Hey guys, Just wanted to let you all know, if you don't already, that the people at Empress, especially Mike, have one impressive customer service mindset. I was impressed by the quality of both construction and sound of their Bass Compressor, but that level got met impressively by the customer service. In the 20+ years of experience I had, working with and often relying on customer service teams, I have literally never met this level of involvement and communication. Empress is a gem! @Mike_Empress, thanks for all your advice and help. Next on my list is the ParaEq MKII. K.S.
