Disappointed
DavidRF, 24.04.2019
I bought the pedal a few weeks it came out and I paid the full price of 239€. After about a year I should say I'm pretty disappointed. On paper the features are great and the SpectraDrive could be an awesome "all-in-one" pedal for the basic needs of any bassist. In reality, it sound pretty "digital". The compressor is ok, the drives are pretty bad. And I tried many many presets with TonePrint. In the end, for the current price of 155€ it could be a decent all-in-one pedal for beginners, but I think there are better choices out there. For the price I've paid, its a big, BIG disappointment, and I currently have it on sale.

Compact wonderbox
Nikokaoja, 29.12.2018
This is a very flexible comp (not editable thought) + dirt box + nice shaping options included. You really cannot beat this price/performance for all the goodies that come in this stomp box. Excellent little bass helper!
