Roger Mayer / Voodoo-Bass / 2012 / Effect Pedal
The VOODOO-BASS is so named because it adds gutsier bass equalisation to the already popular VOODOO distortion sound, enabling guitarist using instuments with only single coil pickups to reproduce quite effortlessly the round, bluesy sound of classic humbuckers or the Gibson P90.
The comprehensive gain and EQ provided by the VOODOO-BASS actually enables a very wide range of distortion sounds to be created with any instument, from the compressed, just clipped sustain of traditional Chicago Blues to the sweet scream of full tube overload. Also the unit should find favour with the increasing number of bass players rediscovering the joys of adding both compression and distortion to their sound.
Electronically the Voodoo-Bass share all the same features but the equalisation sections have been altered to provide a completely different set of tones.
" Sonically, the Voodoo-Bass is similar to that original Voodoo-1 pedal (as in Jimi´s "Voodoo Chile"), giving anything from a slight natural crunch to a smooth powerful distortion. At maximum gain it makes a medium-sized combo sound like something about four times bigger, but without the over-compressed wall of noice associated with most stomp boxes. In fact it allows for very dynamic playing chug a chord from soft-and-damped to loud-and-ringing and the pedal goes with you - from quiet and relatively clean to over-the-edge grunge. Alternatively, simply control your overall volume ( and hence amount of distortion ) from your guitar´s volume knob. The Voodoo-Bass is designed to give a single coil pickup a gutsier tone, more like that of a classic humbucker. It definitely gets into same ball park... the low middle stays thick and constant no matter how the tone is set, and it´s this region that has the humbucker character - a really handy approximation for someone wanting a change of sound at the press of a button." " The Voodoo-Bass sounds refreshingly unboxy, and with most types of amps it does the job really professionally."
Making Music Dec / -96
"The voodoo-Bass is an analogue fuzz box that adds thickness to any bass-and at higher gain settings, the Voodoo-Bass simulates the tube-like sag of a full-blast vintage amp.
