For almost a decade now, my gigs have all been on in-ears, and amps have been replaced with great sounding DIs/preamps. I quickly learned that no pedal-pre could come anywhere close to the tone of my bigger, more expensive/fragile tube pres, until a friend recommended I try out the Capo. My mind was immediately blown and I haven’t played a gig without it since I got it! With so much going on sonically, it’s design is incredibly intuitive, and gives you the feeling that they really though of everything when they made this. It’s incredibly versatile, but it’s specialty is giving you that incredible tube/transformer saturation without a single tube in there! If you’re doing gigs with in-ears, rock a pedalboard, or want the best sounding portable DI/preamp for both recording and live playing, this thing is it!!
