Looking for a discussion of rack preamps with the hope of a developing a comprehensive thread that can help broaden my own and other's understanding of what is relatively appropriate for different playing styles, rig designs and tonal desires. Although it seems rack gear is slowly dying off, it seems appropriate to ask as The Preamp Gear Review Section only touches on four units, but there are some really great units still available these days. Personally, I seek warmth, clarity, articulation, responseiveness and magic all in one unit. I've gravitated toward the all-tube SVT tone although I've deeply appreciated SWR Engineering's GranPrix, likely the clean side of my style appreciating their efforts...and being that these are really the only two rigs I've really known intimately, I'm ignorant to that degree. Although, I have some experience with Tech 21's PSA-1, but I never was able to dial in anything inspiring. Seems like Jule Amps Monique is a starting point to capture all 5 of my holy requirements. Aguilar seems to have some promising options. At any rate, I'm not seeking just my own needs fulfilled so regardless of the tonal quality acheived from the respective unit you can contribute, please throw the experience out here to get this as comprehensive as possible. Thanks for your help, talk to you soon. If there is already a thread on this, please send me a link so I can sit in a corner an illuminate.
