I've got one on the way. I plan to use it to record and sometimes go direct. However, the main use would be with/without a load box, in order to practice with headphones at night or when I can't be loud. Not sure if I'll buy a preamp or not... Depends on how I end up liking the tone with my current pedalboard, I guess. I've read that a lot of you like the Kingsley pedals for this... If I decide I need a preamp pedal, which one do you all think would suit me? As far as load boxes, what simple inexpensive one do you all recommend? I really don't want to spend a lot.... I'm using a 1x12 Morgan AC20 Deluxe mostly, with these pedals. Note - I know about the Torpedo Live, but I'd prefer the pedal form factor, as I've got a small side board that will house my expression pedal and looper, as well as the Torpedo CAB.
