RE: forgot about that one......

The standard Budgie is an all tube circuit, but it is also available as a hybrid using SK170 JFETs. The standard has 6K-ohm output impedance. The hybrid is only 600-ohm output impedance. The hybrid is a better match for SS preamps due to the lower impedance.
The hybrid is not listed on the Parks website, but if you contact Shannon I'm sure he could supply one for you.
I have the hybrid version and feel no need to "upgrade".
Both are highly recommended.

P.S.- It is also a small unit (7"x5") so that is a plus for you.
