BYOC are doing bass pedals now..
Has anyone seen that BYOC have started doing bass pedals now? I got myself their tubescreamer clone a few months ago (and havent built it yet) but now wished I'd waited and got the bass overdrive.... its got a blend and a 2 band EQ which would have been much more useful.
This is supposed to be my first build does anyone know if it sounds good on the bass? its called the 855 i think. or if not is there an incredibly easy and well documented mod for it?

Tubescreamers seem to be a love/hate thing for bass. Some say they work well and others disagree. With a blend they can work very well. On BYOC's site is does say that the 855 has more low end than a typical TS pedal, so you may just want to build it as is and see how you like it.
As for bass mods, check the BYOC forum. They are pretty good about having a lot of well documented info with pictures.

I built one of those and it was horrible, so IMO, you're not missing out on anything. the blend control didn't work well at all. I also tried modding it but I still couldn't get a good sound out of it. IMO, the circuit is a very poor design.

thanks bassgod0dmw I'll have a litte search on the BYOC forum. or I may just build it 'as is' as its my first attempt and if its no good for me i'll swap it with my guitarist or something....or cherish it forever like a proud and clingy parent
Johnk is that the bass overdrive with the poor circuit design? (rather than the 855) if so thats a bit of a relief.

it's the bass overdrive, not the 855. I haven't built the 855.

Have any of you guys tried their Octave Divider? I guess it's a clone of the old Mutron unit and from what I've heard on RUKind it's spot on. It's been tempting me for a while.
