I've been looking for inexpensive pre that I could plug my Sansamp DI into to boost its output voltage and go directly into a power amp. I dont want to alter the Sansamp. I found this the other day at the Guitar Center. Its got a 12ax7 in it and retails for only $99. Seems like it might be a good solution. http://www.presonus.com/html/products/tubepre.html Whatdayathink? A.
