    Are you having something built, Adron?
    My new FBB will have the Bart NTMB w/ 3 J's;
    I've got the Aguilar in the DB924 format.
    If the East is the same as the J-retro, I hope to get one of those too, once the pedal version comes out.

    We could do a 3-way with them-
    Let me rephrase that...
    a preamp taste-test shootout?

    Hehe...
    As of now I'm still considering my options. I'm debating now between a Warwick and having an FBB built. They're both gonna be a ways off, though. What are you having Matt build you now?

    Just to clear this up....the "East Preamp" is indeed the "U-Retro" preamp built by John East in the UK that I distribute here in the US. One of my dealers didn't like John's name of his unit a few years back and decided to call them "East Preamps".

    Sorry for any confusion.
