I run straight through a JCM900...love the tone but i needed something to clarify things, a little boost that wouldn't change my tone. A friend suggested i try the BBE sonic maximizer, i did and was blown away. I immediately went to GC and picked one up and haven't put it down since. You can read the manual to find out exactly why it does what it does, but i'll just tell you that it clears everything up, gives you a boost in all the right places, and tightens up your sound WAY more than any $100 piece of equipment should! The best part is, you can use this for anything...guitar, bass, live sound, recording, mixing....it just makes things better.

Small Box, Big difference. I use The BBE 362 Sonic Maximizer on my P.A.'s and my Monitors. I clears up everything. The bypass switch lets you compare your old clean sound with the new ENHANCED sound. I may have to pick up another one of these for my mobile rig. 2 separate inputs, and 2 separate outputs. 19" 1-U rack mount space, not very deep, easy to install and use. Less than a 1 min learning curve to operate.

What I was missing

By Tim B

from Jax, FL

Comments about BBE 362 Sonic Maximizer:

I never knew what I was missing until I added the 362 to my setup. It zapped the mud from my mixes with the simple adjustment of 2 little knobs. I know there's a lot more going on under the hood but, all I need to do is dial in those 2 knobs to get great sound.

Great for a bass rig!

By Fuzzball

from Ida, MI

Comments about BBE 362 Sonic Maximizer:

My bass player purchased this item for his home studio in order to generate better bass tracks. The unit worked perfectly by adding a tighter more pronounced bass tone. He liked the unit so much that he purchased one for his live rig and let me test it for my studio. After testing I had to agree it did a excellent job for the low price. I liked it so much that I had to order for my studio.

One of the best effects out there

By DJ Kevin

from WI

Comments about BBE 362 Sonic Maximizer:

This is an awsome piece of equipment. I through this on my DJ rig, which I also use for live concerts, and it made a world of difference. With recorded music, with this, it goes from sounding like a recording to sounding like it was being performed live right there. Worth every penny in my opinion.

Works Great

By Frank

from Camden, NJ

Comments about BBE 362 Sonic Maximizer:

I just recently added this to my rack. I run this through the effects loop on my Peavey Valveking head to a Mesa 4x12 slant. It really cleans up your sound in the lows and high. It really puts the finishing touch on the tone of your amp. Im not sure how the 482i sounds compared to the 362, but for the price its really a nice piece of equipment. I would highly recommend to anyone.

A Must Have

By Sound Master DJ's

from Knoxville, TN

Comments about BBE 362 Sonic Maximizer:

We are a mobile DJ service and also Provide light and sound for some small concert events. We did not know what to expect from this piece of equipment. We were AMAZED! As you have read in other reviews, this piece of equipment really brings out the lows and accents the highs. Our sound went from good to outstanding. The high and low adjustments allow you to fine tune the sound. We have had many complements! I would highly reccomend this buy, it is a steal for the money..

5 STAR, no question.

Comments about BBE 362 Sonic Maximizer:

This is easily one of the least expensive things that you can add that will totally change your sound. If you haven't heard one of these, you need to.

Comments about BBE 362 Sonic Maximizer:

The BBE 362 Sonic Maximizer is great! You can tell a great difference the second you turn it on! It makes your sound a whole lot fuller and just better all around! I run it into a Marshall MG100HDFX and it sounds AWESOME!

By Bard

from CA

Comments about BBE 362 Sonic Maximizer:

Let me start by saying that this is one of the best things I have ever purchased. Anyway, you can pretty much pull this thing out of the box plug it in and be good to go. There are only two knobs that you can tweak until something sounds good. Before I even touched them it had already improved my sound and after tweaking my amp sounded so much better. I don't know all the technical stuff to go with it, but the sound is certainly there. I would recommend this guy if my life was on the line...you really can't go wrong with it.

A "Must Have" for every band!

By CityMouse

from Northern NJ

Comments about BBE 362 Sonic Maximizer:

Our band just put this unit on our PA and wow! EVERYTHING goes through our PA...2 guitars, keyboard, bass, drums and vocals and the BBE 362 just made it all cleaner, brighter, clearer. If you record your gigs and practices, do a before and after test with the BBE and you'll hear just what I'm talking about...bolt it right in to your rack!
