    It looks a lot like my EBS valvedrive but has two tubes instead of one. Looks competitive at its price point.

    I'm tempted with it. Been looking for a Peavey Max rack preamp for while here in the UK and can't seem to find any. Plus, the added benefit of the pedal for portability me be useful

    I never saw that one before. it looks like it's well made. IMO, if it sounds as good as it looks, it's a bargain.

    That looks sweet. Valvedrive/V-Twin mashup without the dumb treadplate. Someone get one and report back!

    anyone get one? interested
  8. I have one. It comes with a 24 volt power adapter. I assume 6 volts for the blue lights around the tubes. The pedal sounds smooth and gets boomy easily. Plenty of bass even with everything set at 12 o'clock. I love it even though I haven't worked out how to control it yet.
