The FACTOTUM Bass Suboctave Drive pedal is the first from the much anticipated line of Red Witch Bass Guitar effects and it has been a long time coming! The Red Witch Facotum features two separate effects in one glorious chrome package; the ridiculous might and sub-thumping punch of 100% analog suboctave and the ultra-switchable grit of 100% analog bass overdrive.
Each effect has its own true bypass stomp switch, so use them either of them independently or both simultaneously. You can dial as little or a much of each effect as you like with the two mix controls.
The Factotum's overdrive section was based on collaboration between Red Witch founder and designer Ben Fulton and Faith No More's bass player, Billy Gould. Billy contacted Ben to discuss his desire for an overdrive that would add grit and bite to his sound, all while getting more aggressive as the player "dug" into the strings.
Billy was also specific about wanting to offer the blend option - allowing the player to choose between the clean, unaffected sound and the overdriven sound. The best facets of this design are centered around the additional independent analog suboctave circuit. All in all, the Red Witch Factoctum Bass Suboctave is a deliciously gritty, thunderous device guaranteed to anchor any bass players tone to the lowest end of the frequency spectrum.
