I just need to sort out a Muse/Hysteria sound, has anyone tried the EHX Nano Metal Muff or the Tonefactor Huckleberry? I think Steve (TaySte_2000) has one? It looks like we all like the Korg DT10!

Yup! That's right. I made a soundclip of Hysteria doing just that:
Hysteria

The stop in the middle is where I change the Boost knob on the Hellbaby...I can't remember if I turn it down or up though, I think I turn it down.

What are you looking for in your delay?

long times? pristine repeats? dirty degradation of repeats?

I want a kind of Delay/Sustain effect which the Big Muff produces.

You don't want a delay pedal then, you want a sustainer :)

You can get a P+C cheaper direct from Paul Crowther in NZ... if you can track him down!

There's the pigtronix reissue of the EHX attack/sustain. That'll be alot of money tho. If you just want something to giv eyou tonnes of fuzzy sustain like a big muff - why not use a big muff? Just an idea.

I must admit I was thinking about it. The size of the bugger puts me off though. I would like a go on a Nano Metal Muff though to see if it will do the job. Thanks for your help.

What about the "little big muff" ?

If you can get hold of one it would be worth trying the "TC Electronic Sustainer/Distortion/Parametric EQ"

This is my present board. Changes pretty often though. Love it to bits. Can get really really filthy and can make some very weird noises too.


Haha I remember that board..You're the bassist for Rose Kemp aren't you!?

here's mine, still very much work in progress, I'll probably get rid of the FT-2 when I get to grips with the G5, and I fancy building a tube OD/distortion to replace the MXR bassDI. I'll have to finish this first. The row of jack sockets is for eight true bypass loops, which will be controlled by eight footswitches on the bottom row. I'll be able to switch different groups of pedals on and off with one footswitch,... eventually!

Hehe yea I remember. I had drunk loads of whiskey that night so it's all a bity hazy.
For the heavy tones that could be described as synthy I use the Marshall Guvnor, EQ, PS-5 set an octave down and the Alesis Bitrman. The silver box centre front is a double fx loop (left channel distortion, octave, eq etc and the right channel modulation and stuff) and the one to the left is another loop with a volume for the Bitrman as it isn't designed to be used as a pedal.

J.

Thanks Joe! I'm waiting for a ToneFreak Abunai2. It's a guitar overdrive based on the TS808 circuit but with more gain and a wider frequency response. Been after a decent 808 style pedal for a while so I'm gonna give this one a bash to see how it holds out :huh: Just waiting for ToneFreak to finish up the next batch and for ToneFactor to get them in stock... and then international shipping ARGH!!!!

... probably about a month's wait :)

My tonefactor stuff has been coming in around 8 working days recently. Hopefully not as long as you're thinking!

Let me know how the Abunai sounds :huh:

Will do mate :)

I'll record clips of all my pedals when the board's done :huh:

I tried this idea before at a gig and it was amazing, but I ran my voodoobass with low gain and high output into a Boss Bluesdriver with lowgain and medium output into an already clipping valve preamp. That setup seemed to click perfectly, I can honestly say it was the best bass overdrive I've ever used, but I found the bluesdriver a bit fizzy so I've been after something more 808 based with more gain and bass :huh:

I'll post clips of THAT sound if I can achieve it with the Abunai ^_^
