gain is fucking retarded. I mean that in the most derogatory way possible. There's actually a mod Steven Fryette put out because people (more than one) whined that it didn't have gain. Mine is unmodded and I don't even understand how someone would want to run more gain than this thing has. I'm running the gain on about 50% for rhythm, with a bit of a boost, and a little over half for leads, again with the boost engaged.
