    hi
    I noticed many bassists use a boss pedal zone...
    isn't it a guitar distortion? is it good on bass???

    i tried it, and it sucks
    correction, it made my bass sound like a guitar with very few bass

    It does seem to lose some low end, but it cuts through nicely. Paul Malinowski uses one on a few soaring bits on Shiner's Lula Divinia, which is, anyway, a rock album bassists oughta hear.

    I see Black Metl bass players use it all the time. Allways, full on... :eek: Result: the sound of a vacuum cleaner.

    i tried it and thought it really sucked. made some really great sounding gear hae no tone and no depth and no niceness at all :ptoo high gain, eq set for mids rather than lows.

    the boss distortion that sounds best on bas imo, its the mega distortion. that thing is a monster. i played one at a local dealer and was pleastly suprised.
