Hi, I recently purchased this pedal thinking it would allow me to get a vintage/creamy overdriven sound with a little dirt, like a mild distortion. I made my decision based on several online demos where the pedal sounds really nice with bass (all passive basses). I do not get any dirt out of the pedal, it is just working as a very loud boost with a nice EQ but no distortion whatsoever. I am no expert in effects, but could it be this pedal does not play nice with my setup? I run my bass (active, nordstrand PUPs) through a phil jones bass briefcase...Is perhaps a fuzz a better solution for what I seek? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
