"How does it sound? In two words: shizzly dizzly! (That means great for those without the 2005 edition of the Hipster Dictionary). It has its own tone. If you use Neve and API as common reference points, I'd say that it can sound like both depending on how you set the Feedback. With the knob in the 9 o'clock to 11 o'clock range, it has that punchy fast slew-rate vibe of the API. When you turn it up, its more of the classic Neve vibe. However, throughout all this, its fundamental tone is big and round."
