    Just got the above-mentioned pedal in the mail. Thanks Lyle!

    Recorded with -
    Jazz bass (Both Pickups Full, Tone Full)

    Ran thru a Sansamp PBDDI, Bypassed.

    V- Volume, L - Low, H - High, M - Middle, MF - Mid Frequency, D - Distortion Gain. All numbers are in o'clock.

    It's quite amazing how much an EQ can do to the sound. IMO, the EQ lends to the pedal a unique tone shaping ability, rather than make it a vesatile-do-it-all pedal. Samples 3 thru 6 demonstrates the Eq creating some unique fuzz tones, at least to my ears. Enjoy!


    MT2: Clean

    Cool stuff!

    That last clip is definitely the best one. Goes to show you how much having an actual amp to work with (or in this case, an emulated SVT) can impact the sound of a pedal in these recordings.

    Those clips sound great, especially the Hysteria clips. You sound better with that pedal than I ever did.

    Sucks I had to sell it, as it was probably one of the best heavy distortions/fuzzes I've ever owned.

    Thanks. On hindsight (or hearing rather), I now realize most of the clips sounded a little on the muddy side. Its kinda scary how the MT-2 accentuates treble frequencies, but it's not impossible to control it, in fact I simply overdid it! :meh:

    The last one is definitely best, but I also like the little thing on the end of the 3rd one, funky, I like it.

    Thanks, but credit goes to Rocco (TOP). Its one of his basslines, can't quite remember the song title. Can anyone help me out if they hear it! :help: Thanks! :bag:
