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!

Practical and sounds good with a Jazz Bass.
A kind of Swiss army knife good value for money.
The compressor is discreet but effective, the EQ quite elegant. The distortion sounds very good. The blend knob is really useful.
Food is provided, it's a plus. To see if we can feed it via the 48v of a console for use purely DI.

Small flats, the closing of the gate is a little radical, and, as usual with Electro Harmonix, the switches are very rigid and noisy.
