As Advertised!!! Works Great!!!

First off thanks Sweetwater!!! I'm used to getting next day shipments but I didn't think I'd get it on a Saturday!!! Pedal works great, no issues, and it works great for my setup!!! I was gonna get the Dyna Comp, but the switchable attack option sold me. I like it better than Boss's comp pedal!!!
4/5

Great pedal

You can get a lot of different sounds and shapes from this pedal without it changing the tone of your bass. It gives a very clear and crisp sound no matter what style you are playing..The only downside is the battery doesn't last very long, so I bought a power cord..

3/5

Not sure how I feel about this

This pedal is not bad, but it cuts a lot volume unless I dial up the volume switch, and the volume adds too much gain for practice purposes, it could be wonderful in a mix, but I don't play with a band, so I cant really review it like that. My friend who plays bass for a pop rock band says he wants to play with it in the studio though. basically, if you'r friend tells you "you need a compressor pedal" sit and try some at a shop before you order one, if someone you know has a compressor, see if you can use it in your signal chain for a few days. I prefer my 25 dollar limiter/enhancer pedal I ordered from sweetwater to this because it is a much more subtle effect. I have only used this and the 25 dollar compressor pedal, thats why I suggest trying many pedals before you buy.

Sweetwater Advice

Electro-Harmonix Bass Preacher

My dynamics were kept in check, my high end stayed intact, and I had just the right level of note peaks getting through. Easy to use and easy on the wallet, the Bass Preacher's sermon is worth checking out....
