What are your experiences?
I'm contemplating to buy Kingsley something, still didn't decide what specifically. I'm torn between Maiden, Squire or Page. Anyone have experience with Kingsley into Amplifire?

I haven't used any tube preamp pedals but I hae run the preamp of my Mark V:25 into the Amplifire for power amp modeling + IR loading. Works great! You'll have lots of tone flexibility with that combo.

I haven't used a tube pre, but I have run an Xotic SL Drive with the EL34 power amp modeling and IR turned on with pretty good results. The Xotic SL Drive through a clean setting on a Frenzel preamp into a Two Notes Torpedo CAB used to be my main non amp/head rig before I bought the Amplifire. I think the SL Drive into the power amp modeling on the Amplifire was just as good as my other setup, so I would bet the Kingsley pedals into the Amplifire would work just fine. I have almost pulled the trigger on a Kingsley Squire, and/or Constable several times, but I have been really happy just using the Amplifire.

I'm interested in reviews of the Amplifire's tube power amp sims when used with tube preamps (might get one for a smaller Synergy based tube preamp rig, smaller than my Torpedo CAB/Axe FX Ultra/RM-2.

I've used a Barber Barb EQ, an Ethos and a custom Polytone preamp pedal - all with great results. Actually much better than the modelling of the Amplifire (I only play clean, though)
