    Thinking about trading my Aguilar Tonehammer for the new Radial Bassbone OD...any thoughts?

    I'd also be interested in reviews of the new Bassbone OD. I have the old Tonebone in my rotation with a Porkloin for some mild distortion/clip. Wondering how this might compare.

    There was a video on YouTube that was shot at NAMM for some interview, sound quality of the pedal itself wasn't too bad. I remember it having a considerable amount of gain on tap, I wouldn't hesitate to refer to it as a fuzz pedal. They added a lot user-requested features/updates to the bassbone side it, too.

    I only saw the video from NAMM and, it looks like a pretty versatile. By the sound of the review I actually like the ToneHammer a bit better (got one on the way)... especially when size and price were entered in the equation. For that pricepoint I'd just hold out for a Meatsmoke.
  7. I've only seen the video but I've ordered one from L&M. As someone who doubles a lot I'm happy to have one pedal that I don't need a piezo pre to go with my Bassbone. The EQ is good for my Jazz bass but not the upright.

    I heard it at NAMM in January - I thought it sounded very good. The OD definitely sounded more like a buttery tube-amp OD than an all-out fuzz or distortion. I didn't get to play with it or adjust any knobs, so it could be capable of more than what I heard.
