    not much ratish for a rat based pedal, moar demos!!!
  5. It definitely has a different flavour to, say, a Blower Box or Rat Tail - good range of tones, and high and low gain both sound decent to me

    Looks like I'll need to buy one, then

    Finally a video demonstration. it's kinda rough sounding for my taste, but still a great sounding pedal for those who wants a raunchy bass distortion.

    They're expecting an April release date. There should be an update or two before it's released.

    I understand it as separate volume controls for clean and wet signals, which is really handy IMO.
    To me the wet isn't a blend as it is described in the video.

    Hi guys! Pretty excited on this pedal :).
    From my understanding, MXR Bass Innovations does the separate dry (clean) and wet (dirty) signals so the user can fine tune more than having 1 knob that balances the two. Instead of a blend, think of them as separate volumes for the dry and wet signals. Each has a little more volume on tap too, which fixes the volume handling of simple 1 knob blends.
    This pedal is a homage to a popular distortion of yore with a similar tone pot. If you add in treble, mids, and bass control, it takes away from the "just plug in and play" mentality that MXR BI wants to provide users (this is my take on how I read their ethic, not quoted from them or anywhere...my personal take). Too many knobs gets confusing to the "mass market."
    It's pretty raunchy because it's a bass distortion, not an overdrive. The tonal variety b/w silicon and LED lends a leg up to people who want a more natural sound or a more compressed, warmer sound.
    I hope you guys at least check it out for yourselves when it hits stores. Worth a trip to local muzak shop :).

    Sounds like April release. I like this demo from NAMM. Shows a little more diversity.

    This is on my want list, even if I don't have an immediate gig application for it...yet.
    For pedals that mix wet/dry signals, I am happy with either separate level controls or blending+master level-They are different approaches that can achieve the same result.
    Sounds good on the videos!

    So, for those who have had a chance to try this, I'm looking for some insight. I'm looking for a distortion pedal with a warm tube type sound. But, here's the kicker, I like the idea of being able to control the clean and dirty tone. I want to use a very subtle distortion, from what I've heard on youtube, this unit may fit the bill... thoughts?

    No but I'm pretty certain MXR probably got this in the hands of some players prior to launch. Hoping one of them can provide some insight.
