Closest StoreCourtenay, British Columbia
This is an awesome little product especially for the cost. It is replacing my TC Level Pilot as I needed to use it elsewhere. The moment I plugged this in I was impressed and, for less $ it offers way more features than the Level Pilot. I am a big fan of the Mackie Big Knob products and they were very smart to make this scaled down model for those that don't need all the bells and whistles. It's getting a 5/5 all around from me.
