It's a beta so I don't know if I hold "the jam" or the jam in development.
The overdrive goes from completely clean unity gain to grunting bearsex
The distortion when all the way up gets a little less girthsome but thank GainOverdriveDistortion
The overdrive brings the girth back into the mix
The middle knob is just a high cut.
Gain is actually just a volume (They needed a g-word to fit the theme.)
It does not,
does not lose low end
Even with a high gain bass you have a lot of headroom and can get WAY louder if you want to slam the front of something.
The reason I am selling this that while it is a tank as far as volume and bass response it seem to ......lack a complexity in its ...harmonic content. I'm not just reaching for buzzwords
It's just the difference between the distortion you would have from a really good pedal into a bass amp that is made to have a lot of headroom it doesn't really gel like when you're slamming a pedal into a guitar amp and you have a pre-amp that's made to sing and scream. It is definitely good enough that I would open it up and try to tweak it a little bit because it is sooooooo almost there but everything in there is surface mount components and I don't solder with tweezers so hopefully the non beta standard version sounds as good as this or maybe it might sound little bit more (insert some wine tasting analogy here)
Okay so I got to this part of this comment and decided to call creation audio labs and ask them some questions the description of the pedal is that it is a full frequency response pedal so it doesn't add or subtract frequencies and wonk around w colors which is a purposeful thing I'm kinda into. I would hook up the holy fire with the rane EQ and I'm sure I'll be happy but I don't have that luxury I have to build pedals soooooooo. OK both the EQ and the holy fire for 175 shipped. At midnight tonight I'm going to try it and I might tell y'all to beat it.
