  1. Ever feel like the OP doesn't listen in these threads and just does whatever he wants at the end of the day? Not this thread. Not today.
    So I decided to sell my D*A*M Ezekiel because it was worth a lot, but I did like it a lot . I play a p bass through a Rumble 500 so I need something that sounds tubey. I play alternative and indie rock and also emulate a synth bass. My fuzz is a Spaceman Nebula, so I need an OD to complement it.
    Vote and I'll buy whatever get the most votes. EDIT- except the Aftershock or any pedal I've already owned

    Does the green rhino retain all the low end from bass?

    Yes, absolutely. There is a 100HZ pot that let you control the bass Level. In fact, you can even add low end with this pedal. I use this when playing with my bass VI that lacks a bit of low-end, and it works very well.

    Enjoy your new Other pedal, OP. I'm not familiar with Please Specify In Comments, they must be a pretty small company if they don't have a website, are they on facebook?

    I have a few suggestions.

    The Phat Phuk B with the knob pushed pass noon.

    The Doc Lloyd Grit n Girth is put together really well, high quality like the Nebula.

    Maybe the Earthquaker Monarch.

    I tried and subsequently flipped a decent number of ODs before I found some I really liked. The Southampton Fifth Gear V2 and the Lounsberry Rupert were the two left standing.


    The Rupert does that 70s big tube amp/OD thing better for me than anything else I tried. Possibly because it was designed from the ground up to do just that. Super simple to dial in too. Just a drive and level knob.

    Kinda pricey @$199 street. But it gets that sound I want, so it’s a keeper for me.

    If you’re looking for tubey, you’re looking for a Grizzly.
