    Has anybody tried the Germanium OD on bass? I just got a Lomenzo Hyperdrive, and it is alright, but I would like somthing a little warmer that isn't quite so mid-focused.

    Would this be able to get a warmer, more blusey overdrive?

    I was also wondering this. Sound samples anyone!?
     
  3. I wan't a huge fan of it. In general i go to EHX for fuzz, NOT overdrive. I thought the OD on my EHX Holy Stain multi was better for bass than the Germanium.

    I heard a couple demos of the Germanium, and to me it sounded kind of brittle and harsh, I'd look else where, maybe give the EHX Bass Blogger a shot, its more subtle, might be what you're looking for

    I listened to the Bass Blogger and thought that it really didn't sound that great. Are there any other good overdrives that are worth trying?

  7. yep great pedal. super warm overdrive (not fuzz or distortion) tone. it's not a plug and play pedal, you have to fiddle with the knobs a lot to get the right sounds, but they're there.
