    For $30 I'd try it.

    I think my other gear would catch fire w a $30 pedal. Ears are not always a stable bench mark tool of measurement. Like is it said, if you can't hear it there is no problem.

    Go for it, if it is as good as the Tech 21 Blonde it should work great!

    First, I plan to try the Joyo Blonde copy.

    The Blonde pedal is pretty remarkable. I used one until I got the FlyRig5 (I needed reverb).

    Not really, the F1 is a Fender style preamp, the footswitch switches between the F1 preamp and a preamp in the loop, it was designed to work with another of the 1 series preamps in the loop for 2 channels.

    That one's still got two tricks, clean and dirty!

    What I need is a one trick pony.

    I dig rack gear myself. The PSA whips major ass on other preamps I went through and that includes a couple modeler units that sounded like Niagara Falls or had annoying clock tick artifacts on their "effects" circuit.

    Tech21 makes those smaller amp "character" pedals which are really better than one might think. The blonde can do clean Fender's like you would not believe. Tech21 often offers a Deluxe version of these on their web site for limited supply, they have more features and preset buttons. 100% analog they just sound better than most mimic pedals.
    The test for any good guitar preamp for me is the range of tones from clean to gains, how amp like and "tubish" they sound, few measure up to be sure.

    Yeah! The PSA-1 is a great preamp. It takes awhile to dial in, because the EQ is so sophisticated, and it goes well beyond t/m/b controls. But the Tech21 stuff is great.
