Thanks! I've gotten good results on guitar with the SVT, as well. A little crunchier and more modern sounding. I actually prefer the B-15 and SVT over the Fender 55 now. The new Engl Savage is great, too, even clean and at low gain.

Your logic is sound and I actually own 6 original LO1166 transformers so I know what you're talking about. Still, as good as the Unison technology is, I think the clearest indication that they're not truly accurate models is the fact that they all sound fairly similar to each other and even to the stock preamps. UA is getting better at it with each release and the SSL is the Unison preamp I usually recommend these days.
