    That looks like fun

    Gain structures FTW!

    The supped up 250 is the biggest selling point for me.

    Thoughts on the Way Huge Pork & Pickle Smalls.

     

    Out of the box, I didn’t dig it.

    Knowing it had internal trim pots for fine tuning the overall voice, I dug in.

    Now, it fits my needs far better.

    It’s a nice flavour of dirt to have among my Damnation Audio MBD-1 and Darkglass B3K V2.

    Anybody have experience with a Master Effect 300 which is the current SVT darling on TB? I trust and have talked to John K on that board and usually agree with his statements. Plus he’s a helluva nice guy and super talented. Here is his comment: i just received a Master Effects Super 300 today and IMO, it’s the closest sounding pedal to an actual SVT that i’ve ever owned (and i’ve owned 15 SVTs with no SVT CLs).   $300 delivered Here’s the post: https://www.talkbass.com/threads/the-pedals-for-the-svt-sound.1485804/page-3

    https://mastereffects.wixsite.com/mastereffects/buy-now-bass      I don’t really need a new pedal and wasn’t looking for one but thinking I might want a keepsake around to help remember the shit show that is sure to be our future tomorrow…

    Fingers slipped again.

    Another pedal on its way.

    This time, it’s an “exclusive” version.

    Yes.

    With great ease.

    The MBD-1/2 circuit is very transparent to my ears.

    You can twist and turn knobs to “color” your sound, in a similar way you can on your amp. But your core tone is always there. You can thicken it up, thin it out, warm it up, or make it as cutting as possible.

    Even without the brilliant clean blend, it still retains a solid low-end.

    The touch-sensitivity of the dirt/grit is excellent.

    I can’t say that I’ve tried a ton of pedals, but it is the one that gets the sound in my head, and gets it out of my amp.

    Nice! The MBD retains if not enhances low end. I still dig minea lot. Good to see he is using a smaller enclosure now and doubling down on the swag.

    Making friends wherever I go!    I’ve enjoyed the compressor thread on TB with Scubba and also loved what Cyrus had done years ago.   But the current thread and its’ derivatives has just gotten out of hand. The idea that one brand of compressor is significantly going to change ones playing is pure BS. We didn’t used to have compressors and people played great. You either can play or you can’t IMO.

    “The 166 is no where near as nice as a 160 as I have one of those and a dbx 163.
    Have A/B’d the 160 with the Keeley, FEA-DECL, Duncan, and Death Ray.
    They are not all that close IMO.
    It’s the simplicity of the 160 at 4:1 as it just makes great decisions for a player.

    Usually used a Urei 1176 back in my studio days but sometimes liked the 160 better. Depended on the player and the track.
    But honestly, in a busy rock band mix, the difference is miniscule and I’ll bet big money you can’t tell the difference in a double blind test in a live setting.

    Same with most of these high end compressors. It wasn’t that long ago that a quality pedal did not exist and player’s still sounded great. None of this is magic; you can either play or you can’t. These boxes help even out dynamics and the “tone magic” can often be duplicated with EQ or a different pre amp.

    Still a rack mount but some of the Behringer’s get close. I just set it for auto mode if I’m trying to get the 160 sound. Many say that the 160 was copied by them but let’s not get into that please.”
