    Toulouse, France – September , 2018 – After the summer pause Zorg Efects releases a new version of the Glorious Basstar. It’s now coming with a vertical enclosure and top loading jacks, instead of the horizontal side loaded old version.

    It features:
    • Top loading jacks for pedalboard space saving.
    • Multiband high gain overdrive.

    Wow. I... I think I need to get off Talkbass and do something to distract me from ordering one of these.

    It's definitely a cool concept, but I wasn't really digging any of the tones they were demoing. I also wish they would have left the Zorgverdrive out of it and instead spent that time just demoing the single pedal. Again, really cool concept, though!

    Agreed. Everything sounded a bit too fizzy on top for my tastes, even with the settings that had "cleaner" bass and mids dialed in.
  7. I've got the older PCB and have been working out a different pots/sw/jacks placement than stock ... wish I'd waited for this one — Top Jacks are good... but I'd still layout the Bass Mids Treble differently...

    As for the fizz, nothing an extra bit of tinkering won't fix. I liked the demo, showed the Basstar 2 on its own as well as showing how it sounds pushing the input with some OD.

    I like the Basstar, I like a lot of Zorg's other stuff, too.
