    Sup TBers, the title pretty much says it haha, Just want to know what sound each gives you, and which you'd recommend.

    I like a Jazz tone with a bit more bottom end

    Two totally different animals. The Glockenklang has a mid scoop but pretty tight bass and nice highs, basically a more modern sounding tone whereas the Aguilar is going to be more mid focused nice bass but not as tight sounding as the Glock. The Aguilar will give you a lot more mid grind and cut. Also makes a difference on the pickup your are pairing with either preamp.

    +100!

    The Aguilar will have a warmer and definitely more powerful sound. I honestly believe these preamps are meant for different things. If you are a tone fanatic, as far as crystal clear transparency and not so much concerned with big adjustments, then the Glock is for you. This is more of a "boutique" preamp in that it's more about refining the existing sound. However, this doesn't mean it's "better" than the Aguilar. They are just meant for different purposes.
