    I have the Sadowski outboard pre. I pretty sure it will not drive a power amp. Even it it could I woundn't reccomend it. Not quite enough tone shapinf for that.

    Sansamp and EBS will drive a power amp I'm sure of it, don't know about the others
     
  10. The EBS could drive a poweramp, but it doesn't have a very high output signal, so I doubt you would be able to push the amp as hard as you could... I've had problems getting a loud enough signal out of it for recording into PRO TOOLs
