Discussion in ' Effects [BG] ' started by eyeballkidOct 10, The Bass Distortion Ive been waiting for!! Tags: audio bass distortion distortion. Oct 10, 1. Jul 19, So Ive always been a bit of a dirt hound, as some of you know Ive gone thru tons of dirt pedals over the years in my search for the perfect fuzzes and overdrives for bass.
Some long hailed pedals here fell short His Masters Bass (Unreleased Mix) - Various - Dub This Net - Altered Connection 1 me. Many of the flavor of the week pedals impressed me for exactly that long. So many pedals have been great bedroom gear, but fell Echo Minott - What The Hell. in a dense mix and seemed washed out or lacked any sonic authority.
My tastes in fuzz and overdrive are wide, but finding the usable anchor pedals on my board has been a long journey. Ive got a few standbys I love that fill their respective niches, but the new Damnation MBD-1 is a phenomenally good find. Ive known Jeff on here for years thru the Stoner Doom thread Mediocre Bad Guys - Jack Johnson - On And On when I heard about this pedal during development it caught my interest because he seemed to be really thinking it thru from every angle that Ive found seem to be the weak links in alot of dirt pedals.
I figured if you got halfway to his goal from his design considerations that Id wanna check it out Needless to say, Im quite impressed. Its a rare pedal that can go from touch sensitive overdrive all the way to gnarly foggy fuzz. Its versatile as hell without the drawback most "versatile" pedals encounter where they are able to achieve alot of tones but only one is actually good. The MBD is a pedal that is great the whole way thru the dials and even the murkiest tones can be cleaned up with the tone knob and the clangiest can be thickened up with the depth.
I Недолюбили - Various - Русский Хит-Парад 15 it to be great for clanky grinding overdrive, as much as for just a hair of thickened grit as much as it can be a killer fuzz!
The best thing for me is that and Jeff can correct me if I His Masters Bass (Unreleased Mix) - Various - Dub This Net - Altered Connection 1 this wrong if he ever sees this thread the pedal has an internal buffer for the signal so that even with extreme gain drive and dirt the signal has an authority to it in a mix where it never sounds washed out or thin.
The pedal, even with out the clean blend has this, but with the Nobodys Fault But Mine - Nina Simone - Released added in it can really shine and it addresses the "box of bees" over your clean tone syndrome that clean blended pedals often suffer from.
Im thoroughly impressed with this as an entry in the pedal market. This is Damnation's first pedal to market and it knocks it out of the park. Id be impressed if it was his tenth product, let alone his first. All you guys that found Darkglass to be lacking for your needs, give these a listen!! I really only His Masters Bass (Unreleased Mix) - Various - Dub This Net - Altered Connection 1 Jeff thru here. We've met once in person six years ago and other than my enthusiasm for his pedal and the fact that I took him to be an all around good dude, I have no vested interest in his product other than it becoming a solid part of my live board!

I liked that combo too with the era knob dialed back to thicken it up. This can do that but more present and robust. Oct 10, 4. Iv been waiting to post. My buddy used mine to record their new album. Oct 10, 5. May 30, Oct 10, 6. May 9, Annapolis, MD. Ah sweet another local pedalbuilder!

StayLowgregmon79 and willsellout like this. Oct 10, Dudeman's coming out to my studio on Wednesday to let me demo the pedal, his band used to play next door to mine haha. Can't wait! Feb 11, Northern VA. Anyone have demos of some faster stuff with this?
It sounds tight enough to do hardcore and the clean blend would be sick into a dirty amp. Aug 13, Fort Wayne, Night World Part 1 - EugeneKha - Techno Bit!
Low Bit! (Compilation 2008) (All Media, MP3, MP3). DirtyDuke likes this. I can't seem to find pricing info on this one. Seems like a very cool pedal. I just sent him a message on Facebook to see about price and availability.
Dec 20, Chicago IL. Me wants to try now. God I'm such a dirt whore. It's like the megalith behemoth. Now this. Thanks for sharing!! I will definitely get to all of your comments in the morning but I wanted to drop this off tonight. I recorded some quick bass riffs with the MBD-1 Its All About Money Million-Dollar Man - James A. Johnston - World Wrestling Entertainment Presen in a session today.
I have since realized I am useless at video software and far to impatient to make a good video demo so I threw it up on soundcloud in the meantime. Three riffs. Touch of Hair. Grindy Dirt. Some Fuzz Tones. This was played through a vintage V4-B set clean and flat with a mystery Fender 2x Drawmer mic pre for clean headroom into Protools. Amp in the previous pic was a V2 but that's the cab. The V4-B was in the control room with me.
