A friend of mine recomended me the Blowtorch just to try. I was never a fan of using a distortion effect with bass. My exeperince with the effect on a bass was always bad. Of the sound became fuzzy or unrealistic or the sound lost the clearity,....But, when I tried my friends Blowtorch, I was instantly on Thomann buying it for myself.

The effect offers you diffrent kinds of tone managment. You can use it for diffrent styles of music, from Rock to Metal or you can use it just as a EQ for diffrent types of the song. I use it as distortion on a bass for several songs and I use it as boost/EQ in chorus.

The sound is great. It offers a wide option of sound managment and it is a must buy.

Die BlowTorch ist echt der Hammer wenn man Zerr-Sounds für seinen Bass sucht.

Die Verarbeitung der BlowTorch ist wie bei allen MXR Effektgeräten ohne Tadel. Ein Gehäuse aus gebürstetem Metall, dessen "Trittfläche" durch eine gelb-orangene Warnzeichnung hervorgehoben wird. Eine blaue LED zeigt den Betriebsstatus. Ein leicht versenkter Schieber, der eine Mittenanhebung auf drei verschiedenen Frequenzen erlaubt. Im Halbkreis angebracht finden wir insgesamt sechs Potis, auf deren Achsen altbewährte und gut griffige Knöpfe stecken.

Neben Gain (Zerrgrad) und Volumen (Lautstärke Output) gibt es einen 3-Band-EQ (Bass, Midrange, Treble). Für Midrange findet sich ein zusätzlicher Schieber, an dem man aus drei Frequenzen die zu Beeinflussende wählen kann. Der sechste Reger ist der Blend-Regler, an dem stufenlos eingestellt werden kann, wie viel Effekt-Anteil bzw. wie viel Original-Signal im Sound gewünscht wird. Zu guter Letzt gibt es noch einen Schalter an der Gehäuseseite, der eine stärkere Intensität der Zerre liefert.

Dank der gut durchdachten Anordnung dieses Schalters kann man sogar während der Benutzung der BlowTorch mit einem leichten Druck der Schuhseite seinen Sound boosten. Durch die zwei Ausgänge (Thru, Ouput) hat man die Möglichkeit seinen unveränderten Originalsound auf einen anderen Kanal zu legen (oder auch an einen anderen Amp...) als den Effektsound, was sich nicht nur im Studio anbietet.

Und zum Sound: Man erntet stets einen guten Sound, auch bei extremen EQ-Einstellungen. Dieses Pedal dickt schön an. Die BlowTorch passt dank der weit gefächerten Zerrmöglichkeiten (...ohne Pröbleme von schön warm über leicht angezerrt bis hin zum brachialen Metalhammer...) zu nahezu jeder Musikstilistik.

Unbedingt antesten!
