I currently use an Ampeg SVP-PRO which is doing a fine job, and has a tonne of bells whistles and doovas that I don't use, like a bright switch, ultralow, ultrahigh, 10 band eq (which is really kinda cool), semi parametric mid eq... the list could probly go on a bit more. What I am now looking for is somehting really simple and good sounding. Can anyone recommend a really basic preamp that doesn't cost an arm and a leg? Can be tube, opamp, fet, whatever. Just something really, really basic and of decent quality.
