- REVIEWS"MAN, what a difference it makes in tone. The quality of material and workmanship is unsurpassed. This pre-amp is truly a REVELATION. It has headroom for days, is quiet, powerful, and sounds awesome. If anyone questions if "it's worth it", the answer is ABSOLUTELY!!"Randy Blackwell"It is, hands down, the most gratifying piece of music gear I've ever bought."Bill Miller"I've been playing now for 40+ years. During this time, there were only a few years when I did not play with tubes in my sound. Today with the "Revelation Tube Preamp" and the super clean power amps, I feel like I get a tone that was never possible with the "vintage" gear. The "Revelation Tube Preamp" is a timeless piece of gear that will become the new classic. This piece of gear is not something that will be replaced when a new "fad" comes along. In my opinion, it is already a classic."Randy Beavers"This thing is AWESOME!!!!! The tone gave me chills and you couldn't wipe the grin off my face. So if you're looking for the ultimate steel tone, this Revelation is and will be the end of your search."Michael Hartz"The Revelation sounds outrageous!"Jay Ganz
