    How do you like this preamp?
    Is it as good as the Alembic?
    Do they sound the same?

    I like mine just fine.
    It's probably close
    It is a similar sound. I haven't heard the Alembic lately though.
    The trace has a mid-shift on the mid knob. Pull it out and it shifts the freq. point to 2k.

    Just got one myself.... Very pleased so far, but I have one question.... How can I tell if this pre was made after or before Gibson bought Trace Elliot from Mark Gooday?
