I was looking for a good fuzz pedal for bass and noticed that almost every one that I found left me wanting for 'something' but I wasn't sure what. After trying every bass and guitar fuzz in the store, the sales guy said "Well, we have this boutique fuzz that we haven't tried yet" and walked over with the Violet Menace. I was about to pass on it when I noticed the Mids control. That caught me be surprise and when I plugged it in and dialed the mids up and back back into my tone, it was clear what had been missing. The combination of the Mids and Tone controls allows you to really dial in the perfect fuzz tone for the bass! Simply put, this is the fuzz that we all know and love but with the addition of controls that make it ideal for the bass (even though it was designed for 6 string guitars)!
