    Anybody tried one and care to report? I know East, Nordstrand, and Duncan make one, not really sure which one to go with. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    I have the East 2 band and it sounds like the real thing to me, at least when I compare it to the new Stingray classic.

    I have the Seymour Duncan but I've never used it, it came with my SD MM replacement pickup.

    I have the SGD 2 band pre currently installed in my SR4. It's set up as the high gain option that he does, and I have no complaints on the hardware. It's a very nice pre, but based on current threads and dealings with SGD I couldn't recommend it.

    If I were to get new preamp I'd probably look at the Nordstrand or the East as they seem to have what I like in a MM preamp.

    I put a Sadowsky preamp in my SBMM Stingray Classic with a Nordstrand and I haven't looked back. I had an East in there before, but I prefer having the ability to easily find "flat".
