Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
It's a stomp box. Nice bypass switch.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
I play a 5-string bass and use fuzz sounds at times. Despite the wonderful sounds James Gurley got on the "Janis Joplin Live At Winterland '68" album & others from his "Jordan Electronics Bosstone" fuzz (which this one emulates), my bass sounded very lame through this stomp box, very little fuzz, very little effect from the bandpass filter regardless of settings and worst, it robbed me of a couple of octaves of low frequencies. A tech at Voodoo Labs confirmed that this pedal is not voiced for bass guitars. So bass players, avoid this, stay with your vintage Big Muffs.
How did the stain or paint job look?
It was beautiful but it's a stomp box. Wonderful build quality however.
How was the action out of the box?
It's a stomp box. Sturdy bypass switch...
