    Winner !!!

    Truly an amazing piece of gear ! This pre sees a lot of action in our studio and it's well deserved. The character ranges from fairly clean to quite aggressive! Turning up the input gain and dimming the output trim will yield the most colored sounds from the unit and vice versa. The tone of the amp is VERY powerful, punchy and solid. You can't go wrong with this one !

    Worth every penny

    This pre is acoustically beautiful. It's really easy to quickly dial in the amount of saturation desired given the fact that it has input and output gain controls AND input/output meters. Want that classic nicely saturated iron transformer thick bass sound? Look no further! Plug in to the DI and be very happy (OK the bass/player matter some too..). The loading control is interesting - subtle, but there. Works great for overheads too! If only it had a line in - I keep wanting to reamp through it.

    Great Preamp

    This preamp is a studio workhorse. It is one of the best general purpose preamps out there. Sonically it's fairly clean, but the tone is variable because there are separate knobs for input and output levels in addition to a button that switches the impedance. Also the DIs are fantastic for synths/basses/guitars and have rock-solid low end.

    I use this ole pre on two AEA R84 ribbon mics plenty of SPL no problems there. Vintage sound maybe like an API don't know for sure. Also don't know why this isn't more popular this preamp as compared to vintech is FAR BETTER and even BETTER than the UA-2610S.

    Excellent Pre amp.

    I bought the Great River preamp just on two years ago, and have found it to be great on virtually everything, from vocals through to bass,guitar and keyboards. It is especially useful with ribbon mics, and the variable impedance loading feature, while rather subtle, does make a difference to the sound when the track is played back. It's quiet, and has a lot of gain on tap. I has hi-z inputs also, which is a bonus. As always, try it out, if possible, to see if it suits your needs, and has the sound characteristics you're after. If you're after a good allrounder, check it out. I give it a solid thumbs up.
