I want to buy a decent tube preamp to warm up my sound. I'm looking at the ART Pro Channel and the Groove Tubes The Brick. (my budget is around $350.00) I'm going to be using this primarely for recording electric guitar direct but also for vocals. I'll be running my pedals through the tube pre into an ADA Microcab then into my emu 1212m. feel free to recommend other preamps if you think both of these will suck with electric guitar.
