    So I just picked this up a little while back so I could try one out finally, but surprisingly its not my thing. My tastes seem to be narrowing more and more on gear lately. Its in excellent condition and comes with the power cord, footswitch, and cable. It is the two channel rackmount version of the pedal preamp. The lower channel is channel one and is the "clean" channel while the upper row is the boost/distortion channel two. The preamp has two JJ's inside for tube tone and distortion. Its a cool box, and is one of the few preamps I have to cut the bass on (it has alot on tap if you want it!). Its engineered as a lower output level preamp then im used to, but has tons of internal gain for the second channel. It think im spoiled by the driving output of my Reiner. I loved it with my fender jazz, thought it was pretty dang good with my stingray, but didnt like it at all with my warwick, if that helps you know if it may be your kinda gear.
    Anyway, securely packed, shipped and insured in the lower 48 for $600.

    Im not sure I understand the question..
    Is a DAW a digital audio workstation?
    If so, i dont have one and no I have not. I just used it feeding a power amp to a cab, but I would assume it would work absolutely fine that way.

    Now with a demo!!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O3QAjrDq6ds&feature=youtube_gdata_player

    In the video I try to demonstrate alot of the tones it can do,and like most gear some are awesome, some are not so awesome, and some in between depending on individual tastes, but if ya watch most of it you'll get a good idea of the ranges it covers that appeal to you.

    Great demo. Bump for a great preamp at a fantastic price. The wait on these things is at least three months new.
