Modtone Bass XL Preamp and Compressor Effects Pedal

    I was wondering if anyone has used the modtone bass xl Preamp and Compressor Effects Pedal with their other pedals as a working compressor. I frequently need compression on my distortion pedal and would like to have the option of a DI in live gigs. My Ampeg does not have XLR direct out so it would be useful.
    I am mostly curious if this pedal would be good as dual purpose pedal and as a compression. There is very little out there about this pedal and I have been disappointed with Modtone in the past. I am willing to give it another chance.

    I've only found one YouTube demo of this pedal and it's pretty much a garbage demo.

    Has anybody been able to try one out?
    Does anybody have any experience with ModTone in general?
    Are they a cheapo pedal company or is their stuff well built?

    I'm in the market for a preamp with compression and I've been eyeing the TC Electronic SpectraDrive, the EHX Batallion and the LR Baggs Stadium Bass when I came across this pedal form ModTone so I'm trying to revive this old thread.

    Hmm o_O, guys is it just me or this looks just like a reskin of the recent Harley Benton DI ? Because if it is, this version is $75 ...

    I got a deal on one on reverb. Idk when it comes, but I'll do a worthy test for it when it comes
