Review: Sound Valves SV-100 Preamplifier

Category: Preamps

Bang for the buck, this is the best preamp there is. For a few dollars in parts, it can be turned from a really nice musical preamp into an awesome preamp which I seriously doubt can be bettered for less than $2,000 in the retail market, it is THAT good. Due largely to the J-Fet design, it has a nice warm, musical tube like sound. Toss in 6 Black Gate caps, 7 UF4007 diodes, and this little preamp will amaze you.
