  1. IMG_2742.JPG Man, i cant believe I've played so many years without one of these. If I could only have one pedal besides a tuner this would be it.

    So useful, my cab doesnt fart out anymore and B string sounds super tight!

    You're welcome :D OK, so I didn't design it or anything, but Josh started making the LPF because of a thread of mine wanting a variable LPF in a micro pedal and not being able to find one. That led to his little HPF which led to his combining them into one MXR-sized pedal. I use separates because I don't want LPF on my upright when I double, but the single pedal with both is great if you don't need to split the duties.

    I know...pretty cheesy of me to try to steal Josh's thunder...I'll stop in a couple years :D

    Agreed. After using that pedal for the past few months I have a hard time imagining how I got by without one for so long.

    I have one of these also pure magic as far as I am concerned. makes my low B sound so much better and takes some of the sizzle out of the highs. Just an amazing pedal .

    Josh makes great stuff.

    How are you liking the Horizon Precision drive?

  8. Well, your opinion carries a lot of weight around here. So when I read you singing it's praises on more than one occasion, I knew i couldn't go wrong.

  9. havent had much time to play with it yet.

    I like it. It's way better than a tube screamer clone. The noise gate work really well. The attack knob or highpass filter cuts out a good amount of bass, might be too much for some. I wish you could bypass the HPF completely.

    Nice of you to say, but I hope you say that if I recommend a pedal you don't like in the near future :D

    I am definitely picking one of these up. Been reading about them for a bit and glad to finally have tracked down the channel to reach out! TB is truly an amazing community. Now just have to wait for Josh to get back from vacation to get a response from my PM.:hyper::bassist::D

    I thinking of getting a high pass filter very soon. My question is......

    I use a Bergantino Speakers that have a frequency cut off of around 45hZ. Will a high pass filter be a benefit if the speaker filters frequency's at this point? Or is it overkill. Can this filter still tighten up my tone?

    Thanks.....

    I had already decided to pick up the BA HPF later this week, but now I'm considering this instead. Even though there is only one bybass switch for both filters, wouldn't the extreme ranges of each allow you to effectively come close to "turning off" each one (i.e, dialing down the HPF all the way to 20hz or dialing up the LPF all the way to 20Khz...)?

    Edit: to add -- speaking in the context of a 4 string bass guitar...

    I believe the LPF goes to 16k, but for all practical purposes on bass it's about the same as 20k. But yes, it's effectively the same as turning them off.

    Thanks JimmyM! I was going by 20kH as that's what's on the version on the website now (specs say 20kH too); I was incorrect on the HPF though -- I said it went down to 20H but it looks like it goes down to 25H. I agree -- not much difference in either the HPF or LPF case for practical purposes.
