Picked up a BMAX-T from BNW and have it paired with a new QSC PLX 3002 bridged into 2 Aggie 112's. The BMAX-T's overall aesthetics are top-notch. Good action on the red abalone knobs. Tone-wise, BBE did their homework and produced a beautiful sounding pre amp. Most noticeable is the huge variety of tones offered. Unlike some pre-amps I've tried where lots of knob tweeking offers little change in tone, the BBE's controls are tremendously sensitive and influential (for lack of a better descriptor) on the quality of the tone. The quickness of the BBE's attack is extremely impressive (I'm sure the PLX contributes to this quite a bit as well). At our gig last Saturday, our drummer immediately noticed the upgraded tone, and the house sound guy made a point to compliment me on a great sounding pre-amp (he also liked the Elrick ) So there you have it. I tormented for months reading all of the reviews and comments on all the various pre's, and listening to the sound clips from Basstasters. So far, it seems like I made a great choice going with the BMAX-T.
