Looks like this is going to be one of the coolest preamps ever, and I won it!

Isn't that the same price as from partsexpress?  I'm too lazy to check right now.

A dollar or two cheaper. I got tired of trying to find bargains. Now all I need now is a PS PCB. When's Brian coming back to life?

Oh wow, didn't notice.  I know he's a real busy guy.  I'll see if I can catch him on aim and see whats going on.

**edit**
I talked to him and he's been super busy at work, plus he is out of a few PCBs, so he is just taking a break till everything calms down/things come in the mail.

It came in! w00t!!!  I've only played it a little, but I really like it so far.  I will have to get some clips of it later.  It will probably be a coupe days because I am finishing up the semester, and then visiting the parents over the weekend...so it might be a week or so.  If I can fit it in before then I will though, this thing rocks!  I wouldn't say it makes my lm3886 sound like a marshall per-se, but it does kick ass.

In a similar vein, I've ordered a Dr. Boogie PCB which I'm going to build as soon as it comes in to try as a front end for the LM3886 amp. It's been described as sounding best with a bright SS amp. Hopefully it will make a kick-a$$ second channel.

Sweet!  It's good that we will have some documented proof of how different preamps effect the lm3886 setup.  I'd like to see someone try one of those cheapie behringer preamps and see how that does.  I'm contemplating buying one later in the summer if no one else does, they look neat.

So far the DRP-1 seems to like my strat repro more than my Lyon, that could be that I only have a working neck pickup on the Lyon though, I want to see what it does with a bridge humbucker.

Here are some sound clips.  Before you listen, keep in mind I've only been playing a few years, and not as much as I should...I'm still a newb when it comes to playing lol. 

No pedals/amps/speakers used, it went:
Guitar -> DRP1 -> laptop
