Has anyone used this combination? I recently purchased a Puretone and am loving it. I play in a jazz funk trio and many of the places I play in are quite small venues. I am not after full out drive but am thinking that the Hot Plate would allow me to get those tubes working a bit harder and get me to the clean but slightly breaking up tone that I am after. My studio is also quite small (single garage size) so it should help with recording too. I have been reading some great things about the Hot Plate but would be very appreciative of any feedback from the knowledgeable members here.
