    Does anyone have any experience with the AMT Electronics Bass Packer? It's an analog compressor with active tone control made in Russia. It also has a noise reduction circuit that cuts background noise from the pickups. I can't find any reviews anywhere on this particular unit, but their distortion boxes get rave reviews. Just wondering if anyone has anything to say about them. Here is a link from pedalgeek:

    I haven't heard of it...

    but it intrigues me...

    We must learn more of the bass packer...

    bassman314:

    pedalgeek has an audio sample from one of their distortion pedals on the main page (down in the lower right corner) and it sounds flat out sick. Obviously that doesn't mean much, but it is a good sign. I feel G.A.S. cramps coming on. I just might have to order one of these.

    I'll take a look at that...

    I am getting dissatisfied with my compressor, so if this is as good as they claim, it's well within what I am looking at spending on a new compressor eventually..

    i've been wondering about these AMT pedals for quite some time now, maybe gas will overpower a poor soul into buying one

    I was watching one on eBay and let it slip away because I forgot the auction was ending. There aren't many of these around right now. Now that pedalgeek.com is carrying them, maybe that will change soon.
