"I've had the Germ for a couple of weeks, and I've come to the conclusion that something must be wrong with it. I've tried it on acoustic guitar and it sounds great, tried it on electric, same thing. Tried it on vocals, sounds great. Since most preamps usually sound super on some things and not so super on others, I have to assume something must be wrong with mine since it sounds great on everything. However, I've decided not to have you repair it, because I like having one pre that sounds so good on so many different sources...keep up the great work!"
