    I am 100% positive I am getting that bass synth and phaser pedal for x-mas. Going to figure out octave fuzz and ultimate drive. Maybe digital delay. I might need to make up a bigger board...

    I love this bass.

    My guitar player wants me to get another cab...so we can both run stereo rigs live. His text to me last night said something along the lines of, "Bass and guitar stereo rigs would be epic! I want permanent hearing loss and spontaneous abortions in the audience."

    I lol'd

    The only stereo rig that matters.

    And I think it might qualify as quadraphonic... or 7.1 or some ****

    Hmm. I don't really have any good new gear shots, so here's a cool photo my gf took when we were recording. I'll take some vinyl porn shots in a bit.

    Ok, I got super busy at work, it was lame since I couldn't keep up with the end of the last thread.

    Tried out the darkglass B7K at Bongripper practice last night. Verdict is, the low end is amazing on that pedal. My low notes (low F and such) were much more detailed and huge sounding than ever. However, over all the gain structure on my Rat is just so much more appealing to my (and my bands ears). I'm thinking of trying out some sort of clean blend/buffer/eq pedal to run my rat through to get a little more of that huge bottom that the darkglass had. My 84' whiteface Rat has a clean blend but I could get the huge low end or the bite of a rat, but not both. But the clean blend on it is a little hard to dial in hence the idea of a separate pedal (like the badger schism, or wounded paw blender).

    As far as the darkglass, I really wanted it to work but my old rat has beat out yet another contender. So it'll be seeing the classifieds soon.

    Any opinions on clean/parallel blending pedals to check out?

    Speaking of gear pics and cool pics and such. This might be the absolute coolest picture of me that's ever been taken.

    Plus it's a pretty good shot of the RD and my pedalboard.

    Haven't used a lot of them but I prefer pedals that have separate clean and dirty volume controls over one clean/dirty blend control. Another thing you can try is a simple loop with your rat and an EQ pedal to boost the lows. Slightly different effect but I find it sounds more natural than blending

    New thread New Music: These are some friends, played a few shows with them with the last band I did. I think they're pretty righteous, and Matt always plays barefoot.

    I spent a long time trying to figure out what was missing from my tone, and I realized I had the gain turned up just way too high. Dialing it back brought a lot back into my lows and mid lows that I was missing, sounding much better than just cranking the bass knob. These settings ended up resulting in a very angry and gnarly top end, with a real thick and meaty low end.
