    Looking for (internal) preamps that have a level control, list what you got!

    I know of so far:
    Lakland LH-3
    Spector TonePump

    Also Audere 3Z, but only in Low-Z mode. Problem would be solved if the level control was in the normal Mid-Z mode!

    Any of them if you want to spend $2 on a trimpot and wire it after the preamp. Can't name any others of-hand, though.
