What We Think - Phoenix Audio DRS-Q4 Review

The Phoenix Audio DRS-Q4 grows on your really fast. You don??t have to overdrive it; sure you can balance a high output with lower input and get a harmonically rich sound that sweetens your tracks mids, but you know you want to overdrive it. Talk about adding some growl to a bass guitar, or extra sizzle to a snare. This is a very cool pre amp. I will admit, I like it to be on the cleaner side for my guitar tracks, but there is something about the edge it adds, will have you experimenting with sound. Oh, did I forget to mention it has a killer EQ to contour the character of your tracks, so you can make them that much better on the way in? Well, it does.
