Maxon PUE-5B
V other opinions


Setup is simple, it's old school so no menu, only direct access, no need for manual ... Note that the output is stereo chorus because of the class!
In fact, it's like the pedals combined with a single power supply ...


I love but not low, it colors the sound too much, I prefer a Carl Martin Compressor and TimeFactor why.
In fact, I use it only with synths, and especially my SE 1 for vintage color!
The compressor is to be determined subtly, but at least it is versatile. The EQ is very good and effective, delay sounds good especially slapback, and the chorus is stereo rather versatile.
It only needs a distortion, a phaser and a reverb!


Many people looking for a sound effect to smear their VA or analog too clean, pue5b serves me that! Dirty might not be the word, rather coloring moreover, it is neither the distortion nor bitcrusher ...
Note that it is fairly flat, compact, to compare with Ibanez ue 400 and more!
I had it repaired several times for the switches and the output contacts were fake, but I attribute that to his age, no worries.
Should let me, I'd be bored ...

Multi-effects for bass guitars and synths in excellent ...

External-Loop (send a return to trigger one or more pedals simultanment)
-Graphic Equalizer
-Digital Delay

Everything is analog except the delay ...


The edition of the effects is very simple:

-Compressor: Attack Time, Sustain Level
-Graphic Equalizer: 7 Band + Level
-Digital Delay: Delay Time, Repeat, Mix + 3 position switch for delay time
-Flanger/Chorus: Rate, Depth, Feedback, D-time
Noise-Gate Threshold


The sound quality is excellent on everything I have tried ...
A remarkable versatility ...
The grain is trs hot, nothing to do with the "Made in Taiwan" by Ibanez.


I use it for 4 years, I've never had any problem ...
Thanks to him I always sound, and it is an integral part of my son ...

It is extremely rare ...

I do NEVER would sell.

Maxon PUE-5B
-An analog compressor with three knobs (attack time, level and sustain)
An external-loop that adds a different effect pedals.
A 7-band equalizer
A delay-numrique (the only thing that is not analog) with three knobs (d-time, and repaet-level) and three levels of dlais (16-64 msec 0.64 to 256 msec, 256 - 1024 msec.
-A noise gate for Intgr rduire blast effects.
-A flanger / chorus with 4 knobs (d-time, feedback, speed, width)


Plutt easy to use. Mode "select" you can choose how and what effect PDAL PDAL activer.Grce the "pass" it disables all effects in pressure, although in practice concert when you want to disable all the effects of a stroke while continuing to play.
The equalizer has a knob for the level of equalization is interesting when one wants to change a little bit the sound.


The sound quality is multi-effects pedals excellente.cette possde not nearly that of the analog (except the time limit) and it feels strong in sound: its own warm and trs. ..
The flanger is incredible and the sound quality holds the road well even when you push all the knobs flanger bottom.
The compressor is quite violent, I deprecated to push it back unless we try to get something like brutal death metal ....
Even if the time limit is numrique, the sound of something "vritable" and one would really play as one of pont.effets echoes rest assured ...


I do not possde long time and I had sacrment hard to find given its raretpour proof do I have imported from Japan}. I do not my ENTSO choice and I use it every time I play groupe.Il allows me to change my boust and sound without the mess or dnaturer. (a bass player needs to know to keep a bass sound clean and sober a minimum. ..). effects such as compressor or the 7-band qualiseur me to get a sound that stands out more (it's interesting when you hear too much the battery or scrapes) without having something too violent and too fat ...
I use both in my metal band in my blues-rock group and I must admit that I have difficulty coming to repeated without him ....
