🙈 Who Is It For?

Those that have a bass that they really love and play all the time with other pedals could benefit greatly from this pedal.

Many people love that it is for bass guitars, but one disadvantage is that they wish it was for other guitars as well, since it’s so handy and can do so much.

If you are someone that performs or has a band, there is no denying that this is a machine that has pretty much everything you need.

It can do so many effects and has all the crossovers and other options you would want, so you may not have to take any supplemental machines when you when you’re doing a show.

This one is also a lot bigger than mini pedals, but that doesn’t mean you can’t put it in your pedal box. It still isn’t too big to take where you want to go with it, and it only weighs a little over a pound, so it should be no trouble to carry around with your guitar.

If you’re new to the pedal game but not to the world of playing bass, this is something that you should definitely research as well. It may allow you to do all the things you’ve been thinking about, but you didn’t know they could be accomplished with just one device.

There are really no downsides to owning this one, and it doesn’t cost too much for most to be able to afford. It’s something that does a lot of jobs, so even if you only use it for a few things, it is still worth the money.

Besides that, it looks really cool and it’s still small enough to cart around. It may take a while to get used to the controls, but once you do, you’ll have a great understanding of all the things you can do with your guitar, and how you want to keep working at it.

Besides that, it will be fun to figure everything out.

💡 Bottomline

The bottom line is that this is the only pedal you’ll need to have with you when you’re playing your BASS.

It can do all the things you want it to do, including distortion effects, crossover, and there’s even a noise gate. At the same time, you can change up the tone, volume, sustain, and more.

This gives you so many options to get the sounds you’re looking for, and it’s all available in one gadget. Of course it’s a little bit bigger than the mini models, but it’s worth it, since you won’t have to lug a bunch of pedals around with you if you have to be on the go or away from your home base.

It’s also something that is built well and is made by one of the top names in the business, so there’s no reason to think it won’t hold up over time, or that it won’t meet all your demands.
