    I have.
    You can (and should) dial out the bass in the WMB. It appears zvex didn't take this into account in the BOR. Also, the WMB has a wider sweet spot on the boost (it's not so touchy). I find it more amp-like too. More control. WMB can be great for JTM dirty clean as well. Both good, WMB better IMO.

    The WMB had a weird midrange to it, at least w/ my setup (a Bassman RI) that compressed alot like a Boss OD-3 (which I don't like), and this was regardless of where the "sag" knob was set.

    Good, it's not just me then. I haven't tried the WMB, but this is exactly how I've felt about the Blue Collar and Red Snapper and is why I sold them. Something about the mids I couldn't dial out.
