I am hoping this product will last a few years. The only thing that might be handy is a built in AB input selector. I just added an external one for handling multiple instruments ...
I play Celtic style acoustic mandolin and need clean amplification to let the original sound of the instrument come through. This preamp produces a clean sound with minimal effect on the original acoustic instrument sound. The preamp is compatible with any style music. The equalizer settings allow you to tune it to a variety of venues.
I really like the feedback filter, the boost button and the cool tuner. It could use an on/off switch to save battery life.
Ease of Use
The interface is fairly intuitive. But if there are questions, the owners manual covers the details carefully.
Well made. Seems rock solid so far. I am using in the studio and on the road. It packs up quickly it it's own custom case.
It seems a tad pricey, but I shopped around carefully and it is very competitive compared to similar models on the market.
Manufacturer Support
No repairs needed so far.
The Wow Factor
