Anybody use one of these?
I fucking HATE Sonic Maximizers with a passion but this little box actually works quite nice as a boost in the effects loop. I set it so it's just barely on. It came with a cheap amp I picked up(https://www.metalguitarist.org/forum/guitar-gear-discussion/639-your-amps-post-em-7.html#post15745) so I figured I'd give it a try.

:lol: It's pretty rad. Being that it's footswitchable makes it pretty awesome.

It's not really any different than the 362, as far as I know. And yeah, if you set any Sonic Maximizer to a reasonably low setting in a loop, they do a good job of boosting, and it sounds cool.

Of all the BBE's, I found the pedal didn't have near the effect of the rackmounted models.

That's what I like about it. The rackmount was a bit to overwhelming for me. Plus, it's footswitchable.

Yeah, you just have to keep the settings on the rackmount versions @ 12 o'clock or lower. That's what I do. I keep it in the FX loop of my GSP1101 so I can switch it in & out as needed.

I use mine in in the loop of my T2 and it gives it that extra little push to go from good to really good.:yesway:

Mind you I've had it long before now but why let a great pedal go to waste..

"Barely on" is how you're supposed to have it set. It's really easy to make them sound like crap, but that usually happens when the knobs get cranked too high. The knobs should be just high enough to add a little clarity and bottom. I usually have them between 9:00 and 11:00.

I run my rack sonic max at about 11'oclock and I keep it in the effects loop of my pod. Best way to control it.

Yeah, the stomp does seem to need a bit more then the rack mount so I run it at about 12'oclock. It gives just enough for a "boost".
