I'm in for the new Benson Preamp pedal. Based on Reverb Andy's demo, it seems to have a unique skill set and design. I have been a happy Monarch user for over a year now and have found that amp's tone to work exceptionally well for recording and live use. So I made the plunge in large part due to my trust in Mr. Benson's ears. If you want to hype this pedal, here's the place. Also feel free to post your real life reviews and experience here as well!
