Sonic Stomp...

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by BrainOfJA, Jul 1, 2016.

  1. Hey all,

    When I used to gig regularly, I had one of the old rack mount Sonic Maximizers in my amp rack. LOVED IT! Well, as time went on, I ended up selling it, and when the old band got back together, they couldn't believe it.

    I've got an opportunity to pick up a Sonic Stomp from a pal, but since I got the Ampeg SCR last year, I REALLY like the sound that I get. My question is, would adding the Sonic Stomp pedal really do any good adding it into the chain, and if so, where should I drop it in the chain? At the end after the SCR or before it or even in the effects loop on the amp? Or should I just save my $50 and not bother getting it at all?

    The sonic maximizer has a cult following. In essence, it is just a mid scooping device.

    If you like it, great. I would pass.

    The rack mount Sonic Maximizer is more than just an EQ. It is basically an x-over that has an expander function on the high-band side.

    The Sonic Stomp schematics that I have seen, show this pedal as just an x-over with level controls for the high and low bands. So, it is quite different from its rack mount brothers. Save your cash.
