Universal Audio UAFX Max preamp and effects pedal with dual compressor

Stereo dual compressor pedal with three iconic studio guitar effects, UA 610 tube preamp and EQ, adjustable footswitches and sidechain bass filter via the UAFX Control app.

Your sound, perfect.

Built on UAFX's award-winning dual-engine processing and a burning desire for the ultimate audio experience, Max Preamp & Dual Compressor puts the colorful sound of three legendary limiters and the iconic tube preamp at your feet.

Experience iconic compression with the UA 1176

From the mind of UA founder Bill Putnam to your pedalboard, Max gives you the same FET compressor that's been used in legendary studio guitar tones for decades, whether you want to spice up your funk, add soulful sustain, or add subtle tone infusions.

Get warm tube compression with the Teletronix LA-2A. This legendary optical tube limiter provides softer, warmer dynamic control over the 1176. Plus, you can fine-tune compression with the pedal-exclusive Ratio for limiting beyond classic hardware and UAD plug-in versions.

Create funky, dirty sounds with the classic Dyna Comp*

Add a dirty squeeze of that (infamously) famous red box to your sounds for lo-fi compression and funky overdrive - perfect for grubby slide sounds.

Add the legendary UA 610 tube preamp to your setup Get the warm details and character of UA's iconic tube preamp and EQ, dialing in great sounds with the perfect amount of harmonics and grit.

A set of compressors for sounds beyond the norm With Max you can easily combine compressors in any combination for a dizzying array of sounds and textures, allowing you to push your tones forward no matter how much you push the limits.

Personalize your pedal with the mobile app

The UAFX Control app lets you adjust EQ settings, get series/parallel operation, and add a sidechain bass filter for fully customizable compression and preamp effects.

For your convenience, we are open 7 days, but please advise the collection date and time so that we can ensure that the goods are ready. Orders that are left for more than 1 week and are not picked up will be returned to the warehouse, unless otherwise agreed. A valid ID is required to pick up goods paid for online or over the phone.

What if I am not at home before the delivery time?
IF you are not at home, the driver will leave a card in your mailbox so that you can collect your package from your local warehouse/post office or arrange a re-delivery.
We have noticed that it is much faster and easier to send all items to a business address where someone will be present.

Can I ask the courier to leave the goods at my door?
While it is possible, we strongly recommend that you do not do this. All warranties and freight insurance are void. You do this at your own risk, if someone steals it, Musos Corner and the transport company are not responsible.
If you are unable to collect your package, it may be worth asking a friend or neighbor to collect it for you.

What if I notice that my goods have been damaged during transport?
Check all items before signing! It is very important. Don't sign for an item that appears to be damaged, signing means "Signed in Good Condition" and then slips from the courier's hands and voids the insurance. If this was not possible there is a 24 hour window to try and claim insurance, please contact us and the carrierimmediately. This only applies to orders that are insured and sent by courier.

Can the courier or delivery person call me for delivery?
Unfortunately, whenever we ask for it, we are so often refused. No courier or Australian Postal Service will call you prior to delivery, despite any bribes we may try to offer.
If you choose a courier, we will send you a tracking number that you can use to find out the estimated arrival time of your goods, or we will send it to the company's address.

Can I receive the goods on weekends or outside office hours?
Unfortunately this is not possible at the moment, but you can pick up your order from our store in Newcastle late Thursday evening or over the weekend. Please contact us to arrange the pick-up time.

Sending to a PO Box?
Under no circumstances can we send a guitar to a PO box. Australia Post does not accept packages over 105cm LCM, we cannot change their policy.

Do I need to configure my product?
All guitars are fully tuned and ready to play (after quick tuning). Banjos must be set up upon delivery as they cannot be set up unless purchased with a case. Some products, such as piano stands, require some basic assembly as they are packaged flat for shipping. Digital pianos and Clavinova instruments may require simple assembly.

Are all products brand new?
Yes! Everything we sell unless specifically stated is considered brand new with full warranty. Some items, especially guitars, have been taken out of the box for inspection, demonstration, or quality assurance. This does not in any way affect the Musos Corner warranty or Australian consumer law.
