Sounds great, what more can you ask for
I've had this Pre for almost 4 years now. It was the first piece of gear I got to upgrade my signal chain, and I could tell the difference right away. Throw a cheap dynamic mic through this thing and it sounds 100x better. Put a quality mic through it and watch out.
The Hi-z input is also great for electric bass and guitar. Turn up the gain, throw on some compression, play softly, and you can get a consistent bass sound that would make Daniel Lanois or Tony Levin proud.
The compression on this unit can help bring up the low level details of a part in a very beautiful way. I once recorded a guitar straight into the HI-Z input. I played the G note on the 5th string and let the open 3rd string ring out. By cranking up the compression to bring up the sympathetic ring, I made that guitar sound like it had been recorded in a lush room.
Three big knobs makes this thing easy to use, and there are enough options to get a good sound down on tape or HD. You won't be using this thing for it's surgical precision, but if you are in the market for a piece of gear that just makes things sound better, then look no further
