I keep scanning my issues of BASS GEAR MAGAZINE , looking for your beautiful stomp box!..
had to revive this thread! playing w my FC OD last night and thought about this..
BGM doesn't mess around, they only review the best of the best..!
I've cancelled my Bass Player Magazine script after at least 10 years of buying it, their technical expertise are unlike any mag I've seen in Japan, Germany,anywhere.. i think your unique tube fx will stand up to their high standards!
you circuitry is clean and well designed, I think it'd be ideal for them..they always show FX guts in their reviews,
U might consider sending one of your unique phasers to them instead,
I haven't seen anything like your Gemini biphase or your zillion-stage phasers anywhere,
if you could adapt one for bass, it'd be filling a large gap in the market.
Imagine busting into JPJ's keyboard part in "No Quarter" during a bass solo? that biphase would KILL that tone!
I've been still exploring the small subtleties of my custom OD and I'd LOVE to see all the specs spelled out..
I think bass players have ignored the tube fx that are out there because of the power cords,price, or the size,whatever.& your unit is tiny and so..different. it stays on all the time, gives me sustain and makes me sound cranked up when I record.
( I always hate plugging into random studio's miked B15's turned too low and having to just deal with that tone. I prefer a cranking up a bit more.
My FC OD allows me to walk into any recording session, & feel confident that i will have a little sustain and a more 'live" feel..
I pretty much have decided sell off my whole board and keep my beat up Boss limiter, your OD,(the only two stomps that seem to leave my low end intact)oh, & my combination tuner-A/B box.
(BTW, that last photo of the light blue "retro" styles overdrive was one of the nicest designs I've seen)
you have a real knack for clean, efficient graphic design, I'd love to see more like those, very easy on the eyes!
happy new year and let's see a Frequency Central
review for 2013!
