Tech 21 bass XXL vs. Fulltone Bassdrive

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by CodeYbassboy, Jul 3, 2005.


  1. Apparently the Fulltone is the creme de la creme of bass overdrive units. Does anyone know how well the XXL compares to it?
     
  2. I may be wrong, but the Fulltone is an overdrive pedal and the XXL is a distortion pedal

    Maybe you want to compare it to the Tech 21 SA BDDI?

    Ive got a BDDI and love it, but i know there are people who prefer the Fulltone, try them both, choose your own, whats better is what works for you

    Yeah you can't really compare its more like the xxl takes off where the fulltone finishes, having both on your board would be great, but the xxl is no where near subtle even at lowest settings.

    Hope this helps
     
  4. actually that helps quite a bit. I'm looking for something subtle... now that I know the XXL doesn't do subtle I'm going to continue saving my pennies for a Fulltone. Incedentally... I live in the middle of nowhere in CT, so I don't get to try out gear very often.
