    I'm looking for a pedal pre-amp, and I'd like it to be polivalent and have some distortion as I'd use it sometimes.
    More or less they cost the same.

    I had a Sansamp and a Valvedrive and I didn´t like them...

    I must recognice the Tronographic has some advantage because I like to use things that little people has... :rolleyes:

    Which of these two?

    The bass is a Ibanez with Nordstrand Big Singles, downtuned.

    Thank you!

    Wow! 4 points to the Rusty, 0 to the Aggie!

    Why?
     
  7. And here's yet another vote for the Rusty Box. Why? Because it sounds good (according to the videos and sound clips I've heard), because it looks cool, and because it's somewhat unique.

    Also, the Tone Hammer is more likely to sound more like the Valvedrive and the Sansamp that you've already had, and disliked, than the Rusty Box is. After all, the Tronographic pedal is set out to emulate a transistor amp, not a valve amp like the others.

    Wow, great point of view here.
    I think I'm getting the Tronographic.

    Thank you!
     
  9. Any time! :)

    And if you do get a Tronographic, please post a review.

    I like that 800rb grind so I'd go with with the rusty box.
