    Product Rating What is your opinion of this product? I've had a chance to work with this unit for about a week now in a couple of different ways. Used as a bass preamp after Music Man Stingray bass with a 1600 watt power amp and 10" & 15" bass cabs... Sounds killer. Lots of room to dial in, lots of tones, from warm R&B thump to deep and bright rip-your-lips-off. The EQ section is responsive, the Drive knob has surprising range as does the Presence knob. All the knobs have a firm quality feel to them. The power switch is firm and heavy duty. I tried the preamp with a Fender Am Dlx Stratocaster and guitar pedalboard with power amp and 12" guitar cabs... Again, very impressed. Has a Fender-y overdrive and feel that sounds killer with a Strat. You can really highlight the bright plucky characteristics of a Strat with this "bass" preamp. Plenty of output to drive my QSC PLX 1602 to its full power and beyond. I'm keeping it. I can see this being very handy in a number of situations.
