4 channel tube preamp, pedal format, with a red box output + output directly integrated amp and guitar amp (preamplified).


Super simple setup. The manual is useless.

To find the sound you want, it's pretty simple, when we know the pedal, there is still time to adapt.


For grain, have love, or not, but me it's the best I've found!

I played with several guitars, I made myself (I made the violin as an amateur) and a vox night train with a 15W 4X12 celestion kustom equipped with baffles.

What I like best is inimitable and grain are the red box built for the recording studio, I add it with two mics on the speaker and adds an enormous precision.

The least is that it blows, but it is mainly a result of adjustment, I found my sound on the blues with the gain channel has almost the bottom, it's ultra rock, with a better dynamic than the rock channel.

So it's not really a weakness ...


My disto official for 10 years I have different distortion and od, but for various things, I worked for several years in the studio right, I found full of groups with lots of distortion, but nothing that I was fact changed his mind.

I love the sound of this preamp on the other hand, and architecture are average, I wish I had the same architecture as the tubman 2, which is perfect, but that does not come close to the ankle (sound level) to my taste.

I was cold for 3 years, because the lamp was tired and a few years ago H & K did not sell their retail lamp, I tested a lot of lights and sounds like none of his original lamp. the blows she finished the closet for almost three years, until the day I found lamps H & K.

Despite these small negative details, its level is the best for me and I rachèterais if a mine has just died.
