I rarely post comments about anything positive or negative for that matter concerning products or services. However, in this instance I will make an exception. I was thinking about buying an Ampeg Amp but couldn't bare to part with my Fender Bassman, neither could I justify having two bass amps. So I bought this pedal after seeing so many great reviews....... all I can say is see the title to this review. Using the pedal as a DI into protools sounds amazing, clear, punchy, the lows are there, the scrambler really adds that Ampeg tube sounding crunch. Using it as a pedal through the Bassman.... well it's even more impressive..... I love my Bassman and am always complimented by others on how good it sounds, however using this pedal elevates the sound so much that I can't think of using the amp without the pedal.. the best $269 I have spent in a long time......

I was looking for a way to shape my tone because I was growing tired of my amp. I purchased this from L&M and instantly fell in love. It gave my tone the growl I was looking for. And better yet, when I'm on the road, if I have to use someone else's bass rig, I can instantly dial in MY tone. Many bass players have told me their amp never sounded so good! Ha! 4.5 is for the fairly useless Scrambler; it cuts tone and volume. But if you don't need distortion or you have a good secondary distortion pedal, you'll be fine.

I picked up a used one from Long & McQuade about a year ago - to echo the other reviews: it's super sturdy, feels and sounds great. I've gigged with it multiple times and the tone shaping is excellent - I'm able to go from vintage mid-heavy honky/farty sounds to scooped out slap tones no problem. The scrambler circuit is okay at best, I use it as an almost-always-on feature to get a slight grit to my tone but not much else. It can thin things out pretty quickly. There is a -15db pad jumper INSIDE the pedal that can be adjusted for active basses/hotter output pickups, though it would've been nice to have this accessible without taking the back off. I've been told by more than one sound guy that my signal was quite hot, and I couldn't do much about it (even though I use a passive bass). tl;dr - great tone shaping, okay overdrive circuit, well built.

I have owned this product for about a year and I've gigged with it multiple times. The physical quality is amazing, extremely durable. The only reason I didn't give this thing a 5/5 rating was the scrambler effect. I personally find it next to useless and I am playing in a metal band... I like how it sounds on its own, but in the mix it drops all the low end and you lose you're bass line among the other instruments. Maybe a driver/ volume pedal would fix this? The fact that I can drop a 9v battery in there and just plug some headphones to play on the go is amazing! Final verdict is... WORTH ITTTTTT

I got my new schecter beast of a bass, it was soo powerful and sounded untamed. This Di helped me mold the sound into exactly what I wanted. The housing is really solid, could hurl it at a wall and the wall will break before it! Literally the only draw back is, that I wish it had a volume pedal. That would help. But that is literally the only complaint I have which I can easily work around. The fact that i can strap a 9/12volt battery in there and plug my headphones in. The fact that i can play it on the go is hugee! And the sound quality of the AUX out is crisp and clean. If you are on the fence about this product... GET IT!
