  1. Anybody have one of these units. I have been considering it but I am still not sure. How does it sound? Any feedback is welcome. oh yea, is it at all possible to get a fuzz sound out of it? Thanks Nate

    I have one, and love it. It sounds like a SABDDI (surprise!), but also has mid control. Nope, no fuzztone that I've found, but very nice, smooth tube amp emulation. It does a nice SVT!

    As HeavyDuty said,
    The RBI is just basically the rack version of the bddi.

    How quiet is the RBI? Any hiss?

    How hot is the output? I'm looking for a pre that can drive a QSC PLX. So far everything I've tried has to be maxed out, thus hissy.

    (I can't find any specs on the Tech21 website, just marketing hype.)

    Thanks

    Mine is as quiet as a tomb. No problems driving my Carvin, even at reduced gain.
