Got the Quilter in trade and decided to give the herbert preamp a try. This is my first setup like this so idk what to compare it to. Sounds sick in the room and is plenty loud. This will hopefully save my back some All I need is my pedalboard now. I do really like these both but the Herbery really makes me want to try some other pre amp pedals. It was pricey and while it made me smile I cant help but to think I could probably cop some great tones for half the price with the tight metal or something.
