Blow Torch Distortion
M181

Ranges from tube-like growl to high-gain distortion.
Overdrive is strongest in the midrange, retaining low-and high-end frequencies.
Active 3-band EQ with 3-position mid shift.

Blow Torch Distortion Info
By focusing the overdrive in the midrange frequencies, the Bass Blow Torch lets you retain low end thunder and high-end sizzle while distorted mids blaze a path through even the densest mix. An active 3-band EQ with 3-position mid shift lets you zero in on an incendiary tone, while the Blend knob lets you balance your distortion with direct signal to taste. And the Bass Blow Torch burns as clean as it does hot, with 18 volt performance for increased dynamic headroom, clarity and low noise even at lethal volume. True hardwire bypass circuitry means that when you switch the distortion out, it's really gone.

Power: Dunlop ECB004 AC Adapter or Two 9 volt batteries

I am not in any band or play abroad. Yet I saw this and picked it up. I'm completely impressed at what it can do. Some days I just plug it in and play around which is fun. This is a very good petal for someone who never owned one before.

This pedal is amazing, from grumbling tube growl to crunchy distortion or classic fuzz this does it all. Those who have given it bad reviews need to learn how to shape their sound. The built in smart gate works perfectly, sustains as long as you want to hold, it has a very good on board EQ, no tone loss what so ever. I've been using it through a SWR 10 combo, the growl and OD give it the feel of a 4x10 Cab. This pedal is a must have for bassists.
