    Anyone ever tried this on bass?

    I was reading around about the band Dragged into Sunlight, and apparently their bass player uses it. He's got a pretty nasty tone.

    Guess not, darn!
  3. No reason why it wouldn't work. I own an Atomic Booster and I love it. Also owned a Love Squeeze and it was great as well. Rothwell quality can't be denied.

    Except that most distortions lose low end. Quality has zip to do with it.

  5. fair enough, what I meant was it should work since it has a tone and volume control. the Hellbender's circuit also has adds back the lows after the distortion stage from what I have read in the past

    Yeah the low end was my real concern, but he doesn't seem to be losing any. DiS has one hell of a low end.
    His setup as far as I know is a Yamaha 5 stringer->Matamp->4x12's??
