"It goes everywhere with me"

This is a great DI box to use in place of an amp. If you need to go directly into house PA or mixing board but want to have a little control over the tone of your bass this works great. The compressor is very basic but does work. The distortion is good and can be controlled quite well. The signal is clean. Does not have an internal battery so I carry an adapter and external battery with adapter also. Does exactly what you want a DI to do.

"Love the sound, broke in six months, no response"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Excellent sound and flexibility, really love the ability to blend the overdiven and natural bass sounds. good, simple, compressor. XLR output crashed within 6 months. Emailed tech support. literally ZERO response. Very disappointed. We use several of their products but the utter lack of response means we'll be smarter next time.Still gets a 3 for value because it's still usable with the 1/4" but really would like *someone* to reply when I email for help. Cannot recommend, which is a shame because it's a great pedal.

"Nice pedal but..."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
It really is a nice pedal. I bought it for my Ergo upright. Gate is good as well as compressor. Both are simple to control. Sound quality is excellent. It has distortion but I’m not into that much. My only problem is it’s not equipped for phantom power or a battery which means I need the wallwart. I needed a single pedal for my EUB and this does that fine
