So in my quest to find a tubey OD pedal, ive done countless searches on this pedal and find it reviews quite nicely! Everyone seems to be pretty happy with it Although I just couldnt find enough info on how it work for my application so i thought id seek help from those who have owned it.
For the 'rockier' half of our set, both me and our tour manager felt that the bass could have just a bit of grit and dirt to just 'pop' on top of the guitars that little bit. Im not looking for a grungy, dirty overdrive, just a warm tubey 'nudge'.
One thing im worried about is this pedal sucking mids out of my tone (although it does have a mid control at 500hz i guess). We tried the sansamp BDDI and it just didnt work whatsoever - When turned on, it just took out all that middle fundamental frequencies and just added rumble and high end sizzle which was undesirable. Will the bass VT have a little more mids in this sense? Even without dialling any in on the knob? Im guessing because it has defeatable cab sim, i should be able to turn off this scoop sound but just thought id double check.
Also, is it a good pedal just for a 'always on' natural tubey tone? I dont want it be overly dirty, just a bit hairier i guess. And i found the BDDI very lifeless and unnatural in my band setting so im hoping it has a little more 'character' (exucse the pun!
Thanks in advanced!
