  • Digitech XBW Bass Synth Wah

    What is it? Digitech XBW Bass Synth Wah, Bass envelope filter from X-series. Made in china around mid-00’s. Ok. I’ve had some of the X-series boxes lying around for quite some time. Just didn’t find it in me to open them up until now. All them sounded and felt reasonable good on initial tests, so […]

  • Ibanez BP5 Bass Compressor

    What is it? Ibanez BP5 Bass Comp compressor from the Soundtank series. Made in taiwan around mid 90’s. Who would have thought that BP5 was the hardest unit to find in all the plastic Soundtanks? Well it was. The complete series did come by more easily than i expected, but there were still a couple […]

  • DOD FX91 Bass Overdrive

    What is it? DOD FX91 Bass Overdrive from DOD FX-series. Made in US around year 2000. No serial or battery door in tact, even though this late enclosure version has the door attached with a rod. Bass overdrives are a fun genre. I’ve seen a few and nearly all of them are pretty standard overdrive […]

Got it somewhere around 2002 and i’ve used it mostly with a guitar with occasional bass hook when recording. Due to its very complex digital design, i won’t […]

  • Ibanez BC10 Stereo Bass Chorus

    What is it? Ibanez BC10 Stereo Bass Chorus from 10/Power series. Made in japan around late 80’s. As with CS5/BC5 covered earlier, the circuit is more or less verbatim with CS10. Funny. Four pedals equal one design, or the other way around. And the colour is… Slightly darker-or-more-violet-than-SC10-blue. As with its guitary brother, SC10, the […]

  • Ibanez BC5 Bass Chorus

    What is it? Ibanez BC5 Bass Chorus from Soundtank series, made in japan in mid-to-late nineties. Serial number is in millions, so it’s safe to assume this is late 90’s unit. To me it seems like the bass effects are mainly distortions, autowahs and lots of choruses. Bassists are left out on many things as […]
