Sonic Stomp Mini

Jonny M , 10.10.2017
I have two Sonic Stomps - the Mini and its larger brother. The Mini is convenient because it is small, but it does require the extra bulk of an external power supply, whereas the larger version can be used with an internal 9v battery. Both perform equally well.
I use them to enhance the sound of an acoustic guitar either through Bose or Fishman line arrays. The result is a clarity and purity of sound which is difficult to describe - much like the gratification of fitting new strings to replace an aging set. . The difference is more crystalline and focused. By accident I added the Sonic Stomp to the vocal line and discovered that this works like magic to clean up and define the voices. Once the settings are optimised they rarely need any adjustment - perhaps a slight roll off of the base or treble frequencies as the volume rises. It is one of those devises that one doesn't realise how good it is, until it is turned off! I wouldn't be without it, both for rehearsing and live performance.
I highly recommend this to anyone in the quest for purity of amplified sound. There are no cons - it is a sturdy well built product that does exactly what it is designed to do.

BBE Sonic Stomp Mini

Robert814, 20.06.2018
The original Sonic Stomp appears to have now been discontinued. The main (slight) downside was an incredibly over bright blue LED which could be distracting when looking at the pedalboard to check the status of other pedals. The mini version has a more standard red LED (which matches the red colour of the box) and is not distracting.
Take a look at the official BBE website and the demo's of the Sonic Stomp! It's a phase correction device (ok, I'm a techie, so just watch the demo's). Putting it another way - how come some guitarists achieve so much better sound than others with exactly the same guitar, pickups and amp? If you set this thing up and start using it, perhaps it doesn't appear to be doing much, that's because you soon get used to the improvement and think it's the normal sound, but as another reviewer has said about the 882i,"Try switching it off for your final number of the gig and see how the audience respond!" Take a look at just how many of these things have been sold! Why shouldn't guitarists and bass players have crisper and more defined sound live? I've been looking at "Psychoacoustic effects" for several years and noticed the rack mount version of this (BBE 382i). I'd only really been thinking of the main stereo mix for live performance, so kind of forgot about this and dismissed it as a mono device. If you're a guitarist or bass player it's the difference between the sound of a professional and that of a raw beginner.
The only downside to the new Mini version is the jack sockets - they are the plastic type with metal tube inserts where the plugs slide in and out. I've never known this type to last 2 years without the inserts falling out! I suspect the reason for the change is that these can be assembled by robotic production methods, rather than a human assembler (Cost saving!). Considering that the Sonic Stomp (Mini) is most likely to be the last pedal on the board (unless you have an amp switcher following) this will get plugged and unplugged at every gig or practice. The metal insert will soon fall out! Functionally this works just as well as the original - in this setup with my bass pedalboard - EXCELLENT improvement!
