Customer Reviews
3.5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. ""if you have the means...GET one' - Ferris Bueller"
Overall: This is all that and then some! I've used it on vocals, guitars bass, DRUMS and it is now my go-to pre. So many USEFUL features. I'm running 4 other pre's into the 4 1/4" ins and feeding the ADAT line to my interface for an all in one unit. The 4 inserts are sweet for adding noise gates to mics if needed or any other rack unit. The compressor is sweet...gets the job done without over doing it. The tube/Trans feature is SWEEEET! his unit made one helluva an impressive sonic change in my sound and recordings. And I DO love that UA sound! I see another in my future! Highly recommended....U DIG...!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "It could have been a nice addition to the studio if it wasn't for the terrible quality control of these units."
Sound: Sound was good. Very clean. Feature: The tube blend feature is nice. It added fullness, maybe a touch boomy on the 100-200Hz range. We tried it on acoustics and vocals. Many cool output and insert possibilities. Ease of Use: After a little tweaking you can get some decent tones. Quality: We tried three units!! From noisy inserts, to wacky input levels between channels and terrible gain stages like moving the knob a hair and the gain would jump up. Value: WIth these quality control issues for a 2000 dollar unit I can not recommend it. And I had high hopes for it because Universal Audio makes great products. Very disappointed. Manufacturer Support: I just returned it to Zzounds. I lost a month over these three attempts. Gotta give kudos to Zzounds with the Returns department. They were prompt and no hassle. The Wow Factor: See above. Overall: See above.
Style of Music: Rock, Metal, Fusion

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.
