    I just bought this thingy, except its not like all the ones i see online, the red and white 882is.

    Its black and blue, and has basically the same knobs and lights and stuff, but its a 882, not a 882i.

    Can anyone tell me what the differance is?

    Actually nothing but a facelift. And it still ruins your work!!!

    The 822i is a revised version of the 822. The 822 has been discontinued. I would send it back and get the new version.
  4. I wouldn't say it ruins your work. It does some cool things sometimes. I wouldn't put it on a 2-bus, but for a bass guitar effect or something it is kinda cool sometimes. I like to use them for live sound or in a bass amp rack. I wouldn't bother sending it back to get the new one either. They all are pretty much the same thing. They're cheap and can sometimes do some cool stuff. I regret selling mine sometimes, but then I usually just put new strings on the ole bass and it works better.

    "Ruins"? Don't you mean "enhances"? You must have mis-typed! :wink:

    Don't leave out the also discontinued BBE 822A which has become popular as the 822 model to own. I know it is sometimes a secret weapon of mine.

    Mine as well. For bass and percussion, that is.

    I've always liked using an old 882 through a guitar amp's effects loop. It's easy to go overboard though, which is bad and it sounds way too processed. Used sparingly it can add to a guitar sound like crazy.

    I don't use one any more mind you, since I got a killer new guitar amp (absolutely amazing) but I'm sort of curious now as to how it would sound....

    dun dun dunn

    I can see where it'd sound great on percussion. I need to try that.

    I like how it sounds on bass. It's a nice way to fatten it up
