    It's the best bass synth pedal that I have come across. You won't use it on every song, but used sparingly, it'll bring a smile to your face (or at least let you cover those tunes with the funky keyboard bass lines!).

    That's exactly what it say's, Flamming Funkdrive!! LOL! We have a pedal guru out here in MA that makes his own stuff. His name is Roger Lavallee. He's a freak of nature.
    I went to his studio one night and he has every pedal known to mankind so I started farting around with a bunch of them and I came across this old Big Muff that just had the sweetest Bass fuzz I ever heard. It was a early 80's model when they went to some different resistors and such.
    Well he custom made me one with the same circuit as the big muff but with some added lowend. He also added a Octaver on one side. It is the sweetest bass Fuzz I ever heard, The octaver is kinda useless but it makes for some strange tones. Zoomboy had one made for himself also.
    I wish I had a sample cause it reall sounds pisser.

    Does Roger sell these? If so, how much? I'd love something like that, but with a variable crossover (for affecting only the higher frequencies) in place of the octaver.

    I'm not sure Tom, Me and Zoomboy were both at his studio at the same time so we both had one made. He runs a full blown studio and it took me about 5 months to finally get it. I will ask him if I can post his email so you guy's can ask him questions. He makes all kinds of pedals and will make them as close as he can to your specs providing he can get the OEM parts.

    Understood. If he is willing, I'd be interested in having his e-mail address. If not, I have another friend who does a lot of pedal building and tweaking.

    Hey MS, yes, you still win! But what the heck is the "Prunes&Custard" pedal!?! :eek:

    Tom.

    No. I called Fulltone on that one, and they said that despite using different case covers, and despite earlier models having a sticker that said "Bass-Drive" over the silk screened "Full-DriveII" (like mine), and older models having the "Bass-Drive" screened directly to the box, the circuitry has always been the same. That said, it has recently appeared that there are some new options being offered on the Bass-Drive that are not listed on the website. Namely, a mini toggle for compressor settings. You may want to check out one of the recent threads on the Bass-Drive.

    I heartily recommend that you pick one up. It's a great unit.

    Tom.
     
  15. Yes, I listened to a sound clip of it and the tone is awesome. a bit expensive but for a tone I've wanted forever for I think it will be worth it.
     

  16. Mine. :D
