looking for a new tube preamp to match with my mesa coliseum 300 power amp.
im currently running an engl 530 pre. i dont like it.
it lacks the balls and bottom end i want.
apparently this thing is designed after the savage 120 head...which to my ears has tons of gain, but still sounds rather thin.

im thinking i want something more along the lines of a powerball type sound.

what tube pre will give me high gain and testicle dropping low end?

If you can't get a ballsy huge bottom end tone out of that preamp, then I think it may be your EQing or lack thereof


Mesa Tri axis or Rectifier preamps would do the trick
