Mad Professor / Blueberry Bass Overdrive / 2010's / Effect Pedal For Sale
BLUEBERRY BASS OVERDRIVE
BJF design dynamic bass overdrive.Mad Professor BlueBerry Bass Overdrive (BBBOD) is a high quality dynamic overdrive pedal for electric bass. It was designed to get light to medium overdrive, reminiscent of vintage tube bass amplifiers. With the Drive control, you can get natural dynamically controlled overdrive like on those old tube bass amplifiers, or more compressed thick distortion. At lower drive settings the BBBOD distorts more the harder you strike the strings, and there is no definite clipping point, but rather different shades of distortion as the amplitude changes. Higher settings will give more compressed sounds. With the clever Nature adjustment one can adjust the tone, and also control what register distorts. From really big and fat with low register distortion to cutting upper midrage solo bass tone. There is enough volume to use the pedal also as a booster. While mainly designed for bass guitar, the BBBO can also be used with other instruments for low, dynamically controlled distortion. Controls: VOLUME : controls outputDRIVE: sets the amount of distortion and sustain, as well as the type of distortion. Lower settings give dynamically controlled overdrive, the unit distorts more the harder you strike the strings and there is no definite clipping point, but rather different shades of distortion as the amplitude changes. Higher settings will give more compressed sounds. A good starting point with most basses is fully CCW, turn the knob until you find the overdrive level that suits your playing. Lower settings are good for old school tube amplifier tone, while higher settings gives denser distortion. NATURE: is a tonecontrol for filtering and to control what register distorts. Turning CCW gives more lowend and also distortion in the lower registers. Turning CW gives an emphasis in the upper midrange for more protruding solo bass tone.

Harri Koski: Guitarist, marketing, cordinating the production, helping hand.
Harri has been playing guitar since mid 70´s and his serious hobby turned into a business when he started Custom-Sounds (www.custom-sounds.com) in 1996. Custom-Sounds was a high-end guitar gear company from the beginning and it was one of the first “boutique" guitar shops on internet. His co-operation with Bjorn Juhl started the BJF pedals business and soon these two soul brothers were talking about the ultimate amplifier. Bjorn Juhl and Harri had the mad idea about designing the ultimate guitar tube amplifier and to make it right here in Scandinavia. Bjorn put on his propel-hat and Harri put all his energy and money into this project. Soon we found the right people to work with us and the world got a brand new amplifier that was not a clone of any vintage amp as these modern hand-wired amps often are. Harri has a collection of various Gibson guitars and early JV Squier Fenders and plugs these into his serial no: 000 Mad Professor prototype head that is played loud almost every day.
