    I've seen some mention of these in the threads but it's been a little light on the details, as is the dod website.

    The tone knob boosts bass to the left and treble to the right? Does it also do the opposite; as in, does it boost bass and cut treble to the right, and visa versa? Any notion of what the frequency centers are?

    I've been on the hunt for a versatile boost pedal, wondering if this one is it.

    Also, currently bidding on an old fx10 on the bay, found out after I placed my bid it doesn't have a footswitch! Oh well

    The tone is a "tilt" when rotating the knob past noon counter-clockwise you are boosting lows and cutting highs, and when you rotate past noon clockwise you are boosting highs and cutting lows. It seems more complex than it actually is in practice. It is my personal favorite style of EQ for guitar or bass, lot of power in a single knob.

    Hey thanks!
  5. Yes, the tone knob is extremely well thought out in its simplicity. Super fatness to the left and great at dialing in the right grind to the right.

    Just picked up a Bifet Boost 410 and I like it. It does add a nice amount of fatty girth or clear grind, depending on where you dial it. Feed it into a Volt Thrower or a MBD-1 and it just takes it to another level.

    Neat low-cost boost to have in the tool box, even if you don't need it all the time.

    I this a proper, high quality buffer/booster when compared to the competition?

    I don't know if anyone thought about this, but I think this would be a perfect onboard preamp to put on a p-bass.

    Zombie thread bump!

    I got one recently too - very nice. Cheap (but not CHEAP), simple to use, nice gritty sound without being over the top.
