Hammer-Effekt mit kleinen Schwächen

24.03.2016
Was die Soundeffekte und die möglichen Variationen betrifft, hält das Bass-Effektgerät Redwitch Factotum in jedem Fall, was die Testberichte (u.a. Gitarre & Bass - Böse Hexe) versprechen.

Die Einsatzmöglichkeiten des Redwitch Factotum stelle ich hier einfach mal aus meiner Erfahrung als Bassist in einer Rock-Coverband vor.
Hier muss dazu erwähnt werden, dass es in der Band weder eine 2. Gitarre noch ein Keyboard gibt, so dass der Bass hier häufig etwas mehr Fülle liefern muss.

a) Der Suboctaver eignet sich am besten, um bei überwiegend auf den beiden hohen Saiten (D + G) gespielten Basslinien zusätzliches Fundament beizumischen.
b) Die Overdrive-Sektion liefert fast unendlich viele Varianten von leichtem Crunch bis dreckiger Zerre. Wird in meinem Fall oft dafür eingesetzt, um während eines Gitarrensolos die Basslinie mit mehr Boost zu spielen, wobei der Zerranteil dann im Grunde einen Teil der 2. Gitarre mit übernimmt.
c) Beide Effekte zusammen geht mit diesem Gerät auch, allerdings braucht es dafür eine sorgfältig vorgenommene Einstellung, sonst wird das Ganze zu überladen.

Absolut störend ist aber ein unüberhörbarer Schaltknacks beim Einschalten von einem der beiden Taster für Suboctaver bzw. Overdrive. Das nervt schon im Proberaum, aber unter Live-Bedingungen schlägt der Schaltknacks entsprechend über die PA durch. Bei einem Effektgerät dieser Preisklasse eigentlich nicht wirklich akzeptabel.
Als Abhilfe gegen den Schaltknacks kenn folgendes empfohlen werden: Da die Effektregler auf Stellung 0 lt. Herstellerbeschreibung einem True Bypass entsprechen, kann man sich behelfen indem man beide Effekte eingeschaltet lässt und bei Bedarf von Hand dazuregelt (dazu am besten das Gerät in erreichbarer Höhe platzieren). Das setzt allerdings voraus, dass man gerade eine Hand frei hat, wenn man den jeweiligen Effekt braucht, was in der Spielpraxis aber kaum immer passen dürfte.
Gut gemeint sind vom Hersteller auch die recht dicken Gummifüße, allerdings wird das Gerät dadurch bei Gebrauch als Bodentreter etwas kippelig.

Etwas nachteilig ist auch der hohe Stromverbrauch bei Batteriebetrieb - was man recht schnell daran merkt, wenn beim Einschalten des Effekts die Lautstärke stark abnimmt. Unbedingt zu empfehlen ist daher der Betrieb mit einem handelsüblichen 9V-Netzteil (gibt's ja auch bei Thomann ;-))

Fazit: Redwitch Factotum ist eine hervorragende Bereicherung für das Bass-Soundspektrum für viele Stilrichtungen, so sind z.B. mit Suboctaver + Overdrive auch richtig spacige Sounds möglich. Auch sehr gut einsetzbar wenn man für bestimmte Passagen etwas mehr Lautstärke braucht. Einen dicken Minuspunkt gibt es aber von meiner Seite für den Schaltknacks beim Einschalten eines Tasters.

Mehr geht nicht...na ja vielleicht schon, aber das Gerät befindet sich schon in der Oberklasse. Das lästige Vokabelaneinandergereihe spare ich mir. Dafür gibts genug Rezensionen im Netz. Einfach mal bestellen, testen, behalten oder wieder zurück.
Ich für meine Teile behalte es.
