  1. I’m curious about this pedal. Does anyone have any experience with this pedal? Can’t find any comments or videos on it.

  2. I own one! I got it a few months ago when it first came out. I’m guessing that there aren’t too many videos floating around out there because it’s main use is as a preamp/DI and headphone amp and those features are hard to convey in a video.

    Anyway, I love my Enabler. I use the preamp as an always-on preamp, which really sweetens up the tone of my (passive) bass and gives me more control over the EQ. The headphone amp is the real killer on this thing. I’ve never heard a headphone amp sound so clear and defined on bass. I’m using it with a mediocre pair of Bose Quiet Comfort 2 headphones, but I plan on getting some better headphones sometime soon, so that should make a difference for the better.

    • After giving up on finding a better price, my curiosity got the best of me and I purchased this pedal. I AGREE, the tone this pedal offers is very very good through a cabinet or headphones. And it is quiet. I plan to keep it and use it regularly but because of the cost I’m not real sure I would recommend it. There may be something else out there which is equally good at a better price. Perhaps in time my appreciation for the Enabler will grow.
