    I already have a Fulltone Bass-Drive which covers all my overdrive needs but I'm looking for something for when I want a more fuzzy sound. I've tried the EH Big Muff but that doesn't give enough bass when it's sounding fuzzy enough. ANy suggestions?

    Hey Alex I work in MK. I thought you was from USA.

    NB the only place you can get zvex from in UK is http://www.soundsgreatmusic.com in Manchester (ask for Rick) they give 48 hours return if you dont like it (check).

    I tried the WM in Florida and the bass response is excellent however I dont use effects on bass much. My guitar board consists of a Fulldrive 2 and a ZVex Fuzz Factory. Zachary Vex's stuff is built as well as Mike Fullers (IMHO) but is a bit 'madder'.

    Hi Alex,
    I recently built a bass version of the "Big Muff" for a guy I know. It sounds really wicked. (Building FX units is a sideline/hobby of mine).
    If you already have the Big Muff it's easily modded for more bass.

    I've tried all of those as well as as the Prescription Depth Charge and owned an original Maestro Bass Brassmaster. The Black Cat Bass Octave is the best I have tried for bass to my ears. It is pretty much a clone of the Maestro. (You can select Octave on or off, blend signal and other cool things.) Check them out at Analogman.com.
