Both have gotten great reviews. I suspect the Aguilar is more suited for Bass than the Demeter or am I wrong? I really want to get myself a compression pedal and was looking for any first hand knowledge from anyone who owns one (or have tried both)? I know a lot of it can be personal taste I'm just trying to gather as much information as I can prior to making a choice. I'll end up trying them both in music stores but how often does something sound great in a music store and you get it home or into your rehearsal space or on stage and it's not right? Help a brother out! thanks!
