    I've been looking for a completely over-the-top fuzz pedal and the Death by Audio Soundwave Breakdown caught my eye. I ran a bunch of searches but I haven't been able to find any definite opinions on the pedal and how it responds to bass, people seem to either like it or think it sounds completely awful . Does anyone have any experience with this pedal? Any help or suggestions for other pedals would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Some sound clips can be found here:

    The Soundwave Transformer is a weird pedal. It doesn't have a level control. The one I had didn't work well with bass (neither did the Harmonic Transformer). Oliver is tops for service though.

    Thanks for that info, that's definitely good to know. I don't supposed you'd know of any pedals that produce a similarly intense sound, but work well with basses?

    No I don't sorry. I long resigned to the fact that I'm a Big Muff fuzz kind of guy.
