Upgrade everything with Sonic Stomp, the one piece of gear which improves the performance of your whole rig. Whether you're a guitarist or bassist, get ready to be amazed. With Sonic Stomp's proprietary BBE Sonic Maximizer technology, you'll hear your amp cut through the band mix better with dramatically improved note definition in chords and solos. Even with a wall of distortion, the distinct harmonic elements of each note can be heard like never before. Time-based effects take on a level of realism and dimension you never thought possible. And if low-end punch is your thing, you'll discover the Lo Contour control is the ticket to meaty chunk without the mud.

Rack mount BBE Sonic Maximizer processors have been the secret weapon of musicians for years, with each generation of the BBE technology offering more for musicians to discover in their tone. While rack-mount models such as the 482i Sonic Maximizer are a staple for many touring musicians with sophisticated rigs, a rack device isn't practical for many musicians. Enter Sonic Stomp, packing the same BBE technology into a pedal for musicians who prefer simple rigs. Its buffered input happily accepts either the input of your instrument or the output of another pedal (Sonic Stomp should be used last in the pedal chain), making Sonic Stomp as easy to use as any other pedal. Just plug it in, dial the knobs to your taste and enjoy.

Sonic Stomp's application of the BBE technology is just like its big brothers, using frequency-dependent time alignment with integrated amplitude compensation. What's all that about? Simply put, it helps a speaker more faithfully reproduce the signal so more of the nuance and detail is revealed. Sonic Stomp is not an effect but a tool to allow more of your tone to reach the ears of your audience - and yours.

Comments about BBE Sonic Stomp Sonic Maximizer Guitar Effects Pedal:

Wow!!!, what a great product I don't know why it took me so long to finally try this pedal after seeing so many good reviews everywhere about it., I was actually looking for a bass booster pedal and I tried many including EXH-the mole, BOSS odb-3 IBANEZ bb9, and more(EQ,COMPRESSORS, SIGNAL BOOSTERS etc. etc) so finally when to return the lates one I mention here and the sales guy asked me what exactly I was looking for and then he suggested to try the SS, I was skeptical at first but after a few minutes of playing with the knobs I was sold IT'S EXACTLY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR AND MORE. I can leave on all the time or I can turn it on whenever I need to beef up my lows and it doesn't kill my highs (like the EXH-the mole) my chorus/flanger/delay sound amazing with this pedal on and my distortion/overdrive pedals have an in your face sound now. IT REALLY DOES WONDERS FOR YOUR BASS SET UP buy it, ok try 1st and then buy it you won't be disappointed .

Below Average Quality

By Dwayne Hanson

Comments about BBE Sonic Stomp Sonic Maximizer Guitar Effects Pedal:

I have used the Sonic Maximizer process many times over the years and it is a unique and fantastic effect to use. My experience with this incarnation has been poor unfortunately. One of my local GC stores had this on sale for $79.99 over Presidents Day weekend. It was in the cabinet but I figured it was fine, it wasn't.. the LED was non functional. Of course there were none in stock when I went to exchange. So I took a store credit and purchased some other stuff. I wasn't happy about ordering another one online but it was more convenient than driving an hour one way to pick one up. The new one arrived today(had to pay $100 since online and in store are not connected for some unsatisfactory reason) Let me be clear, in both units the effect worked fine but the build quality was poor. The new one I received today has a low contour pot that doesn't turn smoothly. It's a great unit to have but buyer beware, poor build quality!

Comments about BBE Sonic Stomp Sonic Maximizer Guitar Effects Pedal:

My rig consists of a Blackstar HT50 head and a Line6 FlextoneIII 412 cabinet I also have a zoom G2 that I have been very happy with. But, when I added the Sonic Stomp I thought I had died and went to Heaven! This thing brings out tone nuances that are incredible! I use it live and have no problem hearing my rig onstage. I also use it for recording. Great job BBE!
