    Has anyone tried it?
    What would you compare it´s sound to?
    What are the pros and cons of going with a unit like this?

    I've got one I use as a channel strip for our singer. Experimented with the bass through it, and it's nothing special. I hate its compressor (fixed ratio, only three attack settings, the main control adjusts the threshold) and the EQ is not what you want for a bass.

    There's nothing wrong with the pre at the price but for bass only use there are hundreds of better choices for less money. Of course YMMV - if you can get one on a return basis then try it.
