Hello bass players! I am a 4th year electrical engineering student and I am doing my final design project about bass overdrive and distortion. I am going to clip bass signals using a variety of methods (diode,bjt,mosfet,jfet,etc)... and analyze the result in time and frequency domains. I would really like to know what bassists look for in an overdrive/dist. I am a bassist myself, and I know what I like, but I want more opinions. The dream is to make something quality, simple and custom available for a reasonable price, but for now I have to settle with research. FILL ME IN!
