It depends on the situation...

Solo Live Gig - Play Acoustic with it's enhanced vocals, harmonies, tuner, boost, switchable guitar effects and looper.

The PA is Hard to beat.... Without going to multiple pedals. Bose T1 is not something that is switchable on the fly. No foot switch and no vocal harmony. No looper etc.

Oh yeah, I remember buying this!

Plugged in my Gibson J35 with Baggs M80 ...
Direct Into the (EQ-less) Bose L1C.

Cranked the Blend knob and tweaked the EQ...
Dang, really not too shabby...

Anyone else ?

Hi Jake

I bought one several years back to see what it was like quality-wise, and how easy it would be to use.

I was pleasantly surprised! It improves a K&K Pure Mini in an amp or PA system nicely, and the only downside (if there is one) is it's made of plastic. But it's rugged, and I've never felt the need to pamper it. It improves the sound of undersaddle piezo pickups very nicely as well.

If I'm going to a gig where there may be a player without a preamp who has an internal pickup, I bring it along as my loaner, and have loaned it out several times to players who have a K&K and have not yet invested in a preamp. The sweepable mid-range frequency control is priceless with acoustic guitars.

It's always worked well, and it's still working just fine after 4 years. I just roll the blend all the way in. It's a great DI box as well when you need to interface with an amp or PA (or both at the same time).

For the price it's great. But I found that I need to roll off the bass all the way down with my K&K pickup, while the Red-Eye doesn't sound bassy even with any further EQ.

Hi M
That's because the Red Eye is pre-EQed, and you can't adjust the bass up or down (nor the midrange).
