Right now I have a peavey vmp-2 that I'll probably be selling. I like the sound I'm getting on it from guitars and bass, but on drums (kick and snare) it just wasn't fast enough for me. Didn't get a really good crack or a defining kick sound.

I want to get a 'fat' sounding dual mono pre under 1k. Are there any worth considering in that price range?


I too started with just the Peavey VMP-2. But I ended up buying the Seventh Circle Audio rack with a pair of N72's (a Neve 1272 clone, similar to the Vintech 1272) and a pair of J99's (a clone of the Hardy Twin Servo 990)

Read a review here:

The point is, you can start with a rack and power supply with 1 or 2 modules, and then add more of the same or different flavors as you are able. I am personally looking forward to a pair of the A12's which are an API 312 clone.

Good hunting.
