Well I have done searches on a lot of the topics I'm asking about with no good. Anyway, first off, I hear rave reviews about both HBE pedals. But which is better suited for bass? I assume that it would be the Hematoma, but Big-D is good stuff too. What do you guys think and why? Also, after listening to the Ashdown Bass Drive clips and clips of other OD's, they all sound really buzzy and thin. Well minus the Hematoma I heard. Anyway, I'm guessing most of those pedals were tracked with passive basses and I do take into account that they aren't being recorded "pro". Well, passive's usually sit well with all kinds of distorted colors, but active's traditionally don't, at least not with fuzz. But they should be just peachy with OD and distortion. So has anyone tried any of the two HBE's, the Mesa Bottle Rocket or V-Twin or the Ashdown with an active bass? I don't really want buzz, I want what that old lady got from Wendy's... beef. I mean I have a food fuzz (PC Depth Charge) and I want a good OD or two and one good solid distortion (leaning GT-2). I don't really want mix type colors of distortion, if you get what I mean. Lastly, does anyone else think that the Tech 21 GT-2 is one of the better/most versatile distortion pedals for bass? Thanks gang.
