Disclaimer!!!: Sorry about the wall of text, but think it is needed to understand what I am looking for and why. Hope it won't discourage too many from even bothering trying to help me out. Any suggestions that possibly could help me out with this issue will be highly appreciated. . First let me explain a bit about my setup and bass, which I think is needed to understand exactly what it is I am looking for and why. First of all I play a 28,6" scale 5 string Ibanez GSRM25 Mikro bass which I have tuned in F# standard, as in 2 half steps above standard E tuning, which means F#1 to D3, and which I use a bit more like you would a Bass VI type instrument or a baritone guitar than how you more traditionally would play a bass, which means a lot of melodic lines, chord breakups, and a fair share of double stops and simple chords. I have it stringed with a set of strings meant for a 29 5/8" scale Bass VI type instrument tuned in E, installing the strings on my bass by looping them through the bass string ball ends cut off some old strings in order for the strings not slip through the mounting holes in the bridge, since these strings got much smaller guitar string ball ends, and it works perfectly. The gauge and tuning of the strings on my bass is as follows: F#1=.090 B1=.074 E2=.054 A2=.042 D3=.030 This gives me a quite bright, snappy and biting tone, really rich on harmonic content, but with less pronounced fundamentals than you would typically have from a traditional bass tone. Also I have my signal path split in 2 parallel signal path with separate pedals for each individual path, one path carries my bass signal while the other starts with a Sub'n'Up Mini octaver, right after the split, set to pitch my bass signal 1 octave up, giving me an effect somewhat similar to playing an octave bass, as in a bass with pairs of bass and octave strings, only I this way am able to manipulate the bass and the 1 octave up signal separately. Now to my issue: I still need a really heavy sounding distortion, preferably with a fuzzy quality to is and some rawness, not really an insanely hard gain, just heavy sounding, to complete my setup though. The plan is to find a distortion or eventual fuzz pedal that works well for my bass and got some of the qualities described in the above paragraph and then blend in some clean bass signal using my Boss LS-2, to maintain some more definition, and then have some kind of distortion on the 1 octave up signal as well. Note that I am not interested in isolating the distortion to the higher frequency spectrum, I want the lows distorted as well, perhaps even more so than the high end, in order to maintain this dark and heavy sound I have in mind, blending in some cleans will secure some definition is maintained, and the distortion on the octave signal will make sure there is a good amount for distorted top end as well. Now the problem is that non of the 3 distortion pedals I have available works for my application, primarily because the main riffs for one of the songs I have composed that I use this bass for utilize an open string harmonized with fretted notes on the string bellow, and while sounding fine with clean tone it really does need to be distorted and heavy sounding, however the 3 dirt pedals I have that could potentially give me this emphasis and amplified the kind of clanky sound this riff has, practically making a distorted very prominent and annoying clank sound overshadow everything else while playing that riff. Even with the high frequency control knob turned all the way down on those dirt pedals there is still too much distorted clank noise left, and by then they are getting way too muffled sounding to actually be useful anyway. I should note that one pedal I own that did not emphasis and amplify the clank was my Joyo Orange Juice, which unfortunately just is way too crunchy and not quite heavy enough sounding at higher gain setting to be of any use for me, but it could actually have worked if it have had a different kind of distortion character. So my question is as the headline says, do anyone have any suggestions for a dirt pedal, distortion or fuzz, that will smooth out or mask the clank instead of distorting, amplifying, and making it much more pronounced, preferably capable of a heavy sounding, but not really insanely high gain, slightly fuzzy tone, and also preferably with a kind of raw quality to it (and remember I actually would want to have my low end distorted as well, perhaps even more so than my high end)?
