So I switched to a preamp/poweramp setup recently. I'm currently using an Ibanez ATK through a BlueBeard Fuzz into a SansAmp RBI pre. No doubt the RBI is a great preamp, and I knew what I was getting into as I use a BDDI at home to play with my headphones, but the RBI just isn't fully what I want in a preamp when using it at full volume. I'm not sure how to describe it, but I'll put the settings around the SVT suggested settings, boost my mids a bit and then when I try to turn up the drive knob I just don't like result. I tried using my ODB-3 to add some overdrive but it's too much of a distortion pedal to do what I'm looking for. I loved the tone I got with my SVT-3 with the tube overdrive set to max. I'd appreciate any suggestions for some other preamps to look at, as I'm relatively new to the pre/power game. Tried using the search function but I couldn't seem to get my search terms to bring back what I was looking for.
