I have collected a lot of analog pres overtime and collected pres ITB. There is a reason why analog is always the best option. This pre is probably the cleanest out of all the pres I have. When I push this units input gain there’s this nice sweet saturation that you can hear but the source material still maintains this clarity. This is great on everything. I prefer it on drums and guitars. The build is very solid. I find the orange color to be very attractive and it stands out from everything else In my rack. If you want quality at a price point that’s reachable here is a great preamp for you.

This is my first ever preamp I have bought and I am absolutely blown away with the impact it had on my recordings. This and a little tape saturation will really kind of add life to the mix you are working on.
