How do you dirty up your signal before the SA BEF when using Hot Hands

    For everyone trying to make some mean dubstep wobbles with the hot hands.
    I've seen people use synths, distortion, fuzz, ring mods...
    I was using the metal distortion on the Boss ME-50B but I really didn't like that pedal much for anything else. So I've been buying stuff to replace it but haven't found something yet that gives the BEF the right dirt it needs to make those evil talking wobbles I was getting with that setting on the ME.
    So I need some ideas to help me figure this out. Also it's just cool to see how everyone is using this pedal. Audio samples would be awesome. In my signature is a little song I did running the ME into the BEF

    ^all of those are great choices. The one most would suggest would be a Woolly Mammoth or Mastotron (clones are EVERYWHERE for cheap). The Oxide, although I've had no experience with it - yet - is also a good solution. You need a fuzz, basically, and a gated one to get a good base foundation. Experimentation is key, although its not so nice on your wallet. There are many wonderful choices. One of m favorites is the Fairfield Circuitry Unpleasant Surprise.

  5. I use a B:assmaster. So far. Just got my BEF yesterday!

    I already tossed up a quick video since I had the afternoon off. I went crazy with my pedals.

    This was way more "Funky" and not really "Wobbly" at all, though.

    I've gotten a decent wobbly sound, but this video is NOT that sound. My pedal is so new that I've forgotten how I got it. I'll have to get more familiar with the BEF and post how I got it.

    I don't have experience with that filter, but with my Xerograph D, the Devi Ever Bit is my favorite.

    Thanks for all the advice. I ended up getting the Mastotron and I'm loving it!
