Anybody got any comparisons to offer, gripes to list, or shameless plugs? Are they too similiar to matter? Also, with the MAG series now running just $299 (made in china), what do you think about slapping a nice tube pedal/preamp in front and saving a couple hundred bucks? FWIW, my current tone preferences run from hammond organ style sub-mud to vintage-copping Saadiq or Kravitz with a little salsa/reggae dub and p-bass mid-cut thrown in here and there. In other words, thick and not too broad.
