Not a sexy pedal, perhaps, but just what I need! I'm playing more jazz and fusion, and getting called to solo more. And frankly, unless I'm going for an effected sound (filter, octave), I like the sound of my bass through my rig as it is (Doc Lloyd compressor, Sonic Farm 2di4). So I'm not looking to add "grit" or "hair" or any other descriptive thing to my tone. I just need to be a little louder... And the Spark Mini does exactly that. I just got it last week, and now it's the pedal that I press most.
