General What is your overall opinion of this product? OK - got this from AMS about 6 months ago and have been using it as the pre-amp before my Carvin 500 bass head. All i can say is this is a really great pre-amp and it really livens up my bass rig sound. I use the pre-amp into the power amp input of my head. I have both the compressor on and the BBE sound processing on with them all set to around half way. This seems to give the best sound as too much compression makes the sound cut off too much and too much of the BBE process makes it too boomy. With it on though it makes my highs a bit crisper and my lows a bit more present. The mids control is only a cut so i set it to a higher level so it doesn't cut as much to get a bit more mid-range. OTher than that it's now a keeper in my everyday rig - don't know what I'd do without it. THis is an all around great sound sculpting tool.
