I've owned mine for a very long time. The preamp sounds AWESOME when it's working right. I've always had problems with it, I use to bring it in all the time for repair. Again the three channels (2 - Dirty & 1 - Clean) sound AMAZING and I'm pretty sure I'll never get rid of it, even though I don't trust it to function on stage anymore. If you can find one buy it, I'm sure you'll love it.
