beefy little box, analog simulations are very nice and many opportunities to find or sought SONS.
Initially it's a DI with XLR and JACK choice.


the manual is in English (I'm terrible) but the chart with 12 positions of my settings enough to understand.
No editing is possible but all that simple.


simulations are immediately effective and surprising.
The realism I do not know, not everything in memory, but it gives very specific grains.
I use it mainly with JB STD 94 U.S. and Cort NB4FL so much as.
I do not use an amp on stage so direct power mixer Yamaha GF16.
among the 12 simulations suggested there are 5 that I have chosen and interresting:
KING 'S STYLE (saturation)

other simulations and sounds distos does not m'interressent and simulation REGGAE I find anywhere


Actetée used on AF 145 roros super state, and I use it for a few days (1 repeat).
So about 100 roros cheaper than new.
I have not tried other preamp (not found in 2 stores in Grenoble), simply followed the advice to AF.
The choice is not easy at Tech 21, but being a follower of AMPEG it seemed that this model will fit well and it is certainly better vrai.Il .... but too expensive to risk.
And yes the price is important, not too expensive and used for not regret and especially salable stuff and recognized, it is my principle too.
So the first review Q / P: TB case on occasion, nine no opinion since not compared to other preamps.
For now it's more than enough and with time I will certainly find other simulations interresting. I think when I mastered I go to resell it for programmable model.
