    Ok, I used my two OD pedals (Pork Loin and the Philosopher's Tone) last night in a bass-drums jam (guitarist couldn't make it). First, the Philosopher's Tone is absolutely incredible. It's the germanium chip special edition, and it's obvious why it's a rather expensive pedal. Compressed without being squished, and a very focused OD/distortion.

    The Pork Loin was also surprisingly good when I cranked it. It was more wild and open sounding (it doesn't have the compression circuitry that the PT has), but had a usable and musical distortion to it.

    So for now, I'm going to use the Pork Loin (the Philosopher's Tone is my girlfriend's and unfortunately I need to return it) for the little distortion I need. Perhaps in the future I'll look into the Boss ODB-3 or other overdrives, but for now I'm set.


    But with any tone chase, "for now" is a rather variable term. :bassist:

    lol, you dummies.

    add Type O Negative to that list. October Rust has quickly become one of my favorite albums ever.
     

  7. I have the TH pedal, and I like the tone quite a bit, not as nice as the WA but good enough. From what I have read the TH amps sound "better" than the pedal, we'll see I suppose, but even if it doesn't the size and weight of the TH500 make it a much better option as a backup amp compared to the WA.

    beebass loves music like this:
     
  13. I don't say yet....just what I read. it seems the interaction between the gain and drive controls on the TH amps is what makes them different from the pedal.
     
  14. Is that Fuzz Face based to have only one knob?

    Can't recall what the type of wood dye was ( yes dye not stain) but it tuned out great. Unfortunately the body is the only thing left as I have sold all the parts. May build it back up some day if I come across a cheap neck

    Highly interested in your findings since you will own both. Wish they made a higher wattage version since I would only use it with the 8ohm cab.
     
  17. Nice, it's wild how the dye makes the wood look like you would never see the grain again then the oil pulls it back out. Did you just mix the dye with water?

  19. I asked the stained the neck if I should do tru oil or wipe on poly and he said the he sticks with oil to keep the resonance of the wood, and the other guy told Satr not to use oil lol. I think he doesn't use either on bodies though, must paint or laquer them or something. It really is nice being able to work in the house with the oil and not have the chemical smells. I think I will do my first coat of oil on the neck tonight.

    Yeah, pretty sure it was powder based. My friend pre mixed it. If I ever get this bass going again putting a dead j pickup in and finding another old dimarzio then just volume to jack. Kinda janky but will be cool. Also NGD
