You know what the world needs more of? Bass pedals. I haven’t actually counted or anything, but I have been working around pedals for some time now and I’m going to hazard a guess that there are way more guitar pedals then there are bass pedals. I’m talking bass specific pedals here folks. Or Basspecifc for short. I understand all the holes are the same and that there’s nothing holding those with 4 from plugging in and letting loose, but frequency matters and not every pedal can bring out what we love best about the guitar’s more baritone cousin.
Boss understands exactly what I’m talking about and that is why they’ve decided to deliver the Boss BB-1X Bass Driver. Let’s here it directly from them first: “Incorporating BOSS’ latest MDP technology, the BB-1X delivers a wide range of superior sounds, from natural clean tones to heavy distortion. It adapts and responds to any playing style or register, but never loses the body and core tone of your instrument. The BB-1X’s natural-sounding distortion preserves the high definition and dynamics reflected in the finest details of your sound.”
In case your wondering, MDP stands for multi-dimensional processing. I searched around the internet trying to see if I could figure out exactly what that was and all I could come up with is that it processes your sound in multiple dimensions. I don’t know about you, but that sounds awesome and kind of Dr. Who-ish!
