i've been recently considering of getting a preamp/power amp set up and seen tons of rewiews on it, that are quite mixed. i was wodering which pre-amp would work well for the type of music i play, i mainly play hardcore kind of stuff (bleedin through, on broken wings, as i lay dying, etc. for those that are unfimiliar). i also would like something that would go good with like indie rock that i like to mess around and play on the side. i've read that the rbi seems to go rather well with more modern rock type styles. but wantes more input on the two pre-amps. which would you think would suit me better? im not sure if theres really a place by me that has one to try out so i might have to go the used route and want to make sure i waste as little money as possible in this process that is why im asking for input. and thanks for taking the time to read this and helping me out in any way.
