    I'm re doing the studio and lining up my guitar preamps , I'm currious as to what we are using collectively.
    I know most of us use pedal boards , I use rack units , but in general they do the same thing .

    I'll go first
    I use:
    1) first gen pod Pro and footcontroller
    2) Behringer Bass Vamp
    3) BK Butler tube works Tube Driver
    4) Alesis Quadraverb GT
    5) ART SGE
    6) ART SGE Mach II
    7) 2X ART SGX 2000 ( one has upgraded Rom ) and X15 midi foot controller
    8) Roland GR55 gutar synth

    When I use an explicit device deliberately as a preamp, it is one of these:
    (a) a C. Anderton EPFM box I built (either the pre-amp, the dual-filter voicing unit, or the compressor); or
    (b) a PAiA tubehead.

    I was using a Marshall JMP-1 but, sadly, it's gone Wonky on me.

    I have a rack unit, pedal board and individual pedals for different rigs.

    The rack unit is an ART SGX-2000 Express into a Mesa Boogie M190 into a 12 inch Peavey Black Widow that is loaded into a peavey Futura rackmount sealed cab. I am using a Rocktron Silver Dragon pedal in front of that.

    My pedalboard has a Fryette Valvulator, Behringer VT999 Vintage Tube Monster, Fuchs Plush Valve Job and ann Line 6 HX Stomp. that is being run in stereo with a 69 Fender Bandmaster Reverb head for the left side and a Trace Elliott Bonneville 4X10 for the right side.

    I no longer own the Wampler Ego pedal and it has been replaced with the Behringer Vintage Tube Monster.

    This is my rack unit with a 1u space available for a tube preamp. If I could ever afford a Rocktron valve Sonic Plexi, Mesa Boogie TriAxis or Marshall JMP-1 or?

    Thank you kind sir. I have an Altec 1269 power amp that I am not using for the time being. Very heavy, well built amp.

    Quilter IB45, Quilter 101, and an old Tubeworks BlueTube II get used quite a bit here...rarely do I use a VST for distortion, opting for any number of pedals.

    Sadly, it is an issue that goes far deeper.
    It has to do with the Interface Controls ....
