    ...it works well with bass. I bought one as a present for my guitarist last Christmas, but he couldn't get a tone he liked out of it. I tried putting my bass through it and was pleasantly amazed at how good it sounded. With the knobs set right, it keeps the bottom end and does some really high gain distortion - no doubt it's capable of other things, but that's what I use it for.

    It sounds unlike any of my other pedals (a couple of Big Muffs, a Rat, a Fulltone Bass-drive), so I swapped him another pedal for it. We play noisy, lo-fi three-piece rock, and I use it to push my bass forward in the mix and cut through on the song where I get a bass solo.
