Overall: As a bass player it is always very difficult to get the "TONE" out of a stomp box that make you feel like you cranking through high end bass cabs and amps. I use in ear monitors 95% of the time so having a large stage rig is pointless unless it is being mic'd, which is almost never. So why drag all that 200 lbs of bass gear around, because we are afraid of losing our bass tone. Not any longer, this pedal has brought life back into my In Ear's as if I were standing in front of my external bass rig (cabs and amps). I am always hesitate on pedal due to the "hype" of most of them and there stupid names, but this one is straigt forward and accurate to my bass itself. It has A/B channels but I use it more as a mute channel on the B by running into my tuner instead of the tuner out jack. This pedal has programmable features but I dial in the tone that best replicates my bass true sound, click, click, saved, then use my bass features for the tones changes. Seriously, if you need to go direct into the FOH, then this is the most covenient and hassle free way to go. Though my bass heads have great DI's but hey also have about 100 lbs along with it that nobody is going to hear anyway.I rate the quality a little low due to the battery compartment. It feels like I'm throwing the battery into an open hole. The battery is only a backup anyway cause this can run off Phantom Power as well. I haven't used Manf support so I rated it in the middle.

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.
