This morning I’m in a music haze. Spent all weekend recording 3 songs for an upcoming 7″ vinyl. It’s always been a dream of mine to have something on vinyl, and my head is still in the clouds thinking about it. The weekend’s tracking is what I like as well – live style. The whole band in the same room (amps faced away and everything close mic’d). Amps facing away. No scratch tracks and vocals were the only thing record after the fact. Stuff sounded real – mistakes, bleed, tempo changes. Love it. When I listen to it, I feel like it’s alive and not sterile. Granted, having a kick-ass studio recording as perfect as one can get is important as well, but capturing like has it’s charm as well!
Anyway, this morning I was searching about things to talk about. Of course there is epic NAMM discussions, but for whatever reason, this video caught my attention. I’ll talk about NAMM stuff when I’m little more focused. So, I wanted to talk about Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Bass Big Muff Pi. I’ve had several discussions with bass players recently about dirt on their bass tone. I’m a huge fan of the Russian Big Muff Pi on bass. I’ve also very interested in the ZVex Basstortion as well, but this guy seems like a strong contender.
Here is the video by EHX:
Here is the official description on the Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Bass Big Muff Pi:
The new Deluxe Bass Big Muff is the latest in the line of EHX bass specific effects. It delivers enhancements to the classic Bass Big Muff Pi that are specifically tailored to the needs of the modern bass player and gives you more tone shaping options than ever before.
