Your search for an extreme distortion for bass may end here.
I bought the older model because I simply had to have the glowing eyes. I was willing to sacrifice the real estate and deal with the top/sideways volume adjustment.
This thing delivers on it's promise to blow up your tone with really saturated distortion. It does maintain a good portion of bass frequencies with the bass boosted and the treble boost cut can really assist in fine tuning the attack for super duper dark distortion to armor piercing shrill distortion sounds.
When switching this thing on after playing with my preferred clean settings I tend to get lost a bit in the mix and have to boost up the mids to rectify that issue. Consider combining the use of the Blower Box with a preamp pedal to achieve what you might call "unity tone".
You can dial in some less gainy tones with this but I really think it shines most when pushed.
Super fun to switch this thing on, crank it up and watch jaws drop as it melts the paint of the walls.
