Guitarists and bassists demanded a foot pedal version of the legendary BBE Sonic Maximizer and the wait is finally over. Many musicians do not have a spot for the rack mount unit, but longed for the legendary clarity, definition, and punch that only a Sonic Maximizer can provide. BBE took heed and carefully designed the Sonic Stomp foot pedal which delivers the same sonic improvement as their popular BBE 482i Sonic Maximizer.
The BBE Sonic Stomp includes such features as hard-wired bypass, non-slip rubber bottom, easy-access 9v battery compartment and included external power supply. The Sonic Stomp Maximizer Pedal uses hard-wired bypass which keeps your guitars impedance intact without any loss of volume and signal tone.
Derived from the legendary BBE Sonic Maximizer rack unit the Sonic Stomp pedal uses the same aural processing to counteract the natural phase delay between bass and treble frequencies. This delay is the culprit of many muddy and dead audio signals. Turn the BBE Sonic Stomp's Lo Contour knob and dial in the frequency that needs clarity and dial up the Process knob to bring up the attack (and the articulation) of your guitar's tone. Ever wondered why everything sounds better live? with BBE's Sonic Stomp Sonic Maximizer you're now ready to get that cleaner, meaner, and better sound. Many musician's don't have room for a rack unit providing such a feature, the BBE Sonic Stomp keeps it conveniently right at your feet.

BBE Sonic Stomp Tech Focus
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.
