Bass Boost

"It's all about the bass"

 

 

The Bass Boost rack effect module compares to the EHX Hog's Foot and Mole pedals.  Simple and crude, it chops out everything except low bass and then boosts what's left.

 

Description

The Bass Boost is a simple circuit.  It chops out most of the harmonics and upper base register and boosts the low end.  When it is time to get low and shake the walls, just switch it on.

 

Configuration

  • Bass Boost - Compares to EHX Hog's Foot and EHX Mole

 

Buffers

No buffers

 

Options

  • Custom Transistor - Comes standard with a 2N5089 high-gain, low noise modern transistor.  These are good transistors used in several GT effects, but you can choose another.
  • Components - We use metal film resistors and a selection of capacitors that provide good tone and low noise
