I bought 2 in the 90's. One for me. One for my father who plays.I bought a new one because the Front of House mixers are much cleaner now.How ever the other still work fine. Just a little noise.

    Durable, Excellent Craftsmanship, Great Sound

I've tried other brands of mixers. They sounded weak and hard compared to this mixer. This mixer's bass is very powerful, full and deep. Mids sound real and lifelike and highs are extended and detailed without being harsh. The feel of the controls is of very high quality.

Durable casing and easy to set-up and use . Gave it a good run on an event and worked like charm. It does meet my expectation . Helped me with my dj Set-up to add multiple microphones.

I really do like this compact mixer for what it does. It's small, portable and does everything a small professional mixer should do. The only negative is that I wish the mute buttons had lights so it would be easier to see if a channel was muted or not.

No noise, great control very satisfied with this one

Mackie is top notch in my eyes. From the time you take it out of the box it's ready to go. So easy to maneuver around the board. Never let's you down, so many great options. Resumes are a breeze.

i have used Mackie mixers in my studio and on location for music gigs and three they get the job done with superb quality. Mackie has the best pre-amps for my mics. I like the fact that the 1202 VLZ4 has two aux sends and more important to me two aux returns.

We needed a small rack mount mixer for a production. The 1202VLZ4 did the job. We needed it to fit into a console 19 inh wide and 12 inch tall opening and it did. The only thing negative to say is that during use, sliders would have been more convient than the knobs.

The Mac stereo mixer has enhanced the power of my sound system. It was a great buy and well worth the price I paid for it.

all the small mackie mixers are excellent and durable and perfectly priced i have used higher-end consoles with cleaner channels but for the most part soud quality is same
