Favorite Mixer


from Brea, CA

I have used this mixer for a while now and I have never had a problem with it. It puts out a great signal and a great sound. It is a very durable mixer and can take everything you put into it. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a quality and great sounding larger venue mixer.
