Kind of annoying but okay if that’s your thing , not me I like a deep smooth growling bass.


Agreed – aptly named pedal. But each to their own!

Reminds me of a dirtier take on the sound Chris Wholstenholme uses a lot at the beginning. I really like this pedals sound man, definitely has a place in a rock bassists arsenal imo!
