    Greetings, I haven't really introduced myself so I though I'd start off with a little show and tell....

    I decided to get a Siegmund Micro Tube Overdrive instead of the Sansamp because it has a real tube in it, it was cheaper (used) and believe it or not it's smaller!

    So far I have only tried it with my Fender RAD practice amp and it did do a very good job in warming it up and giving me a B-15 like tone. I haven't messed around with the over drive settings but I planing on trying it with my main rig soon.

    Anybody ells have experience with Sigmund products?Apparently they are pretty well known in the guitar world.

    Looking forward to hear what you think about the overdrive sound of it. :hyper:

    Does it work as a DI?

    I got it off of ebay. This is model discontinued. I wanted the Micro Tube DoubleDrive but it's pretty expensive new. You can only get it direct from Sigmund. Here is the URL: http://www.siegmundguitars.com/tubepedals.html

    No, but I have MXR DI to take care of that.

    Isn't the MXR the same the Sansamp, functionwise?

    Ouch that's expensive! Or well, as expensive as sansamp and sadowsky preamps I guess :)

    Any chance that you could do a soundclip mate? Eventually one with clean and one with the drive ;) would be more than great!

    Thanks!
