    I picked one of these up at GC yesterday because I had a store credit half expecting to give it to my guitarist and uhhhh WOW. I have never heard such an awesome bass overdrive/ distortion tone. It also has a clean boost on a separate switch and a blend knob to blend the distortion with the clean signal. I was most surprised that I didn't lose any low-end because I believe this is a guitar pedal and those usually kill a bass low end. Has anyone else tried one of these?

    and as i understand it....both pedals....are variations on the old Ibanez Tube screamer 808 circuit

    both of those pedals have a blend too, which as far as i'm concerned is pretty much a must for a TS based OD. looks good.
