    Hey man, just workin' hard and tryin' to help out over here. The good news is, I'll be back in a few weeks. If the Read is still around, you might be getting a PM from me!

    I so want to make you an offer on this. I have a Fender TBP-1 that I use for gigging because of some convenient features and an Alembic F-1X that sounds better, but still isn't able to get quite as tubey as I'd like. I have heard that Jorg demo'd a tube pre at Bamm, but gave no other info. I wish I knew the right answer for a bit more tubey warmth.

    Just out of curiosity, what made you sell the Read over the Kern? I'm guessing that at this price point it comes down to preference rather than any flaws so I'm sure that it's not that either was lacking.

    Mine too; I used to own both as well. If you get around to sellin' that Kern, PM me. I think I like the Kern a little more, but both are just super preamps, and I don't believe I'll be parting with the Read or the next Kern I can get my hands on.
