    Has anyone compared the clean tone only of the fender to the Alembic? Supposedly they are the same. The fender sounds very interesting to me. ........most gear is though!

    Early morning bump. I am sure that this has been covered but the search function is down. :meh:
     
  3. I haven't tried the alembic, but I did try the Fender, and it was ok to my ears... little bit of a vintage type sound, not fast and hi-fi like alot of the SS preamps on the market at the moment - IMO

    Thanks, anyone else like to add something? I figure that if it sounds like an Alembic plus has a few other options, it may be a good next toy. I think Tombowlus has one.

    No head to head, but a great sounding pre.

    If anyone is selling an F-2b, let me know. I would like to mod one so that I could bypass the eq. Now that would be cool! :hyper:
