Yeah can’t wait for the Horse to show up! Have also requested to go on the waiting list for a Royale just in case it’s amazingExcellent choice on the Golden Horse!! I've not played the DS I'm afraid - but I believe it's designed to be boosted into by a Squire DS for the 'complete' Dumble front end type thing. Running it standalone, it's pretty much the same as the standard Page, but with slightly less bass & treble/a more mid-rich sound....or so Simon says!
Ok so the DS is more suitable for using it as an actual preamp and the regular one better for front of amp? Makes sense. Think I’ll get the same. There is one on eBay but not into the price so I’ll get myself on the 7 month waiting list!
