can you get a clean boost with the TS9DX, you cant with the bassdrive
You can't get a clean boost with your bassdrive?!!!
the only reason is because you don't know how use it!
have you tried keeping the drive controls dialed all teh way baack and using the volume control? also you get more clean headroom by using it with 18v instead of 9v
Also there's the push-pull knob on the BD for clean boost. Tried that?
Bassdrive has to be in "comp-cut" mode. Either pulling up the knob (older model) or a 3-way toggle switch on the newer models. Keep the drive all the way down.
ok got you yes the comp cut mode, i for got about that.but why do i still want an analogman ts9dx?
IMO, Bassdrive and Analogman ts9dx could go right together.
You can use the bassdrive as a Clean Bosst / Distortion and the ts9 to get that little grind you can't get from your bassdrive.
Analogman makes some great pedals, that's why. I have plans for at least two of his pedals to show up on the board I am curently putting together.
However, you should know what you are wanting before you get it. You are questining yourslef and asking why you still want a TS9DX, and honestly if you don't know then perhps it isn't wise to buy one.
If you ARE looking for a clean boost, there are pedals tailored for bass that are much cheaper than the Analogman designed specifically for bass.
That said, what you have is called Gear Acquisition Syndrome.
GAS for short.
everything you say is true. i like the ts9dx mainly becuase i have no more room left on my pedal train jnr for anything else and if i get rid of my bassdrive i can get some more analogman goodies
Or, you can spend a few bucks and get a bigger pedal board, or a second one and link them.
