    I'm doing this with an Aguilar Ag500 and a SVP-PRO, though I'm running the preamps in parallel. Seems to work pretty good... add tube dirt, keep lots of punch...

    Well, it's solid state, but I use a Grace M103 channel strip sometimes and it sounds amazing.

    Love the Summit TD-100, and yes, it can work great upstream of a solid state head, either plugged into the "power amp in" or run through the entire front end using the instrument speaker jack.

    Lots of cats have done the same thing with the Jule Amps Monique pre. I like bringing my Monique along to gigs with a provided backline. It can make a big improvement, as it did at this gig:

    yep,
    im trying out a epifani ps1000 and was wondering what a td100 would do in front.

    hoping to warm it up a tad.

    thanks

    The TD-100 is more about clean/pure/harmoic than it is necessarily "warm." The Jule Amps Monique will definitely warm things up (though is a good bit more costly). I love, love, love the TD-100. Just don't expect it to be noticeably warmer than the PS1000 on its own.
