    This unit has no peer as far as price, that I know of. But, price means nothing if it doesn't do what you want. I have gigged with this unit, providing paraeq for a GK RB1001II with a Traynor 410NEO cab. The stage we were on was very boomy and the 4 band EQ on the GK head wasn't zeroing in on the offending frequency. This unit was able to do that so I could get the volume I needed to hear myself without booming everyone else into oblivion. Well done, Rolls!
