  • Victory Amps The Sheiff V4 Preamp

    Victory Amps The Sheiff V4 Preamp - "Victory Amp's Answer to the Marshall Plexi"

    06/10/19

    SOUND: The Sheriff V4 Preamp (same sound as from The Sheriff amp) has a full-bodied Marshall Plexi sounds; and so, if you want to integrate that sound with an amp you already have (via the FX Loop) or as a stand-alone pedal while recording or direct…

  • Night Owl Industries Edison Preamp

    Night Owl Industries Edison Preamp - "Easy to Use with an Improvement in Sound" has images

    03/31/19

    SOUND: As a stand-alone preamp, the Edison is very clear, yet full-bodied. When hooking it up to an Axe-Fx II (with Marshall cab simulation), the first thing I noticed is how ‘amp-like’ the sound was… headroom and dynamics without that processed so…

  • Victory Amps V4 The Countess

    Victory Amps V4 The Countess - "Fantastic Cleans and Chewy High-Gains"

    02/28/19

    SOUND: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IICMPtYiv8&feature=youtu.be Incredible tone driving this 4-valve preamp barely scratches the surface. I’m in awe at the Countess V4’s clean channel, with its vibrant, detailed and glassy tones, ranging f…

    Victory Amps V4 The Kraken - "True Valve Sound and Great Gain Tone" has images

    01/10/19

    SOUND: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--oDpgGEVlw&t=2s Working with a beast that has four valves produces such a lively and incredibly detailed and responsive tone that you become aware of why the digital/modeling age hasn’t quite caught up wi…

  • Carvin Quad X-Amp

    Carvin Quad X-Amp - "Overkill....The Right Way"

    01/17/15

    I bought this preamp and amp (T-100) as a pair in April, 1994 (I think). The T-100 stb during a rehearsal. The Quad X has remained a highly-valued part of my rack simply for the sounds it brings to the table. Channel 1 is a twangy Fender Tweed…

  • Peavey Rock Master Tube Preamp

    Peavey Rock Master Tube Preamp - "This Has Nothing To Do With The 5150."

    11/21/13

    Lately, I've been reading where people are making claims that the Rockmaster preamp was the "inspiration" for the Peavey 5150 amplifier. It was not. I worked for Soldano back in the 1980's. Ed Van Halen came in and bought three SLO-100 heads. He took…
