    I'm trying to decide on a new pedal :bassist:
    Which would you rather have?

    Death by Audio Apocalypse

    Just the insanity of this seems cool.

    Dwarfcraft Devices Eau Claire Thunder

    This seems to do a lot and all of it way over the top and crazy which i'm thinking will be fun.

    This one seems versatile I'm defintley thinking the octave up switch might be cool on bass.

    or the obligatory CARROTS!!!

    Other than the vids on Youtube, which are great, i haven't heard to much opinion on what people think about these pedals.

    It's kind of scary spending that much money on a pedal I'll probably never get to play unless I buy it. So any input on any or all of these would be greatly appreciated :hyper:

  3. Word on the street is that the eau claire thunder sounds massive on bass,

    ECT was awesome when I played a friends

    It's just a big enclosure, and one maybe two switches you'll never use

    And I think it's basically a muff but on steroids

    Maybe check out a grey stache

    Apocalypse loos cool too

    The hoof reaper is two variations of the same kind of circuit if I'm not mistaken

    I would pick one with better internal construction than the DBA. I haven't seen inside the other two you named.

    i use a wmd bass mod geiger counter, which can do a pretty convincing tube overdrive when i want to be a little more conservative, or totally insane

    I have an Eau Claire Thunder, and love it. It is simply hugetastic. So many amazing sounds to be had.

    If you don't want the huge enclosure and multiple footswitches, Dwarfcraft makes a smaller version called the Baby Thundaa - BABY THUNDAA | Dwarfcraft

    In the beginning i was leaning toward.the apocalypse but the more research i do on the thunder i hear its great for bass. and all those dang knobs and switches look like a blast
