Hey everyone, I got to check out Pete's prototype today. Im really at a loss for words to how to properly describe it. It sounds very clear and crisp, with a great vintage sorta sound. It could deffinantly pull off some major growl if wanted as well. The EQ bypass was awesome sounding as well. It really tranlates the sound of the bass used very well. We compared it side by side next to the Alembic FX-1 which I've always thought sounded really good. The only thing I can say about the comparison is Pete's pre made the Alembic sound like mud. Chords, fingerstyle nuances, every little thing comes through. Sorry Im not as much of an audiophile as some of you fellas to provide a more in depth review of the pre, but as best I can say it is it was one of the nicest sounding tone devices I've heard so far. Hopefully Pete can get one off to Basstasters once its finalized so everyone can judge for themselves.
