Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Awesome acoustic preamp!"
Sound: I play Celtic style acoustic mandolin and need clean amplification to let the original sound of the instrument come through. This preamp produces a clean sound with minimal effect on the original acoustic instrument sound. The preamp is compatible with any style music. The equalizer settings allow you to tune it to a variety of venues. Feature: I really like the feedback filter, the boost button and the cool tuner. It could use an on/off switch to save battery life. Ease of Use: The interface is fairly intuitive. But if there are questions, the owners manual covers the details carefully. Quality: Well made. Seems rock solid so far. I am using in the studio and on the road. It packs up quickly it it's own custom case. Value: It seems a tad pricey, but I shopped around carefully and it is very competitive compared to similar models on the market. Manufacturer Support: No repairs needed so far. The Wow Factor: The design does have a professional appearance. Overall: I am hoping this product will last a few years. The only thing that might be handy is a built in AB input selector. I just added an external one for handling multiple instruments ...
Style of Music: Folk, Celtic, Contra Dance

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Nice tool. Swiss Army Knife of DI boxes. Helps make Taylors sound reasonable."
Sound: The Venue seems essentially transparent. Unless you modify the tone with the controls, it does a very good job of sending your guitar signal to the board. Feature: The tuner, while not the easiest to use, does function and is there when you need it.The built in effects OUT/IN loop has become surprisingly handy. I had no intention of using this feature, but my Boss CE20 Chorus pedal has become a reliable and useful addition to the stage setup. Thus with just two floor pedal devices I have the function of Tuner, Direct Box, EQ and Chorus. Pretty nice. The only thing missing is a source selector ability for when I have two guitars on stage at once (rare).The ability to mute (when in tuner mode) has become an essential attribute.My number 1 favorite feature is the fact the XLR signal does NOT have an output volume control. I do sound as well and use this box for the guitarists to ensure I get their signal the same way every time. This is similar to the idea that stage microphones should not have an on/off switch... ever.I've not needed the feedback notch yet so have no report.The EQ provides enough flexibility to modify sounds without going over the top. any more controls would be too many for frantic state adjustments. It has enough flexibility to make those tinny Taylors sounds a bit more like an acoustic. Ease of Use: This thing is pretty straight forward. If you need the effects loop, you need to understand voltage signal levels and such. The tuner is a bit quirky to use. Quality: The case seems quite robust. Time will tell if the foot switches and knob controls hold up. I would expect the knob controls to not take abuse well, but the design of the assembly recesses them a bit to help protect from wayward stomping... not foolproof, but much better than exposed knobs. Value: Some cringe at the price, but I say it is a good value for the tidying up it does on stage. If it lasts like it appears it might, costs becomes less an issue. Once this thing is in your gig bag and your past the "why oh why did I buy this" stomach ache, you'll likely forget its cost. Manufacturer Support: No support needed yet. No report. The Wow Factor: It just seems like this unit is designed by musicians for musicians. The look is cool. It sits unassumingly on stage. You can barely see it from the audience yet has a good user interface from above. Slick.It has enough Wow factor for my son who constantly borrows my Venue. Guess what he's getting for Christmas. Overall: I bought this last year from ZZ in the hopes of simplifying some stage setup and getting more control over the final sound of various instruments. So far so good.
Style of Music: Been there, done that. Focus now is praise and folk music.
