Overdrive with separate boost

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by henryjurstin13, Feb 7, 2013.


  1. I've got a Fulltone Bass-Drive Mosfet that I like, but I'm curious if there is anything else out there like it? Drive & Boost in one?

    There are tons. More than a dozen. What specifically do want different from what you've got?
     
  3. Lil less wet blanket...

    Also, the boost of gain is ok, but I wish I had more control of it.. Maybe gain & volume of the boost?

    If you don't mind, will you list the ones that are similar? Thanks...

    the greedtone overdrive has a gain boost, as does the wampler triple wreck, but there are ALOT more of them that do.

    Not going to list them all, but when you said "less wet blanket" I immediately thought "Rusty Box".
     
  7. Triple Wreck looks awesome, but I would only need 1/4 of the gain on that guy... I wonder how it does dialed in for a lil lower for OVERDRIVE?

    Okko Basstard looks like a hot ticket too...

    here's a clip of mine with various settings. the first part when it's engaged is about as clean as it gets:

    If he's unsatisfied with the Bass Drive, the Hematoma is very, very similar, so that's probably not much help.

  13. Rodenburg looks pricey....???
     
  14. Barber makes several 2-channel overdrive pedals (they only briefly made the Deep Fryer, a bass version of their Burn Unit pedal). Of the lot, the 1/2 Gainer has potential as a boost/overdrive combo. It's a 2-channel version of their LTD overdrive, which was pretty popular here for some time.
     
  15. I have the Fulltone, the boost *has* its own volume knob... As far as the "wet blanket" effect, I can't answer that, I think I know what you mean. If it had a clean volume knob as well I'd probably still be using mine.
     
  16. It's got a separate boost footswitch, too, so I'd say it's definitely worth at least checking out.
