pics first... Had to get creative with my power conditioner to fit the preamp in my rack. I put it on the backside. It's a little crowded but works well! I saw this Hafler T3 on CL, had never heard of it. Checked it out on Youtube and it sounded great so I went and picked it up. Put it in my Pod's FX loop to use as another "model". It sounds excellent! First time I have heard a preamp in the loop sound better than the models. Really adds some girth, harmonics, and smoothness kinda missing from the preamp models (which I thought were great anyway). I still have to test at a gig or practice, but so far it seems like this is really going sound great and be a major part of my tone. Will use for main Rhythm and Lead patches, then use the models for cleans and other FX types patches.
