Overdrive for bass

Very sensitive to the touch, the Smoking Bass overdrive for bass maintains the natural tone of the instrument either used to deliver a lightly saturated harmonic sound of delightful valve taste or for a more extreme distortion.

The Smoking Bass will always be dynamic, musical, transparent and a definition on low frequencies which are out of the ordinary.
