Just a heads up. Those types of things are often fun for about 10 minutes and then you realize there aren't too many practical uses for them.

 

This is my experience too.

+ another one. I had a bass overdrive, and like they said, it was cool for a very short amount of time. Then I couldn't keep from comparing the sound of it to flatulence. Who wants to sound like a fart? Who wants a bass player who sounds like a fart?

Always remember that you are unique. Just like everyone else.

Maybe Dusty Hill of ZZ Top who often describes his tone to that of a rhino farting into a garbage can.

As for me, it's a neat pedal but I currently have no use for one at the moment.

Lydian mode? The only mode I know has the words "pie ala" in front of it.

I have been trying to justify effects for years and can't. They sound cool/good/interesting at home, but as soon as I get live, they just never seem to work out.

 

For me and my gigs, it seems to work best to just go bass to amp.

I think a lot of bassists prefer a very clean, high-fidelity sound, and a lot of those same bassists also like super-duper high-efficiency light-weight cabinets and extended-range basses with active pick-ups and lots of knobs and switches. I'm kind of guessing that this sort of pedal isn't going to hold a lot of appeal for those folks.

 

But for those who dig old-school, dirty-sounding tube amps, passive pick-ups and bands named after dairy byproducts or ones with the words "Cheer" or "Railroad" in their names, I could see this pedal as a viable, useful tool.

 

Different strokes for different folks. I think it sounds cool.

OT, new band name: "Railroad Cheer."

Next time your in Baltimore, Jeremy, you can try my Homebrew Hematoma. I'll have to see if I still have the cheesy recording I made with it that I added to The Shirt's entourage and send you a copy. It was worth the money, to me.
