clvn021's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" For a true bass overdrive sound!"

Xotic Effects Bass BB Preamp
What are the effects or types of effects available?

- Boost overdrive distortion


The general configuration is it simple?

- 4 knobs: Gain / Volume / Treble / Bass (most)

Editing sounds is easy?

- Yes, with four knobs are easy to find happiness.
Review (turn from mini to maxi) buttons on the pedal
you hear clearly what is happening.
The sound you seek is at your fingertips.

- The middle position (12:00) the race of treble and bass knobs leaves
original sound.


The effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?

- Clearly! The sound that this pedal delivers is simply divine!
Setting up a thick overdrive, get serious in the definition
is clear, an attack "almost" the same and yet your bass
sounds squat while remaining visible!

- The same goes for a more "light" for a clean scent for a solo
or to put the right amount of boost to give your bass sound more
while retaining crisp.

With what the instruments do you use?

- Fender Precision Bass American Standard
Fender Bassman 100


How long have you use it?

- It's been a month since I possess and use the first
we feel an attachment that is done, it sounds and that's it!

Since cook a dish from her mother or her grandmother's good
and there is nothing to add!

Have you tried many other models before buying it?

- I've had three (communist pig / boss bass OD / EHX Hot Tube) before
that and I think I found the irreplaceable!

What is so special that you like most and least?

- The best: its possibilities (boost / OD / Disto)

- The least: its price and available to the AC outlet
OUT on the side.

How would you rate the quality / price?

- The finish is exemplary,
the aspect of "Unbreakable"
painting is "anchored" on the case,
LED turns on and off with a slight increase,
the knobs have a nice sensitivity and reliability.

However, these finishes have a cost, which can be a barrier for some.

With experience, you do again this choice?

- YES! For it is in my opinion a "must-have" for bass, this pedal!

Xotic Effects Bass BB Preamp
Distortion pedal / preamp, True Bypass, 4 knobs: Gain / Volume / Treble / Bass, Case indestructible metal (for the 4 against anti-slip pads pedal sounds themselves off fast enough, the detail is minimal but the price the craft is still painful)


Nothing too complicated ...


I use it with a Jazz bass to add a very slight distortion and give a little more character to my sound. And I just found that the grain of this distortion is rather typical. I play bass amps on different functions of rehearsal studios I frequent, and every time I come to find "my sound" when I turn the volume pot of barely winning.

It does not cause loss in the low frequencies and relatively well preserved attack

I have rarely in the utility but I love the sound when I push the gain to get a true distortion on my bass is fat enough but it's still pretty accurate.

The 2 knobs for EQ are not there for decoration and are handy for adjusting the sound.

Which is a shame is that there have not a knob that allows her to mix clean / distorted sound. Few offer the pedals so I find it a useful, especially on a bass.


I use it for a year, and when I play without (which is very rare), I find that my sound is bland.

I tried a bunch of distortion before finding this one and none satisfied me. Then when I tested it, I immediately recognized the sound I was looking only at a price that's significant since about 210 € (!!), ok it's good bill but it remains a distortion pedal, so this seems a bit excessive price ... So, despite the "blow of heart" I took a time of reflection and tried again the other more affordable models before finally buying it.
A year later I am still very pleased with this acquisition, my bass sound is much more interesting than before, it's expensive but high quality material with a particular color. I probably would do that choice.
