    Electro-harmonix Big Muff Pi Guitar Effects Pedal

    "Excellent For Bass"
    I was a huge Russian Pickle Fuzz fan until I bought this EHX Big Muff. The RP is great but the EHX Big Muff gives my bass more or less clarity and a wider range of fuzz/distortion tones. Backstory - I've been gassing to try the Big Muff for my guitar to see how it stands up against the gain channel on my tube amp. As much as I tried to convince myself to keep it I couldn't justify using it for guitar because the gain channel on my Vox tube amp can't be beat. It's just hands down the best....

    Voodoo Lab - Pedal Power 2 Plus

    "Works As Described"
    I was hesitant to buy this unit as I was comparing it to the Truetone CS7 1 Spot Pro Power Supply for price and specs (price and specs of the Truetone CS7 1 Spot Pro Power Supply appear better). However, I decided to purchase the Voodoo Labs Pedal Power® 2 PLUS because: 1. It is widely used and praised by many 2. I traded a bass cabinet that I didn't need which covered the cost of it and an SM58 microphone. 3. It was in stock. After now having the Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2 Plus for...

    Ernie Ball Super Slinky Flatwound Bass Set, .045 - .100

    "Impulse Buy"
    I was in Guitar Center looking to purchase a wind screen but they didn't have the size I needed. After checking out basses I browsed the string rack and impulsively bought these Super Slinky Flatwounds for my Jazz bass. I'm pleasantly surprised by the tone. They are both fat and punchy, with great clarity. The strings are very smooth, very playable. I've had flats that took some getting used to initially because they had a tacky feel, but these feel great right out the pack. Exactly...

    American Deluxe Dimension™ Bass Iv Hh

    "American Deluxe Dimension™ Bass IV HH Review"
    Edit - 7/25/17: I re-read my original review and can see that it was an honest review. I bold typed the portions that I feel correspond to this update. The problem that I had with this bass, which I sold, is that I found myself constantly messing with the tone knobs and switches to get a sound that would work for me. Also, after playing in a band setting, it just didn't cut through the mix. Therefore, I had to let it go and felt a responsibility to update this review. If you go to the...

    Thomastik-Infeld - POWERBASS BASS STRINGS

    "like owning a BMW"
    I was very reluctant about spending over $30 for bass strings, but having never read a negative comment about Thomastik-Infeld bass strings, curiosity got the better of me, and I'm glad it did. I seriously can't believe the tone these POWERBASS STRINGS ring out, and I mean RING because they do... they sing, they ring piano tones. Neither did I expect the flexibility. I've recently become a real fan of 45 - 90 gauge strings because of the flexibility of the gauge, but the POWERBASS...
