This. Doesn't get any better,just different. Lindy Fralin makes one that will LZ1 all day as well but they're in the same price range(both worth every penny IMHO). On the cheap end the DMZ Pre-B1(is that right?) does the same thing and sounds great doing it.Not as good as a Lollar but not far off. It's just a one trick pony,but it does your favorite trick. Cleans up pretty nice with a roll of the volume knob too.
