    I've came the decision I want to push a bunch of gain to add some dirt to my sound. If anyone is familiar with the suicide machines, their bass players sound on recent albums would be the target. I know he uses Traynor with the gain way up. I'm looking to do it with a pedal. Looking for guidance. As of now I'm considering an EHX hot tubes to see if I can add some tube dirt that way. Please, shower me with your opinions

    It sounds like you want just a bit of overdrive and not full on fuzz/distortion. Short of actually getting a tube amp, something like a BlueBerry Bass Overdrive (Ampeg in a Box style pedal) or a Tech 21 VT Bass DI might suit your fancy. I have a Wren and Cuff Phat Phuk B that adds a bit of heft to my sound and that may also be in the realm of what you're looking for.

  3. Agreed - also vote for damnation mbd1/mbd2. can go from juicy overdrive to grind and always sounds great.
