    As great as the Feedback Destroyer is for subwoofer EQ, nobody has any in stock currently and don't expect to have any for months! One dealer I spoke to said 4 months! I can't believe this unit sells for ~$150...there is really no other parametric EQ that comes close to the features offered at that price. I might opt for an Ashly PQX-571, its over $100 more, doesn't offer memory settings, and is mono, but will do the rest of the FBD offerings at lower noise floor.
    Anybody know where to get an FBD right now, in stock right now?!

    This is a fairly typical Behringer problem. They do production runs for a while, and then POOF. I think the same thing happened around this time last year. One week places were dumping them for $135, the next the few places that have on want $225, then no one has one.

    You might try a local store that sells electonic music equipment and stage sound systems. It's actually a device designed for the bands that travel around doing shows.
    They may charge more, but they may have them in stock. Just a guess.

    Just got mine at Guitar Center for $139. They matched Daves Music price.
    Now the real fun begins.

    Call Jim Oade (o-dee) at Oade Bros. He can get you one, but it will be $175 shipped.
