Excellent bass booster

Patch, 01.05.2018
I had the mole for a while now and I am extremely satisfied with it, the boosted sound is very clean and it gives it a certain punch. Mind you, it is not a 'clean boost' because it enhances the lower frequencies more than the mids and highs. Also be careful, when used in line with a distortion pedal, it seems to filter out some of the distortion.
Overall, the pedal has a very solid build, I would perhaps make the button slightly more sensitive, but that is just a personal preference. Highly recommended, if you need to make your bass heard through the shred and noise of guitar and drums on stage 8-)

It depends on the guitar...

MarcoC, 01.11.2015
As a loop artist I was searching for an effect that let's me play bass lines with my guitar. After trying several octaver pedals I have found my solution with the EHX The Mole. The effect intervenes heavily in the sound, not only boosting the lows. Further it cuts merciless the highs. But that is what I wanted: Because in my loops it is of great importance to differentiate different sounds with just one guitar. Compared to my tested octavers, the bass lines with the Mole are more suited for my dub and trip hop sounds.

But it depends on my guitars: With a more warm sounding humbucker (e.g. Fender Wide Range HH) the sound becomes too muddy quick. A neck humbucker with a higher output drives the Mole quickly in overdrive. Best experiences - and most used - I have with some kind of P-90 style humbuckers...

Overall, I never use the Boost-Pot on the Mole past 12 o'clock as long as I want the tone clean. So, because it has just this Boost-Pot, good experience depends on the instrument specs and settings in front of...

But if that fits - you get a visceral spectacle!
