Phat Phuk Kind of Question...

    Recently picked up a Wren & Cuff Phat Phuk B. Cool pedal, but the lack of any EQ options leaves me wanting more. I knew going in that this was the case, but the only way to truly know if something works for you is to play it.

    So, I am looking for a pedal that works similarly to the PPB - boost with some OD flavoring in there - but also has either a Tone knob, or Treble/Bass knobs. Blend is not really a big deal. I'm looking for low gain here in the end.

    Any recommendations from my fellow TB'ers would be appreciated

    Thanks!

    look no further: Hardwire Tube Overdrive CM-2, seriously one of the best light "bass" overdrive pedals out there, and for cheap

    Otherwise if you want to keep your Phat I recommend you to put an Equalizer in front of it.

    Thanks. I'll have to check out the Hardwire, I always see great reviews, but have yet try their stuff out.

    I just got a Phat Phuk Bass, and really like it, but I understand your query.
    For a slightly more tweakable boost with a touch of gain, the Xotic Bass RC Booster is great.
    For light, touch sensitive OD, the Dredge-Tone Angler is wonderful.
    Hope that helps.

    Fulltone Bass Drive has a tone knob and an overdrive knob, and compcut setting (what I use it for) is a very nice low gain overdrive.

    Been very curious about the Angler, just can't find a demo on bass anywhere.

    "Compcut" is just a fancy name for its clean boost mode, isn't it? Which is a perfect way to drive your tube amp ;)

    It dirties up my solid state nicely too, so I would say no.;)
