    I never use the mids with my Roscoe. I'm very curious about the Pensa preamp. I'm thinking of putting a buffer in my bass to push the Barts and then going into a Pensa preamp pedal. Anyone experienced the Pensa pre?

    The Pensa preamp was designed by John Suhr. I've used one and it's a great 2 band preamp. Go to Suhrguitars.com and order one direct.

    Doug, Pensa sells it under their name. John designed it though. I've used a Suhr 3 band and it was awesome. Great preamp.

    Rudy Pensa is the owner of Rudy's 48th street manhattan. Suhr worked there in the early 90's and that's where the Pensa Suhr union started. Jimmy Coppolo of 50th street guitars also worked there at the time and it was Jimmy who told me alot about John Suhr day's at Rudy's then at Fender.
