    What is your opinion of this product?
    This thing is amazing for the price, but like I said in the headline it stands up to the 312API with flying colors. It's a touch brighter, but you have to have great ears to notice it. And TBH I prefer it. Also have been recording and playing live for 20yr's. It's amazing that nowadays you can get a great sounding pre for this price. Totally stands up to the $2000 pre's. You can use this on everything as well. Although I prefer SSL on bass this thing actually makes the bass sound more articulate, great on guitars of course, male vocals(tenors) sound really awesome(no female vox yet)and used it on snare so far, and it really brings out the snares in your tone. Buy this if your reading this your probably thinking about it, just do it you won't regret it.
