Great smooth toneI use this on my guitar and my bass and it just really makes everything smooth and right. My guitar sounds clean and my lows sound smooth. On my bass it just makes the tone so clean and not harsh. Very good box worth every penny.

Exactly what I neededSuch an amazing pedal. It truly completes my tone and pedalboard. I have a rack version in my rolling rig for my P.A. and it helps all vocals cut through the mix. This pedal does exactly what I need for my guitar too. It brings everything to life. What I thought sounded good before is so weird to compare with now. It's like I'm playing through my dream amp and not direct. The clarity and punch make the heaviest, dirtiest tone shine and cut CLEANLY!!!!

The BBE Sonic StompI read a review last year that rated the best pedals that are "must have's". Sonic Maximizer was in the top 10.
I did not read any reviews that might sway my opinion of it. Because of its name I expected tone shaping and control over base and treble. I have found it far and above my "wildest dream".
To my ear and how it performs I find that it takes the best tone I can possibly achive in the amp and through the guitar, and makes sound transparent, like a sunny day verses fog. The BBE gives music a 5th dimension. I notice each string played and harmonics - be it any genre in mind and every technique I can mustar.
I highly recommend the Sonic Stomp as a certain pedal to own. It is ruggedly built, its blue LED is perfectly placed and it is a true bypass in off position.
I'm very pleased with it and is certainly worth the street cost at $59 in my neck of the woods.

A Must HaveIf you wanna' be heard. If you wanna' prove that "Everyone follows the Bass Player." This is the way.

Clean....The best discription for this pedal, " It's like removing a wet blank draped over your amp." I put the Sonic Stomp at the end of the effects chain so everything is cleaned up. You will not be disappointed.

Required equipmentI am extremely happy with this pedal. Prior to owning this pedal I had been chasing the perfect distortion sound for years and spent ridiculous amounts of money to do so. Everybody thought my tone was awesome already, but I couldn't shake the feeling that there was just a little something missing. I wanted that perfect tone and raw but controlled distortion that until now I've only found in the studio. This pedal kept the tone I've worked so hard to get, but gives it a studio quality sound and makes every aspect pop out. It also sounds great played clean with no need to adjust anything when switching channels or effects. I see no need to ever turn it off.
Worth every dollar and then some.

Excellent Tone Boost and Clean UpI run this pedal through the effects loop on my Carvin V3 and all i can say is wow! This little thing instantly tightens your tone up and adds plenty of detail to the highs and lows of your sound. If you are looking for an extra punch in your tone, or looking to get a tighter sound, this is for you!

AMAZINGThis pedal is an instant tone machine. The only way I can explain it is the difference of being punched in the face (using the pedal at the end of your effects chain) or being slapped by a 10-year old girl (not having this pedal).

Fat and ClearNice addition to the guitar signal. Fat, clear and punchy sound, not to be abused. Set it between 12 and 3 o'clock for extra effect. Recommended.

A CONTROLLED Tone controlI love this pedal, the claim is true, it makes your sound jump out of the mix better. Highlights the guitar at just the right frequencies so that it's more easily heard, without fighting the vocals. Brings the highs out without harshness, brings the lows out without muddiness. Better than a compresser, for my money.
