    Sweet dude. That's a big board. How do you like the Iron Pig? I have a rat tail but am very curious about how the iron pig compares.

    How is that photo theremin? I've been considering picking one up since they aren't that expensive but honestly I've never seen one on someone's board before so I have no idea how it sounds on bass.

    +1 I'm interested in that one, too. I've been contemplating their newest one, too, the Step Child (well really all their stuff) but keen on this theremin.

    How do you like the Weeping Demon? I consider one but have no chance to test it locally

    I think Doom bassists have some of the most sophisticated pedal boards.

    I was expecting to see more fuzz/OD pedals.

    Board's currently dissected, but I've been running Sonuus Wahoo -> Team Awesome Fuzz Machine -> SFT -> Bass Big Muff -> Carbon Copy -> Small Stone for a long time.

    I recently went to see a "blackened doom" band called Rye Wolves, and I was excited to note that the bassist had a very expensive boutique pedal chain, as well as a stack of amps from brands that are guaranteed to give doom bassists wood. I was all set to take a pedalboard pic and see if the guy would geek out with me for a minute between sets. Then they played... and he sounded like absolute garbage. All squelching mud but without any punch or massiveness. I don't know if he was going for black "necro sound" and succeeding, or for mighty doom fuzz power and failing...

    As much as I love effects and fuzz bass, I spent the whole gig wishing he'd play clean!

    Probably a classic case of 'all the gear and no idea'!

    Not the best pic, but this was when I was tracking bass for our new record.

    Bass > Korg Pitch Black > Fuzzrocious Demon King > Ernie Ball MVP > Moog 104M delay > Dunwich mostly harmless bass preamp.


    The Dunwich is stereo one side based on a 70's ORMAT preamp bud modded for better bass response, the other side 70's Ampeg SVT
