I am wondering if anyone here has actually used one, the proce doesn't seem too bad. I was looking at getting a pair of ELi Distressors, but if I went this route I could afford there vmp-2000e as well. For what it's worth, I don't do much acoustic/live recording. I deal mostly with HipHop/Electronic music. That means lots of sampling, looping, vinyl, drum machines, etc... Some vocals too. Just curious if Sebatrons machines might fit the bill... I like coloration & like to hear the box, so if these units can sound heavy, I might go for it. Thanks for your comments.
