    NPD: neat distortion /clean preamp!

    Very cool distortion /utility pedal! Thunderclap by bardic audio devices. Its a 2 band clean preamp with a bendable gritty distortion circuit AND along with normal in/out has a DI out as well! I imagine bassists and people running modellers would get great use of this thing! The distirtion can...

    EVH 5150 III 50 w Stealth Preamp tubes

    Experimenting with different pre tubes. Have used Electro Harmonix 7025 and just ordered JJ EC803 High Performance. Recommend placement valves 1-4? Looking for something to push the Blue Channel (I prefer not to use overdrive) and to tame the compressed vibe of the Red channel. Thanks!

    Problem connecting modeler to amp

    Recently I bought a 1994 Digitech GSP 2101 preamp/effects processor. I intend to use it with a tube amp and use the processor just for the delay/reverb/harmonizer WHILE using the preamp/distortion of the amp head. I connected them using the 4cable method and encountered a problem. Along with the...

    KSR Ceres vs AMT SS-30

    Hi all, Wondering what your thoughts are on these two units. I have an AMT P2 and absolutely love it. Making a backup pedalboard in case my 5150 blows up. Wish the Ceres had a dedicated eq section for the clean channel, but it's less important than the quality of the gain channels. Other...

    Anyone have personal exp with the AMT Bricks P or B-Lead pedals??
