    Is anyone doing this? I am in a bit of a pinch for a pre-amp, but don't want to sound like crap...

    Works great. I run mine into a Peavey IPR1600. I'm really impressed with the WTDI. Great Eden tone in a little box, simple effective EQ, very good build quality, IMO.

    That is great news! I cannot find a simple rack mount preamp in town anywhere, but this looks promising!

    Well... I should have done this years ago... I play upright is rock bands. With the piezo pickup and the Eden alone it was a little muddy-but in a warm way. Combined with a little extra EQ from my Fishman Pro I am pretty sure I have never sounded better.
    I am looking forward to trying it live tomorrow.
    Thank you both for the recommendation!

    Be forewarned that there have been some problems with gain staging and clipping on these units - a number of guys have encountered this problem and it's been well documented on this site. I used to own one and it sounded great BUT I couldn't for the life of me turn the gain knob up two clicks past the 8 o'clock setting or the unit would clip badly. Meaning I couldn't push a lot of signal into my power amp even with the volume knob all the way up. My solution was to put a clean boost pedal in the chain after it. Otherwise a great little box.

    I run my gain at about 9 o'clock but that gives me plenty of signal. Sensitivity of the power amp would factor in to that I suppose. The Peavey IPRs work well with pretty much any good pre.
