A friend asked me to build a very grunge looking and sounding bass distortion so here it is..Blender!
Enclosure is from an old mistreated project I did a looong loong time ago. Distortion circuit is based on a highly modified Boss DS-1 with 2-position diode clipping switch. It selects between 2 different types of distortion (open/compressed). Also installed a clean blend since it’s being used primarily with bass guitar. For increased versatility I added a switchable effects loop so you can blend external pedals instead of the internal one if needed.
I’m very happy how it sounds, it’s one of those pedals you don’t want to give away once you try it!
