Not just for bass

18.08.2016
Bass players, the Carl Martin BassDrive is probably no longer tasty. According to the ratings, some estimate the qualities of this part. But the keyboardists among us, I can only recommend a test. There are only a few devices (Overdrive), which have been developed for organ / keyboard and the more it makes sense to look over one's own. The Bodentreter, which I could at the 'guitar fraction' could not convince me of the Zerrcharakter - too little in the depths, too shrill - for guitars just, is synonymous ok. Orgendrive and Co sound different, only in the price they are a bit 'uncomfortable'. In the bass section, I found the Carl Martin BassDrive. The organ sounds over the part really good and bold, the degree of distortion can be well dosed. The device is high-quality processed, easy to use, also has the power supply installed (!) And sounds great. Even the look at the prize gives no reason for criticism. What more could you want?

SUPER PREAMP OVERDRIVE

Julien469, 10.04.2014
The BassDrive is an excellent preamp / overdrive.

The settings are simple ... one can finely saturate the sound, get closer to Geezern Butler even see himself as Lemmy and invoke the gods of lightning without fear ... The room for maneuver is great ...

For my part I changed the tube ... I preferred an ECC81 ... a little lighter than the original lamp in terms of saturation ... but more subtle in sound ... History of taste ...
To travel light I took a small Ampeg Portaflex 350 ... Good amp in the absolute ... but with this preamp in front ... it is transformed ...

I especially appreciated the fact that compared to many other pedals one does not lose serious when it is switched on ...
I also liked the grain of saturation that sounds very natural ...
In addition it is fed directly with a basic power cable ... Much more practical than the traditional transformers ... And we avoid parasitic sounds ...
