I have the Rockett Blue Note and really love it for lower gain tones. It seems a bit more open and natural than my BB Preamp MB which I use for a mid gain tone. So will the Animal give what I like so much in the Blue Note, but in a higher gain version? I think I read somewhere that someone found the Animal a bit too smooth and fusiony, and that is how I look at the BB Preamp MP, and its is great for that tone too, but I'm wondering if the Animal is more open? I am also considering the Rockett Flex Drive, but I'm not sure how it differs from the Animal. I play them mostly into a clean amp (Kingsley Bailey) with single coils.
