Overall Rating:
Inexpensive, simple to use, great sounding box. Great for subtle, transparent compression at clean settings
Price: $35.00 (new)
Where Obtained: M.E.E. Music-Phoenix
Features:
It's a stompbox, not a rackmount. But then again, the attack and threshhold knobs were very nice for sculpting tone.
Sound Quality:
I've since switched to a Korg AX1000G to simplify my live rig and due to the fact we often play in dusty conditions, but I LOVED and miss the way this box was/is able to dail in just a HINT of effect, just enough to level out your sound a bit without coloring it. Many other stombox compressors add way too much effect/coloration, even at the lowest settings. All the knobs are fairly sensitive and can be used to effect, or increase transparency of tone during compression.
Ease of Use:
Brain-Dead simple. The enclosed guide is fairly helpful at suggesting ideas if you get stumped.
Durability:
No trouble with this box, although I've had trouble with other DOD boxes of similar construction(Flanger).
