    I use a Tone Hammer regularly on sessions and love the tone I get, as do the engineers and artists. Really easy to achieve warm old school tones yet not too coloured if you dont want. The AGS Gain circuit is quite useful and musical too.
    I dont use the paradriver, so I dont have much of a reference unfortunately, but I do use a Sansamp VT into a Radial JDI, and get good results as well, but definately a more coloured preamp. I would presume the paradriver would be fairly coloured too?

    I own both. The Tone Hammer can get a more aggressive distortion than the ParaDriver. The AGS gives a strong overdrive signal when cranked. The ParaDriver is more subtle with its Drive control. Both have excellent EQ sections with semi-parametric mid, and both are of very high quality construction. I'd say the Tone Hammer is more versatile, with a broader range of tones and distortion levels, if you're into that sort of thing. I like them both.
