Why is it that electric guitarists have all the fun when it comes to pedals? We see thousands of pedals in the market that are designed for them, with bassists and acoustic guitarists left scratching their head wondering why they are left in the dark. Well we have been digging to find pedals that are designed specifically for the bass or acoustic guitarists! Here are our top picks.
ZVEX Woolly Mammoth Fuzz
Coming from the mad tone scientists down at ZVEX Effects, the Woolly Mammoth has become a go-to effect for bass players searching for a harmonically rich and touch-sensitive fuzz pedal that can handle sub frequencies like no other. Don’t be fooled by its pedalboard friendly size however, because this pedal packs some serious punch. If you’re prone to leaving a beer on top of your amp mid set, the thunderous Wooly Mammoth will rumble it right off. Seriously, you’ve been warned.
RADIAL TONEBONE BASSBONE V2
The original Tonebone Bassbone by Radial was used by players like Marcus Miller, John Patitucci, Rhonda Smith and Victor Wooten - in other words, some of the world’s greatest bass virtuosos, and in particular players who demand unparalleled clarity. The V2 version takes this same audio circuit but packs in a bunch of new features and flexibility.
