    2007.


    It's supposed to be subtle but I maxed out the setting at one point in the clip.

    Sounds good after too many beers tonite. Seems to keep the low end. I was thinking that it was pretty trottled back and not at full overdrive/fuzz capabilities, but your last post says it was maxed? Either way, sounds good.
     
  5. Is it by any of the following manufacturers:

    Tone Factor/Mojo Hand, Devi Ever:FX, Acoustic Imaginearing?
     
  6. I like it.

    Is this a rcubed clone job? ;)

    With lower gain, I often prefer pedals that will offer either: 1) The TONE, or 2) 'touch dynamics'. Neither was expressed in the sample for me, but I will say the dry tone wasn't really my cup either.

    Does it feature germanium diodes?

    It's not a clone. Hold off on the guessing. I'd prefer comments on the tone of it for now. It's not a typical fuzz/overdrive and probably shouldn't be thought of as one. But I'm not sure what to call it.

    I'll try it with a couple other basses.

    From what I heard on my PC, it was very mild and on the warm side...
    It's always tough to say on computers. It might be warmer w/ tubes, it might be too sterile on SS...

    Does it have germs in it?

    It's ok...just sort of middle of the road for me.

    I need to double check but it might not have any diodes in it. I'll open it up when I get home from work.

    no diodes! is this one of those trick "mystery dirt" threads, like the ones I post where it's a modelled effect or the tube pre of an amp?

    get your own schtick, dude :p
     
  15. I really like how it sounds! Closer to overdrive to my ears, but could go either way.
     
  16. my guess is some sort of tube screamer, dod 250+ type overdrive

    Both the TS and DOD are diode pedals though, so it's probably not either.

    It seemed pretty subtle to me, and pretty clean, with a dash of "edgyness" or fur. Almost like it was blended in. Not sure if I liked it or not.
     
  19. hmm yeah maybe a compressor like the new EHX black finger with the gain cranked?
