I have a pair of MA5s. Plenty of gain and has a nice bottom end. Has a nice thick sound yet clear not muddy. Very solid build. 28k button is nice in many situations. Like softshoe stated it adds that air. Sometimes it's a subtle thing, sometimes it's that one extra touch on the top end that makes a significant difference, sometimes it's too much or just not needed. Great option to have on a pre.
So far I've really liked it on kick, snare, electric guitars and mic'd Ampeg bass cab using an RE20. The other day I tried it on a vocal but in this particular instance I preferred the slightly smoother sound of the SH Gama.
API 512s and Avedis MA5s...they rock.
