Im just curious what setting fulltone bass drive users prefer.
I almost always use the CC setting to give my signal a very subtle warm overdrive. No one but me would even notice unless I turned it off. This replaces my sansamp type grind without the annoying lack of definition that the bddi imparted on my signal when switched.
If I want to be Jack Bruce (very seldom), then I use fm mode.
generally I use comp cut, gives the nicest warm overdrive sound IMO.
I like 'em all!
I tend to only stay in the CompCut mode. I don't even see how the other 2 can be usefull in a band sitiuation. They seem thin and a cheap attempt to sound like a distorted guitar.
Can anyone give me a suggestions on setting the knobs optimally to simulate (as best as the pedal will allow) a 1970's overdriven SVT? I've tried to do this with the San Amp Bass Driver but I don't think its anywhere close to sounding like tube overdrive/distortion. I also can not deal with that pedal's lack of mids. I get buried in a loud band mix.
While we're on this topic, here's a Fulltone BD question that I'd love to settle by simply playing w/ one, but nobody in town (Atlanta) seems to carry them -- and I don't feel like dropping 2 bills just to test drive a stompbox.
So does the BD have the capability to do more fuzzy tones as well, or is it strictly of the OD flavor?
I currently have a Korg ToneWorks 104d Hyper-Distortion box with 2 switchable channels/settings (like the Fulltone). I set up a basic OD tone for some mild grit in channel A, then a seriously yucked-up face-melting tone in channel B.
The Korg works, but I'm looking for something more bass-friendly...
It can definitely do a more saturated distortion, but I wouldn't call it face melting
Hmmmmmmmmm. Good to know. Thanks!
I don't know. I think I've melted a face or two with mine. It can get pretty dirty sounding.
I been wanting to try this pedal for a while. Just don't have the money. oh well.
Everybody was talking very highly about this pedal a while ago. I haven't really heard a negative thing about it.
Why not me!!??
I agree, but it's not like a Zvex Woolly Mammoth or a real extreme fuzz.
For my part, I suppose degree of fuzz isn't necessarily the key -- more a singing sustain-y distortion, i.e. Billy Sheehan meets Tony Levin.
Sounds like this box will do it .
