I finally found the best full Tube preamp in pedal size for my torpedo cab .
FredAmp's Preamps are amazing , they blown me away .
The Crystal preamp is based on fender twin
JTBass is based on marshall jtm 45 and bassman fender
FPM100 is based on marshall jmp100
I use them with overdrive like maxon od808 , bogner blue and red , and it's great , very organic , dynamic .

Here are some videos in different styles and comparative between preamps and overdrive

I can only agree with that. I tried a lot of tube (or not) preamp pedals, and, as you already know marty, I think the Fredamp's are the best.
I already own the JTBass, and I'm going to get the new version of the Crystal next week :

Have either of you guys tried the Kingsley Juggler or Squire? Interested to hear how they stack up.

Never tried any Kingsley pedal eventhough they did interest me. But I've owned both AMT SS11, and an Effectrode Blackbird. The AMTs were good for the price, but the clean channel was a bit boring. The Effectrode Blackbird didn't have enough volume, and I didn't like it at all (but the pedal itself was beautiful).

No i just started looking at nixie power supply designs and went from there, i have been building pedals and modding amps since 2005 or so.

First one i have built so far is an orange ad200b bass preamp. Over time i plan on building many.

Marty, AC/DC expert question, from the original, the "A" chord in the main riff. I hear a C# bass (ie A/C#) on perhaps one of the tracks and prefer to play it that way. Not everyone agrees with me....(on this...and other things lol)

What are your thoughts on this?

I know you didn't ask me but.....Your question sparked my curiosity and after listening to it again you're definitely right. I hear that C# too.

How do these things sound when hit with fuzz? either gated (say a penny pedals fingerprint or fairfield circuitry unpleasant surprise) or really big, sludgy fuzz (DAM meathead for example). while its easy to get good overdriven sounds with a CAB, fuzz always fails me, nowhere near to sounding like running through a real amp.

Hey Marty,

Your post(s) are great! Is there any way to learn more/purchase fredamp solutions in the US? I tried to send an enquiry via their website with no response. My band is heading back out with a "silent stage" model and both me and our other guitarist would rather run pedalboards with something like fredamp preamps plus effects into a torpedo cab on our pedalboards and let our PA do the heavy lifting. Thanks for your demos and time.

-Chris

Hey Andy!

As I hear it Mal is playing the C# and Angus is playing the regular A-chord so it mixes in a cool way :-)

Thanks Ulf, I like this....funny really, all the debates about similar poly chords.....All Right Now by Free and Photograph by Def Leppard, nobody seems to talk about this one....of course, Hard Day's Night is the king.

btw back on topic, still mixing and remixing my "fuzzes" demo...it's an early 70's power trio vibe and the problem I'm having is my bass is completely lost on laptop speakers...gonna try with a different bass mix ...more in a Tim Bogert/ Felix Pappalardi vibe perhaps :gethim: .... I don't want to add an upper octave (a la Waves MAxxbass)...it'll sound like unquantized Muse :no:

The last baby of Fredamp , the 70's Overdrive .
it's a full tube preamp based on the Dumble with an overdrive , the hot scream .
With the torpedo cab i have an amazing clean like john mayer , mark knopfer ... and a very rich and organic overdrive like zz top , bonamassa ...
The F.A.C 666 Boost is a clean boost .
