SDOTD, for those of you not familiar with this acronym is Stupid Deal of the Day. This is the great promotion that Musician’s Friend runs on a daily basis, where they slash prices big time on certain items in their store. Obviously, when it’s pedal related, I take notice. Some times there pedals that no one cares about while other times, they’re something worth paying attention to. This is one of those times.
Today’s Stupid Deal of the Day is the Pigtronix Bass Fat Drive!
Here is some info on the Pigtronix Bass Fat Drive:
Building on the breakout success of the Pigtronix FAT Drive, we are proud to introduce the Bass FAT Drive. Fine-tuned for low end muscle and grind, the Bass FAT Drive slams your amp with all analog, tube emulated overdrive that ranges from soft and warm to ripping high gain apocalyptic thunder. Used in front of a DI or solid state amp, the Bass FAT Drive adds a round, organic depth to your bass tone.
The Bass Fat Drive leverages Pigtronix CMOS clipping concept to sculpt a larger than life sound that breaks up based on how hard you hit the strings. Turning the tone control all the way clockwise takes our bass specific low pass filter completely out of the circuit for total transparency and robust low end. Rolling the tone control back attenuates only the top end, leaving midrange and bottom end punch intact.
A Hi / Lo toggle switch brings additional versatility to the Bass FAT Drive’s wide-ranging palette of overdrive tones, altering the gain structure for deep saturation. The Bass FAT Drive features true bypass switching and runs fine on standard 9-volt power but ships with an 18-volt adapter for superior headroom, clarity and overall output.

Okay, let’s talk about the deal! Typically the Pigtronix Bass Fat Drive sells for $149, but is currently on sale for a crazy low price of $69! With Stupid Deals of the Day, these deals only last for 24 hours OR until the unit counts gets low. As with all Stupid Deals, if you want this pedal, you need to jump on it. I’ve personally missed opportunities by being slow.
