I just bought a PSA-1, actually a couple of them. I don't know how I ended
up with two, but I need to sell one! If you are interested, $350+ shipping.
Manual included.

The thing I noticed about the PSA1 is whoever created the factory settings
was definately in hairband mode. I find most of them way too "heavy", but 
a thin and buzzy way.

I'm finding if you tweak the knobs you can dial in all kinds of cool, 
and greasy tones. Lot's of tonal control for sure.

I wonder how may of the bad reviews are based on the factory presets.
