Hey there, I was wondering if anyone has ever tried one of these preamps with an electric guitar. I can find some reviews on the net but they all seem to be with respesct to bass, not guitar. The nearest dealer that carries Tech 21 products is quite a hike for me, but hopefully I can make the trip soon to try it out for myself.


I like Tech 21 stuff, but I don't see why you'd want this for guitar. Any kind of overdrive/distortion you might get out of it would be pretty basic. You'd need to park a distortion pedal or multi-effects box in front of it to get any kind of versatility out of it.

No matter what, you should not buy this without demoing it first.
