    Hi everybody!
    For reasons I can't explain I have my Colorsound Bass Fuzz and Barber B-Custom Cool OD pedals for sale.

    The Colorsound Bass Fuzz is in excellent condition and has been modded by Mr. Mark Humphrey for a 9 volt adapter. They do not come stock on these. This is hands down the best bass fuzz I have ever used!
    With much regret I will will let this go for $145 shipped conus. SOLD!
    Paypal preferred.

    Secondly I have a like new in box Barber B-Custom Cool OD pedal. There is a small paint scratch on the bottom, as you can see in the provided pic. Otherwise it is immaculate.
    This is the nicest OD pedal I have tried on bass. I am just not a low gain, OD type guy so I am gonna stop trying! It has 4 internal trimpots that are very useful. Bass, midrange, note shape, and presence. This pedal has tons of bottom, which I was very impressed by! Sounds awesome. There is quite a detailed description of this pedal on Barbers' website if you need further info.
    I will sell this for $105 shipped CONUS. PRICE DROPPED TO SELL FAST!

    This is from the website:
    B-Custom brings about a few “new things”, first we have the new Barber Custom shop brand name “B-Custom”, and this signifies products built within the Barber custom shop by Ronni Santmyer. The B-Custom products are smaller runs or even “one off” highly customized audio devices built to accommodate players demanding requests for nuance after nuance, and detail after detail of highly sought after features, sound and build quality. B-Custom carries on the commitment to deliver stellar audio at very musician friendly prices, with a large dealer network throughout the world, and delivery times that have you playing our devices on stage, in the studio or at home, instead of dreaming endlessly about their eventual arrival.

    The Custom Cool is the first true B-Custom product and has some new B-Custom features such as:
    EQ switching- This allows you to have two totally different EQ curves, using only one tone control by simply employing a push/pull switch, we call these “SR EQ” and “Snarl EQ”, the first being quite flat response to preserve your guitar’s beautiful tone that you so carefully selected, and the second having a wicked fat midrange of sweet barbed wire with loads of fundamentals, without the silly “hump” sound.

    Smooth/Crunchy- Yep, just like peanut butter you can have smooth or crunchy sounds with the Custom Cool. This again uses the push/pull method of switching between the well known Barber style smooth tone or a new dynamic/raunchy no holds barred rude presentation, all this in a sophisticatedly tuned, low gain architecture to please the classic tone connoisseur.

    Internal Trims- These are our familiar, easy to use internal controls that players can use to dial the Custom Cool into their own personal gear, they include- Note shape, Bass, midrange and presence.

    The Custom Cool project started when Monster Mike Welch came to us in search of an overdrive to help with rental back-line gigs, where he needed a reliable sounding amp style overdrive pedal, to emulate the sound he gets from his cranked smaller amps he uses for club dates. After sending pedals back and forth and lots of discussion, the first proto of the Custom Cool was born, we have added EQ switching and the smooth/crunchy switching since Mike’s early prototype, but the sound we brought together for him is well retained with a few other tweaks added to give ultimate flexibility.

    Precision matched components-using proprietary specifications to ensure symmetrical and specific asymmetric clipping and reduced intermodulation distortion. This allows complex chords to be heard with total definition and clarity at any level of overdrive. True bypass switching with led indicator
    Three way toggle- This control allows three distinct styles of symmetry to allow a perfect mate to your amps character.
    Hand made-Built in the B-Custom shop by Ronni Santmyer
    Volume knob response circuitry-numerous shades and textures at your fingertips just by adjusting your volume knob.
    Cast aluminum enclosure-our incredibly durable enclosure will last decades if not centuries!
    Double sided pc board with plate through holes-This is the way the military does it when they want electronics to work FOREVER! all pedals should be made this way , few are.
    8 knob control for tonal versatility-The Custom Cool uses eight (including internal trim pots) control knobs as follows, Volume, Tone, Dynamics and Drive. Internal controls for Note shape, Bass, Midrange and presence.
    Unique control- The note shape allows you to adjust your sound from tight and focused to a big round vintage tone, The dynamics control has earned a great reputation over the years for setting the transfer to smooth singing overdrive or raspy growling deep dynamics, continuously!
    Barber adjustable phono style recovery stage- Most of our op-amp based overdrive pedals use a cool old style phonograph circuit to recover the frequencies lost in the overdrive stage, this worked great for vinyl and now works great for guitar and bass overdrive!




    Thanks so much for looking and peace!

    Yeah, it honestly is an amazing pedal. I am just going in a different direction musically, have plenty of half-ass fuzzes to get me by when I might actually have a use for one.
    This deserves to be prominently displayed and used!
    I sure wish I could...believe me. That's why I sent it out to be modded for 9 volt adapter. :bawl:

    Yeah, I hope it is coming hERE! haha
    I would like to just have one small fuzz to cover the basics for me when I need it, sadly smoking crunching bass fuzz is no longer integral for me. :(
     
  8. I don't have enough of a need for fuzz to jump on this right now, but I am DEFINITELY interested in this, a regular Tone Bender, and a Woolly Mammoth one day for fuzz...
