    Comments about Samson MDR1688 16 Channel Mixer (with Effects):

    I use this mixer as a submixer/monitor for LIVE drumset gigs. I've owned it for over three years now - it's getting used 4/5 nights per week (all 1-nighters). I'd estimate that It's been used for close to 650 gigs so far with no problems. I keep it in encased in an Anvil ATA rack and have only repaired/resoldered the connection on the power adapter cord (damaged - my fault). I can believe how well it works and for how little I spent. It's EVEN cheaper now and I'm buying a second one for my home studio.

    Comments about Samson MDR1688 16 Channel Mixer (with Effects):

    It sounds great! It was fairly cheap for the quality of the mixer. It's durable, one of my metal drumshells for my snare fell off a shelf right onto the sliders. They barely even bent and I was able to bend them back to shape. Im a novice and the built-in effects were a bit difficult to figure out since I didn't get instuctions with my mixer. (I bought it new) But I figured it out eventually. I really do love this machine though :)
