in need of s dark/fat boost

T

Tecx

Well I am a bass player, and I just bought a Vanamps Reverbamate. I have the Reverbamate in a TB loop, and I want to put a good DARK boost after it to beef of the tone and to bring it up a few dB's. Here is what I need:

1. lots of bass and low mids, reduced highs - nice and dark.
2. capable of a good amount of CLEAN volume - 20db's or so.
3. It doesn't necessarily need to be a "clean boost", it could be a OD pedal that can be coaxed as a clean boost. Ala the Barber LTD (I have one but its not loud enough in this setting).
4. smallish footprint
5. in the $90-$120 range.

The vampamps is freaking great, I just like my verb loud and dark...

Cheers, and thanks.

The AnalogMan Beano Boost has an awesome "deep" setting. How it would sound for your bass, I don't know!

I have talked to nick about that a few times, I think I may eventualy get one - but not for that pourpos. As at the level I need it to be run at it will surely introduce some grit. Plus, I really need some tonal control.

I really dislike his build quality, and again - no tone control.

Really?.. Wow, I thought the Beano was a straight Treble Booster... Hmmmm, I will have to e-mail Mike about that... How much treble is reduced in the "deep" mode?..

thanks,

Actually... My "D" key sticks... But enough of that.

I am currently thinking about the Toadworks Meat, or a Hellbilly - does anyone know if the Hellbilly can do 100% clean stuff with the gain @ zero?.

Nope, not 100% clean. If you want fat and dark, with a tone control, the two best choices (IMO, of course) are the Fireman FX Baron Boost or the HAO Rust Booster. Either would work.

Too much for what I want... I just want a simple dark boost - not a DI and various other options... But thanks man.

The Baron dosn't sound like it would fit the cake, and the HAo has no tone control!!! :p

But, I was hoping to find somthing from you Brad... So if you can think of anything let me know, as I prefer to buy from you when it comes from the states...

cheers

What about a BJF berry, or a Sea Blue EQ?


or some other kind of EQ pedal, I think Boss has a digital EQ pedal for around 130 bucks.

There's also someone on the net that builds a "sniper" Boss EQ
seems like that could give you the volume you seek and the tone you desire.

It's been a while since I've used the Rust Booster. Guess I forgot what the other knob was for. :)

I still think the Baron might suprise you.
