    I've posted clips of my new favorite overdrive for you to guess. It should prove amusing.

    The clips are of my G&L SB-2, just the neck (P) pickup. Each setting is demoed with 80% volume (more traditional P-bass tone) and 100% volume (hotter than hell). There is a clean (bypassed) clip first (of both volume settings), followed by clips of increasing drive.

    20 questions-style format until someone guesses the OD correctly and wins a Marvel comics no-prize courtesy of Stan "The Man" Li, nothing more.

    yes, it's sloppy. it's just a game. Yes, there's some clipping, but I tried to maintain a steady volume (though you'll notice this got hard toward the end).

    Oh, and I hope you all like Budgie! :bassist:
