My first pedal build...it only took about a month to go from nearly zero electronics knowledge to a home made clone of the BJFE BBBOD pedal. This was no easy task, but I did it, and I'm pretty proud of myself. I gave myself the option of changing out some of the parts to experiment with different sounds, but I haven't done that yet. I'm happy with it as is and I'm afraid if I handle it too much more wires will start breaking off and will need to be re-soldered. In short, I'm really happy with it! It has a nice range of OD from barely noticeable to pretty gritty. It mellows out the high end a tad, making the tone warmer, and a tad darker. It retains the low end nicely, and actually gives a little bit of a low boost (I'm not sure if it's technically boosting the lows, but it fills out the low end a bit). With the tone knob all the way counter clockwise it gets a bit farty. The farty tone may not be for everyone, but it's actually an advantage. To have the end of the range out of you preferred tone zone means you can dial in a tone you want. My favorite setting is with the Volume (V) at 2-3 o'clock, Tone (T) at 9-10 o'clock and Drive (D) at minimum to 9 o'clock. This fattens up the tone, fills it out, with a little bit of grit. It's subtle, but there. Here are just a few clips, there are more on Sound Cloud. I'm playing a Mike Lull P4 with fairly new, bright round wounds. I often prefer flats with this bass, but I've been experimenting with rounds so this is what y'all get! I'm playing with the dynamics in this track. One of my favorite living room settings. I'll have to see how it does in a band situation. Everything set to noon. Volume at 3 o'clock, Tone at noon, Drive at noon. Gives a little idea of the volume boost of this pedal. There's even a little more room to go on the volume. Really subtle with the drive at minimum.
