Thanks to Kevin Robinson (Viva Voce on Barsuk Records) for this quick demo of the Bass Blogger. The Bass Blogger offers switchable overdrive and fuzz modes, and is optimized for a lighter, more subtle fuzz (as compared to the Bass Big Muff Pi). For an even smoother bass distortion, see our Bass Metaphors DI/preamp.

Kevin adds: "I like to have as many options of distortion as possible. The Bass Big Muff is such an identifiable sound that it's really nice to add a little subtle grit to the equation. The Blogger does this nicely. In the 'drive' setting, I can push my clean tone up a bit to the edge, then launch it through the roof without having to make extreme jumps."

"At any point on tour I have two (sometimes three) distortion pedals in the chain. 'Die A Little' off our new record was recorded with 18 guitar tracks, and eventually double tracking a distorted bass. Live all I do is turn the Blogger on the fuzz setting with the tone rolled completely off (7 o'clock) and the drive all the way up (5 o'clock). Nails it!"

"If ever there was a brand name linked to the type music we make and completely encapsulate the aesthetic of how good it feels to hold a squealing guitar, it would be Electro-Harmonix. In fact the VERY first pedal I ever bought was a Big Muff Pi."

If you're in the Portland, Oregon area tonight (May 19) go stop in on Viva Voce's video premiere/release party for their new album "Rose City."

In addition to his Bass Blogger, Kevin will also be touring with his Bass Big Muff Pi, Stereo Clone Theory, and Deluxe Memory Man (see pedalboard).
