Please NOTE: The sonic maximizer on this one is flakey. If engaged, it will occaisionaly cut out which kills the sound going to your amp. I basically consider this to be a BMax without a sonic maximizer. Not an issue for me as I'm not into the whole SM thing anyway... If it's an issue for you - then this is not the BMax for you. Got it... can't be much more blunt than that... Other than that it works fine. Sounds great. Sweet compressor. $140 shipped conus, paypal OK. Pic's later if necessary will trade for ... Lexicon MX-200, a decent stereo rack compressor, ART Tube Channel, a 2 space SKB or Gator deep rack, a pair of sm 57 or 58, some Protools plug in's for PTLE 7.3 RTAS) with license xfer... not big into stomps but a decent analog delay for my guitar rig might be nice ... chase up or down depending on what we're doing to be fair.
