  1. Hey everyone, I was reading about this pedal today and it sounds pretty awesome on guitar, was wondering if any of you NAMM goers had a chance to try it out on bass? I think it could sound pretty cool. Any info/ videos of this pedal around? I couldn't find anything!

    I tried it on bass back in October.
    It's a nice fuzz, but iirc there was a little low end loss. It did have a nice character, and the oct up sounds sweet

    No demo of the pedal with the octave engaged?

    Reviving an old thread because the Sub Machine is out now which I own and recommend as a great fuzz pedal. can be very mellow when set at 0 and the sub octave barely engaged to keep the lows, vol and Tone depends on signal going in. also the series parallel switch makes a huge difference in overall tone. I prefer parallel to keep the lows. The submachine is the same pedal as La Machine but with the octave button as a stomp on/off button, series/parallel button, and a suboctave level knob AND it's also only about 10 bucks more.....get the sub machine.

    I've been curious about this pedal since I saw it in the "Sound Like Royal Blood" video that Anderton's did. I've yet to explore any pedals since I've never been an effects guy but the La Machine looks awesome for "lead bass" kind of stuff where you need the octaver + a great distortion sound.

    Yes. I have never been an effects guy or even needed a pre amp, I had a eden world tour di and took it back the next day, just wasn't my thing. I bought this pedal when I was looking for a fuzz just to play around with, the guy at the shop recommended it. it was very weird to me at first but check out the manual and tweak from there. it is a fun one to experiment with and can get a little synthy.
