    This is an interesting pedal, built to mimic the rangemaster treble boosters of legend.

    I bought this pedal primarily for guitar, but while I had it set up for demoing, figured would test it out on bass as a goof. It is, technically a HPF after all, and being a Tber, of course I like that.

    If you are interested, here is a video showing some crappy jamming, and I go through the settings a bit at the end:

    Personally I think it sounds pretty gnarly as a full-range bass boost, and definitely has it’s place. I didn’t love most of the bass rolloff settings, as I think the bass cut is a bit too drastic, but there is potential to use that as an interesting effect for a bridge or something, and there is some cool potential for blending with a clean signal.

    Here is another video showing how it affects 8 string and de-tuned guitars. IMO it really works great for that.

    ironically, I haven’t yet tried it for classic rock and Queen guitar sounds, which was why it was purchased originally.

    Curious what you all think about this thing on bass, and if it has any potential.
