New Maxon BD10 Hybrid Bass Driver
Maxon introduces the BD10 Hybrid Bass Driver, a new overdrive pedal designed primarily for bass.
The Maxon BD10 Hybrid Bass Driver was designed in collaboration with Japanese bassist Masaki (Gus G, John Petrucci) and is based on the famous Maxon 808 circuit. It includes a symmetrical clipping circuit that allows, according to the manufacturer, for generating a fat and articulated distortion. Bassists can use it to get very diverse effects, wether they need a little punch to their signal or extreme saturation and everything in between.
The pedal features a +6dB boost for the clean signal, another 14dB boost for the overdriven signal, a distortion amount control and a 2-band EQ. A buffered bypass is footswitchable.
Maxon adds that tough it’s primarily design for bass, the BD10 Hybrid Bass Driver is also suitable for guitar.
US price is $169, more info at www.maxonfx.com.
