Wow, awesome tool box!
marius_b, 02.10.2017
After I put the order, I read some reviews about the products and started to be really disappointed by my purchase. But I wait until I got it into my hands. And, wow, I became so happy about it!

I am a bass player and I have gigs where the whole band uses in-ear amplification so no reason to carry a heavy amp. I thought this preamp would help me on shaping my passive basses and to have a easy way of amplifications.

The EQ section is exactly what I wanted. It has 4 knobs, and the mids section is really important to shape the sound! They are not extremely powerful so you can use them at max in case you need a certain tone without being afraid you will broke the mix.

Not a fan of bass distortion and no many ideas of a great distortion tone but I am sure the 4 knobs will help you get the shape you need.

The compression amazed me! It is just a single knob compression, which in general I don't like. I have the MXR 87 which is one of the best compression pedal so I have good taste about compression. That single button gets out such a natural and warm compression that I use inly that one even on live gigs. I use the compression around 10 o'clock only and it dos my job for me.

Extremely useful all the ins and outs of the pedal. I use the headphone output to play at home and I am such a happy bass player. I totally recommend it!
