    Great preamp pedal. Bought it to try to replace my Basswitch IQ/DI as it's a lot smaller and uses the same preamp. It's a great sound, adds harmonic overtones to your signal like a tube amp. I wish they would build it into the IQ, but I can't live without the DI, so passing it along.

    Includes the original box, so you can take it to practice and impress your bandmates.

    US$220 shipped USA / Canada

    I absolutely love mine! BTW, the Sonic Spark is very different from the preamp in the IQ. The IQ's preamp is at the very beginning of the chain, and is a 4-band EQ. Conversely, the Sonic Spark is a tonal enhancer that is designed to respond and sound like a great tube-preamp. I keep my Sonic Spark in the serial loop of the IQ so that my whole chain passes through the SS magic. Have you considered using both together?

    Is this something like a BBE Sonic Maximizer?

    That's a good idea.
    The RMI site says it uses the same pre as the IQ, but I'm going to give your suggestion a try -- might end up keeping it then.
    Thanks

    The website does indeed say that, but they're simply referring to the JFET input stage (very transparent); after that, both of these guys are totally different and absolutely awesome together :thumbsup:
