    Up for sale is a pretty much brand new Tech 21 dUg Pre-amp pedal. Decided to give it a try since I am a fan and had the pleasure of seeing dUg demo it at NAMM this year. This is a fantastic pedal, no doubt about it. While it may not be for everyone, it has many tone options from vintage to dUg/Squire sounds. It nails dUg's tone but also can be clean and well rounded. I am not a compressor fan but the one built into this is very nice. Tuner works great and the chunk/drive/gain combo can get you deep clank for days. Personally, I think this pedal is better than the Bass Fly Rig. I am releasing this one back into the wild because my SansAmp ParaDriver still gives me the tones I am looking for. Has all of the original goodies, power adapters, and tin.

    $265 shipped CONUS

    Trade interest - analog delay, Octave, envelope filters

    Ugh, I'm just leaving grad school so I'm between jobs so to speak. Can't wait to give this a spin. I sorta (read hate/love) appreciate that you referenced Squire. I haven't seen any direct comparisons in the main thread but I've always thought there was something very Squire-esque about the tone this pedal brings, i.e. suuuuuuuper supportive while also being able to be heard :)

    There's actually a YES setting in the manual.

    With so many brands out there, hard to do. No TC, MXR, Maxon, Boss, Digitech, Mooer. Have/had many of those. Higher end/boutique would be of more interest. Feel free to run more by me in PM. Worst you will get is a no thanks!
