So yesterday, I talked about the EHX Screaming Bird Treble Booster at Amazon, I thought it would only be appropriate to talk about the EHX’s The Mole, which is a bass boost pedal in the nano chassis. Again, this pedal is not really available on Musician’s Friend, not sure if they’re just out of stock or what, but is available on Amazon. It normally lists for $52.00, but is on sale for $39.00 which includes FREE super saver shipping.
Here is the official product description:
The Mole is a bass booster that helps bassists and guitarists unearth a sound that is positively subterranean. Based on the classic design, this updated pedal adds the same rich, low-end bottom while adding a 20dB boost to your signal. Whether you step on the Mole to get deep, ground-shaking drive or dial back the knob to add some texture to your existing tone, the Mole will dig wherever you tell it to.
I’m unable to find any video demos or reviews on either of these pedals. Let me know if you stumble across one!

If I only had time… my usual excuse for such a review. I bought one used from a guy for $31 shipped. It isn’t a bad pedal, but don’t expect it to wow you. It does what it says it does – it gives you that low end boost. Don’t associate boost like a soloing guitar pedal, with ‘ahhhs’, this is all about the low end ‘booooms’. When in use, it will not be an on-off thing mid-song, but will primarily be used for those songs where lots of low end will be needed, even on a passive P-bass.
Perhaps I could plug it up and do an iPhone video demo soon.Reply

I got one of this pedals, and is a friend when you need to change very quick your sound between a “funky brilliant bass” to “Reggae bass”. In some part or our songs i need to do that, and i haven`t to get another Bass eq pedal just using the Mole instead.Reply
You have to be very carefull if you put the mole after a phaser, wah pedals or envelope followers, cause in the low end you can damage you cabinet (increased too much).
For me, The mole is Motown sound in one click!
