Hi kids. The upgrade has officially started. The first item has been on my list for a very long time. Chances are it will never leave my side. I have wanted a special chain for that great vocal sound, specific lead instruments etc, one that stays patched because it is what it is and it starts with a great preamp. (okay purists....I'm one....it starts with the source......but AFTER the source and the mic....) I have found and added a very good condition Groove Tubes ViPre. Aspen Pittman is a genius and this thing is proof of it. Next....Phoenix DRS-Q4 and a Summit DCL-200.
