Can anyone help me out here? I have a Digitech Death Metal pedal, but I'm a bassist. It totally sucks the tone out of my bass, and takes away almost all of the low end. Is there anything I could do to this pedal to make it a great bass distortion stompbox? I love the amount of distortion this thing has.

turning it off makes it sound better
Yeah Dimebag is not the "Greatest Guitarist" of all time... Hendrix maybe... I must go get food to eat with my mouth

$250 for an amp? wow. is it worth it to invest that much in the amp?

really?


Trade it in and buy a bass distortion (aren't bass distortions a lot cheaper?)

yea man you really can't get the same amount of distortion on a bass as a guitar, and using a guitar pedal won't help you get distortion on a bass. get a bass overdrive pedal or a bass distortion

The bass NEEDS to have a bit of definition, and therefore less distortion, so that the notes don't run together in a flurry of diahrea sound. I'd consider maybe a RAT, the Turbo RAT can get super distorted and remain crystal clear. I got mine for $10 American at a garage sale \m/

I already have good bass distortion, I was just looking for something to do, really. I was wondering if there was any way to mess with certain parts inside the pedal, just so I could get some experience with it before I mod any other pedals. I guess I should've put that in my first post, and anyone who helped, thanks!
