- Solid steel chassis
- Carnhill Transformer
- The same hand-wired construction that BAE is known for
Solid construction. Big iron. When swapped out for the hi-z input in numerous preamps that I own there was a noticeable jump in fidelity. In comparison, there was less "quack" and mid-range harshness when playing a Korean 335 with humbuckers. Pleasing low end was a additional side effect. 4-stars for no pad, and the ground lift switch feels unsubstantial. Approaching this price point I expect premium..
