Source Audio Bass OFD

sifi2112, 12.07.2015
Really impressed with this bass pedal. It covers a wide range of dirt / overdrive / fuzz & distortion sounds & having the ability to add the clean bass signal is such a good feature. The noise gate is also another bonus esp with high gain ... The ability to save two presets effectively means you get to pedals in one or you can programme both presets with the same sound but use one as a volume pedal in conjunction with their expression pedal or morph one sound into another like low gain in octave fuzz :) just highly versatile & great sounding !

Best of all Thomann sell it cheaper than anywhere I can find & you get the great 3 year warranty (which they gave honoured before at no charge) ...

You gotta love Thomann :)

"Does the job" is an understatement

HugoJ, 16.02.2016
Over the years I've got the chance to try the actual stompboxes that the Soundblox 2 OFD Bass MicroMod is supposed to emulate. In case you were not fully aware, this tiny little fantastic device emulates Marshall Amplifiers, Mesa Boogie Amplifiers and pedals such as Tone Bender, Fuzz Face, Octavia and even the Woolly Mammoth. As if that was not good enough, the engineers at Source Audio had 2 or 3 sounds of their own, namely a "Metal" inspired one, and a very warm and fat Crunch Tube distortion.

Musicians we tend to love the hardware, having the vintage pedals, with all their knobs and quirks, but the truth is: technology is able to deliver the tonal characteristics of the old-full analog circuitry in a more compact and reliable setup. I guess what I'm trying to say is: the emulation of the SA Soundblox 2 OFD delivers the performance you would expect/need. It has a build-in Noise Gate, as well as the ability to emphasize and target specific frequencies, should you need to boost any of them. I ended up removing my stand-alone noise gate from my pedalboard, for it felt redundant at this point.

The Soundblox 2 is very easy to use and to program. I just wish I could store more "presets" since the sounds you get from this device are varied and usable, but already at this price it feels like an absolute bargain.

Improvements? Well, I'd love to have an Additional Dry-ONLY signal output, but again, at this price I feel I have already been given so much.
