Ok...I had another posting on here about preamps for a QSC poweramp, but now I have another question. I heard somewhere that instead of a preamp you can use a Boss eq pedal instead and it will serve all the functions of a preamp (the tone shaping plus the extra boost you need to drive the poweramp). I was just wondering if this was true and if so if any of you have experience doing this and what your results were. If it works I think I will do this until I have enough money to buy a "real" preamp. Thanks!
