and if so, were the pedals and kits any good?
Thanks for all input on this!
Have the Hjart Muller Lo|Fat Bass Overdrive that is very good, plenty of low end and a responsive od. Use i t on my classsic rock board for the perfect grunt and it plays well with other drives. Got it in trade so don't know how challenging the build is.
I had the Mushroom echo for a while, good built quality but the photo-sensitive sensor was not much controllable.
I found the schematic for their Lo|Fat Bass Drive so I etched my own PCB for it and built it. IMO, it sounds pretty darn good considering the simplicity of the design.
Does it sound like anything you know that is already out there?
(or; which pedal(s) might be covering the tones found in this one...and possibly do it even better?)
Maybe John can speak to a comparison, it works for me so it stays.
not really, it's pretty much a simple OD/distortion. it doesn't have a lot of depth or complexity to its sound, but it's decent. especially for what it is.
IMO, a TS808 modded for bass is a bit nicer sounding.
And since we are on it...would the TS808 modded for bass be your favourite TS style OD, or which others might be worth looking into?
Will agree that the Lo|Fat is not as complex sounding as other drives, that may be a reason it is a keeper 4 me plus it is in contrast to other drives in the collection.
This too is a pretty convincing point.
I bought one of the Hjart Muller Low/fat bass driver kits, it was my first pedal build. its worth the money. The instructions are extremely noob-friendly. I learned a lot from the kit; those instructions are gold, man.
I sold the pedal a few months back for a hundred bucks, and just built one on vero last week for about 25 bucks. sounds the same, its a nice useable dirt pedal, which also sounds good on guitar. Of all my builds, I liked this one and the Ezekiel 25:17 the best for bass dirt.
I will never buy a pedal again, its too easy to build them.
+1. Lots of fun tho.
