  1. At the weekend I tried out the Moog MF Chorus, the Earthquaker Sea Machine 2 and the Nemphasis Bass Chorus.
    The Moog was my least favourite, as it seemed to get too goofy/weird too quickly. The other two sounded great, very usable, but a bit more expensive.

    Anyone else have any suggestions for good chorus pedals?

    EDIT: I ended up going for the MXR Analog Chorus, very versatile and sounds great, the Sea Machine however is still my favourite sounding.


  2. So I was looking into the differences between the GEB-7 and the GE-7B, and obviously the frequencies available are the main difference.

    I plan to get an EQ pedal to use after my Rat/Big Muff (as I've said in other topics) to reduce some of the high end/boost low end and I was wondering which of these two pedals would be best suited?

    I've looked into the Boss PQ-3B as well but they seem quite hard to get hold of and I've heard they are less versatile than a graphic EQ
    Thanks!


  3. I've been looking at the old Boss PQ-3B to have after my dirty section to scoop out some harshness from my Rat and Big Muff, I hear they're really good, better than say the GEB-7 or graphic EQs on the whole.
    But I've also been looking at preamp pedals and was wondering if what the major differences are between a preamp pedal and a parametric EQ? Or which people prefer for this application (or similar)?

    Thanks!


  4. Hey!

    I've had a Boss ODB-3 for ages but rarely use it as I snapped the volume knob off a while back, i can still turn it with a screwdriver... but that's not ideal.
    So I'm looking to repair it properly myself, I still have the plastic cap of the control.
    I've done a bit of research but thought I'd also ask here.

    Will it be hard to replace the pot? Or should I just take it somewhere to get fixed?

    Thanks

    EQing back in freq.s that have been taken out is hard. Id suggest either look at using a loop pedal with a blend, or getting it MODed to let more low end threw (though youd have to find someone else to help there).

    Yeah, I was thinking it would perhaps not sound quite the same. I did ask yesterday about where/who can do bass-boosting type mods on drive type pedals but didn't get an answer :(


  6. So I recently bought a 1980 Little Big Muff, it sounds good with bass but I feel like in a live setting it could do with a bit more low end.
    I also really want to get a Rat but I've heard people having similar issues.

    I've never used an EQ pedal with bass before, anyone have any suggestions for which ones are good for this kind of thing?
    And also would they be better before or after any dirty pedals (I'd assume before, but I see a lot of people use after.)

    Thanks!

    The simplest bass mod for increased low end response on a RAT just needs a pair of wire cutters. Give this a go:

    You can cut either end of the resistor indicated by the photos in this article; the outcome is the same.

    ;)

    I'll have a look, thanks


  8. Hi there,

    First post, so apologies if this is in the wrong section or anything.

    I'm looking to buy my friend's Pro Co Rat (it's a II i believe), a lot of demos I've heard suggest it'll produce the tone I'm looking for, as a dirtier alternative to my Way Huge Pork Loin which I have as a gentler drive.

    However I hear Rats can suck a lot of low end from your tone..

    I've read a few people on old forums say they've gotten theirs modded to keep more low end.
    Was wondering if anyone knew anyone/a place that can perhaps do a mod like this for me? How much would it cost etc.?
    I'm based in Luton (30miles from London)

    Cheers!
