The pedal is the alternative for bass players. This pedal is designed for the use of bass frequencies. If match this against the guitar version or the Boss GE-7 then you see a lot of the same sliders but with different numbers above each. The bands have center frequencies at 62Hz, 125Hz, 250Hz, 500Hz, 1kHz, 2kHz and 4Khz. Just like its brother the Boss Ge-7, this pedal will decrease or increase 15 db of volume to your overall bass guitar.

SOUND QUALITY

This pedal works great for bass guitar just like the Boss Ge-7 works great for the electric guitar. It boosts the right amount of frequencies and gives the added volume for driving your bass amp a little more. You can definitely get a good boost and a little bit of overdrive to you bass tone if desired. This is great for recording or playing live where a clean bass tone is dull and boring.

This pedal works for any amp and any guitar. It is nice addition to a bass player who has found his or her tone and needs to take it a step further. This pedal will make jumping that next hurdle in your tone. Some older bass amps don't get too dirty in the overdrive section. This will allow you to get a little bit of dirt on your tone so that you can drive the rhythm section a little better than before.

OVERALL OPINION

These pedals were discontinued back in 1995. You can find them on the used market but there are newer pedals that work just as good.If you use a bass amp that has a the right tone but you are lacking in certain frequencies then this is a great pedal to have
