Outstanding Board / Superb Service
Hello Folks. My name is Bill Lubekey, and I live in Beaufort, SC. I've been playing R&R music for over 50 years. I still play live music, as well as writing my own music and recording in my home studio. I travelled full time through the 1970's and 80's, and have been through the mill with equipment. I own several Yamaha, Behringer, Mackie, and Fostex mixers. I wanted a small mixer with decent effects, for ease of set up. I looked at all of them and ran the reviews. I could have spent easily half of what I paid for the Allen & Heath ZED-10FX, but I already either own those brands or have played through them. I ordered the ZED and got it at 4:30 in the afternoon of a gig I had to start setting up at 5:00. I took it out of the box for the first time at the gig, and HANDS DOWN, it is BY FAR it is the best sounding mixer I have EVER used. The effects are easy use and sound superb. If you don't buy it, you're missing out on the best you can sound. It delivers from 10Hz to 30k to start with, giving it crisp, robust sound, without that "phony" sounding low end you usually get. As far as SWEETWATER, they offer without a doubt the best, most professional retail service in the buisness. Buy cheaper if you want, then try to get a reply if there's a problem. Ha ! Good Luck ! The real deal-breaker? Well, other than it arriving 2 days ahead of schedule, is the follow-up. Without my contact, a real nice, savvy guy named Dan Overstreet called me, out of the blue, just to ask if I was satisfied with my purchase. Talk about service, WOW ! I am so impressed with this mixer and the follow-up, why would I ever use any company other than SWEETWATER? Pretty much a no-brainer ! Thanks Dan ! You are a great representative of the quality of service at SWEETWATER !
