The preamps are amazing on some things and just good on others. To me, it sounds the best on toms. In conjunction with an MD421, it's the biggest tom sound I've ever heard. Pretty good on kick too, if you are looking for a really tight sound. The preamp will distort in a cool way too. If you turn the output fader way down and turn the preamp all the way up on a DI electric guitar, it kind of reminds you of some of the beatles' guitar tones. Kind of fuzzy and up front. It's cool for vocals too. I will admit, it can get a little too in your face at times. It isn't shy, let's put it that way. It sounds nice on electric guitar cabinet sometimes.

Fletcher is right about the eqs. They are great. Not very neve-ish or API-ish. Definitely their own thing.
