  • I am a Bass player and use this pedal as my primary effect(I use other stuff:EHX Micro Pog,& Small Stone Phase with the Prunes and Custard). I use Fender Presision Bass's with the P&C through a 1972 Ampeg V4-b most of the time(The Prunes and Custard comes "alive" through a Tube amp!).The effect Chain I use is as Follows: Boss Tuner, Old Korg Compressor, Micro Pog, P&C, Small Stone, old MXR Pre Amp, into the Vintage Ampeg. I always have the Switches set on the: Bass Setting and the Lo Setting.Now for some sound setings: With the Mix off and the Drive between 3:00 to 5:00 you get great mild Over Drive too a gritty Distortion. With the Mix at 10:00 and the Drive at 1:00 You get a great Fuzzy Synth Tone, and With The Mix at 12:00 and the Drive at 3:00 you get a heavy Fuzzed out Synth with a mild Filter Sweep. This setting really cuts through the mix and in a Power Trio situation when you hit a single note progression ( Like the intro to Can't Get Enough of Your Love by Bad Co.) It sounds like a Guitar cord. This pedal can make it sound like there is a 2nd Guitarist in the band, but still keeps the Bass intact. Can't say enough good stuff about this pedal. I use it an all different types of bands and it fits in all of them, because there are so many sound choices. Rock music, (any thing between 1955-1980),is what I do, but this pedal could be used with almost any type of music.
  • Good Points: So many different sound possibilities,Well built
  • Bad Points: I only use it on Bass and I have absolutly no cons!(on Bass).....but I have messed with it on guitar and I don't think there are as many sound choices!This pedal lends it's self primarily to Bass.
