      They work great in the loop of the JCM 900. Terrible in everything else that I've heard it in.

        I wouldn't even consider using my Dual Rectifier without it.

        I wouldn't consider using it with my Splawn.

        To each their own...you either like or you don't.

        Whatever works I say.

            When it's not ****************ing up your sound, it spends it's time sodomizing your mother.
            It's the worst effect ever.

                I'll say this, it really depends on the amp. On my Carvin X60B or Peavey Ultra, it really didn't do too much at all and really.

                On my Yamaha T100C tho, it really tightened it up. That's a somewhat treble heavy amp so it really helped bring the low end out and sound killer.

                Try it and see if you like it, if you don't then take it back. Simple as that.

                  Two points mentioned here ring 100% true, in my experience.

                  -Due to the nature of the effect, it works great for some amps, but not for other amps. So use your ears to decide. An EQ can do similar effects, but it's not quite the same. Again...use your ears to decide which tool will work best for your application.

                  -And secondly, the knobs definitely need to be used in moderation. Seriously, the Process knob should really never need to go past 9 or 10 o'clock. Keep it below that and it really keeps the shrillness away, but still adds a nice little bite. The Lo Contour, you can be a little more generous with as for most set ups, it's effect is more subtle. I've had it as high as 1 o'clock at times and it added some nice punch and thump. I find how much you need to apply here depends upon your cabinet.

                  Bear in mind, I've always used the older, blue 362 rack mount model. Maybe the newer ones are more a bit harsher? Dunno.

                  Currently though, I forgo it in my guitar rig. But I use it to spice up my bass rig a bit. Works great for tightening up fuzzed out industrial type bass tones in a way that most EQ's can't.

                    I have one on my pedalboard but to tell you the truth I only use it when I jam at low volumes by myself to thicken up the sound. Once I practice with other people or crank up the volume I don't use it at all. They do work well with solid state amps though IMO.

                      It totally depends on the amp. If you have an amp with excessive mids or a boxy tone, it's great. If your amp already sounds really good as is, it probably won't improve it much and possibly hurt the tone. Try and see how you like it.

                        I remember when these came out eveyone was talking about them and now I don't hear much.

                        Are they worth it? Do any of you still have this pedasl or rack unit in their rig? Is it worth it or is it just really an eq pedal?

                        Thanks,

                        Mike


                        I owned an 882i...took it back.

                        I was gifted a Sonic Stomp...never used it.

                        From what I remember, it's supposed to correct the timing of frequencies so that you hear the bass and treble at the same exact moment (instead of hearing treble first and the bloated bass rolling in after it).

                        I have used the 882i with marginal results. It didn't seem to make a "dry" amp sound much better, but if you get a chance to run your stereo through one, it makes a HUGE difference.

                                And that is part of the bull**************** with it. My horn drivers are about 8" farther back than my mids, my subs are about 3" farther back than my mids. It has no adjustment for that. My big pa has a 9' delay between subs and mids. It doesn't know. Aa good, well tuned pa is only harmed by a sonic maximizer.
