Comments about Dtar Solstice Blender Preamp:
I'm using this Solstice for a guitar with a Highlander UST, and for a Heil dynamic mic which I put on the same guitar. I was previously running both directly into a Mackie 1202 mixer. The Solstice makes a definite improvement in quality of the UST as expected. However, it does not have eq in the band which would help with the quack. Also, using it as a pre for the dynamic mic provides a decent sound, but I must say that the mic plugged right into the board souds more open and better. I like the layout and features, but I expected more from the sound quality. I will use it, simply because it provides me with controls right at my side, but I cannot say it has improved my sound as I had hoped for.
