Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (15 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Definately the most bang for your buck!!!"
Sound: The sound is ridiculous!!! Before buying the 802-VLZ3 I was only using a M-Audio 610 interface for my mics and line-ins. Don't get me wrong, the M-Audio pre's are nice and have great sound, but the pre's on the Mackie 802-VLZ3 are HUGE!!! Big sound, lots of headroom, and so sensitive when it comes to mics. I was doing a mic check the other day and faintly heard a train wistle 2 miles away(impressive)! Feature: This compact mixer has everthing the big boys have. Its has too many features and ways to route the sound than I have time to write this review. Ease of Use: If you have used sound mixers before, you wont have any trouble. If your like me and have piddled with mixers- you'll have to navigate a little and then it becomes old hat. Quality: It would take a Tamahawk missle to penetrate the solid construction of this mixer. Value: Great value! Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to use support but, have heard from friends in the industry that it isn't Mackie's strong point. The Wow Factor: For a mixer, it has a look and feel that showboats over others. Overall: I'm sure I'll have this little gem till the day I open a professional studio and will have to upgrade to a much bigger console. Untill then, its hear to stay!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "An Excellent, Reliable, and Great Sounding Mixer!"
Sound: This is a very clean sounding mixer with minimal hum. I use it in live sound and it sounds better than our main mixer! Feature: This is quite a feature-packed console! It's very flexible in many conditions such as sending multiple channels other than the two main outs. Ease of Use: Everything is simple and straight forward. The manual is a bit confusing, but the actual product is simple and great! Quality: Mackie really shines with quality here. Immediately after taking it out of the box, I notice how SOLID the mixer felt. The awesome sound quality and durability helped reinforce my respect for Mackie. This mixer has been through a lot in this past year and it has held up flawlessly. Value: With the quality and flexibility in mind, this is an excellent value! Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to use support, but my friend says they are helpful. The Wow Factor: All metal design with VLZ preamps...WHY NOT?! Overall: Overall, this mixer will do best in any situation where a small mixing console is needed. Whether it be recording or being thrown into a bin for live sound, this Mackie will do the trick!!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
