"Just What I Needed"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've tried several other bass boost/distortion pedals, but they were always too "harsh" or "metal sounding." They were good for that sound (grind, dirt), but it was too much for me. After reading the review on this pedal, I decided to try it. After three days, I'm thrilled! The clean boost is just that, the distortion goes from very smooth to the raunch some people like (but I don't). This pedal is perfect for setting up a boost/smooth distortion that is perfect for soloing with just that little extra edge on it. The tone control set on higher treble can also boost the upper-register tones on leads. It works, with some tweaks, on everything from my '70 P-bass to my Carvin Icon 5 fretless to my Ibanez 3006 6-string. I recommend this pedal very highly. If you want warm, tasteful distortion for your bass, this is the way to go. I'm a 30+ year Boss user, but this eats the Boss Bass Distortion alive for smoothness and taste.
Musical Background:

Great product and easy to use. I love the tone, it's not an over the top fuzz, it truly just brings out the warm tone of my bass. It's great if that's what you're looking for.

"Great pedal to add some hair to your bass tone."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I found this pedal to be very interesting as it does not distort your sound like other distortion pedals. Its very transparent and sometimes you dont even know its on. I found myself addicted to the sound I get from this pedal and now its on fulltime. It gives you just enough effect to add hair to your bass sound.Although this pedal might not be for everyone, I highly recommend to at least spend a few minutes trying it out.
