It was, I had one for several months testing it. But, though it may have been awesome, I decided it wasn't awesome enough and sent it back. The EQ, while sweet, was limited and usually required more processing later in the mix. 3k is just so important to me and 2.5/4k just didn't give me the grab I wanted. The pre was great, but sort of clean. Though not a bad quality, I just liked driving it a little hot for excitement. Loved it with a 57 on a old 65' Deluxe. Talk about a clean tone!
