    go to and listen to the slap licks on the preamps they tested.

    i personally liked the alembic F1-X best.
  3. SWR is another excellent choice.
  4. Tha new Rocktron rackmount Blue Thunder has some great slap sounds blown in, along with hush, aural exciter w/ big bottom, hush and all the goodies! just got mine and it's smokin'
