This is one great bass pedal that's also cool for guitar (Tube Works - Blue Tube Bass Driver)

By Jim Wright, 22/04/2017
These sound really nice with lower powered tubes such as the 12AT7 or 12AU7, et. Adds a nice quality to my Ampeg Micro VR stack, but I even use it for killer crunch into my Portaflex T50. Lots of musical greats used these pedals, nuf said. Get it if you can find one. I just bought the plain Blue Tube version to add some variety in tone. I'll put an AT tube in one and an AU in the other.

Fuzz with multiple personalities (Darkglass Electronics - Duality)

By bouns83, 25/11/2014
Finnish manufacturing fuzz pedal. Finish on top, it exudes strength.
1 knob blend to mix his clear and full. 1 knob level to adjust the sound level of the saturated signal. 1 knob duality to gradually move from its old fuzz to sound aggressive and acid fuzz. 1 knob filter for enriching or impoverishing the sound treble harmonics.


Configuration is very simple, you have to spend some time to find the sound that suits their needs, the action of the knobs is precise, and the possibilities of many sounds. But once you joined the duality knob in the counterclockwise it is the vintage side, in clockwise is the modern side, we already have a track.


This fuzz is very versatile, in any case gives a very good son.Le grain can be gentle or aggressive, acidic, creamy or sharp. It can range from mild to very dirty saturation fuzz. You can choose between a "natural" light saturation effect genre crunch and a very synthetic sound (essain kind of very angry hornets), especially thanks to the blend knob which preserves the sound of the bass or sets back from the effect . Duality fits this schizophrenic personality into a more fuzz is the successful darkglass bet.


Used only a few days, she passed the test live, by logging the mix. Nothing to do with the mxr was a little too wise and who tended to be eaten. Here we are in the presence of bad fuzz (in the manner of a Mazzette for the aggressive side), which will prove much higher if needed. It is not cheap, but given the sound quality and versatility, it is enough to calm the purchase craving effects in a while (like the rest of the products darkglass matter!).

The top. (Fender - Sub-Lime Bass Fuzz Pedal)

By calourock, 11/10/2014
A BIG beautiful pedal that exudes tough for manufacturing.


It is easy to adjust once you dip in what was the settings above, below and on the sides. But I did not notice so nothing insurmountable. The settings below allow to keep the lower part of the sound spectrum and clear up with the fuzz.


This fuzz is amazing, you can go from light overdrive to fat saturation.
Whatever style of music that sticks. For every bass player.


I tested a bunch of pedal drive-distortion-fuzz and sub-lime is clearly over. For 2 years she never left me
