Hey guys Im soon gonna buy a torpedo cab sim since I have to go direct to pa system at my church because of some reasons and I was wondering which preamp pedal is the best that can give me that mojo that a tube amplifier does or just any good amp ... And at the same time doesn't exceed from 300$? I dont want any dirt preamp pedals tho because i already have a BB preamp and soul food as my overdrive pedals and they are gonna do their job. I just wanna a good substitute from an amp preamp sound that way I can do my mastering on trebble,bass and gain as an amplifier does. (I was looking at the giggity and is a good pedal but Idk if is good enough to work alone without and amp.)
The Tech 21 Sansamp "Character" pedals should work well in that application. I have the "British" (Marshall type), and use it both as a preamp and as a pedal in front of an amp. They are analog, and have a very wide range of tones available.
