    How does the Thunderfunk meassure up to the EBS Fafner or other EBS heads. The Fafner can be found used at the same price as a new Thunderfunk over here. How do they compare soundwise?

    Ashdown you say?
    How close does the Ashdown come to the TF? Ashdown´s are much easier to come by here.

    I used to have an Ashdown RPM-1 preamp before getting my Thunderfunk. They have fairly different tones. The Ashdown is very heavy in the lows (though defined) and lacking somewhat in the highs. The Ashdown really colors the tone (though that can be good, if you like it) whereas the Thunderfunk does have some mild color, it is a more pure tone IMHO. To me (and to the rest of my band) there is a big difference and we all agree that the Thunderfunk sounds better, but as always YMMV.
