I know Joe Red is MIA but I've always been interested in the bass quake.

Not everyone who owns a sound, or engineers a sound, is qualified to operate a full bloodied pre-amp, without getting over excited, and blowing stuff up.

Is better a potential pre-buyer, go to gigs, to hear sounds who play with different pres, to get and idea, of what brand he likes, and what would give what he is looking for.

Also, buying new pre is a minefield, as few builders out there, will have you pay now, receive item years later, or not at all.

We have very short signal path from turntable to speakerbox and would like to keep it clean(just more dirty bassBig smile), any recommendations or point me in a direction for research?
Signal path is- turntable,  mixer, K20&X8, scoops, hd's, mids, tops & tweets.
Many thanks in advance.  T.

Cheers kr1, I gave that a listening to. I think Bassquake is the unobtanium of choice for us right now.
