Electro Harmonix XO Bass Blogger Distortion Pedal - Product Review

Guitars OnlineI am a huge proponent of gain heavy bass sounds. Having just tried the Big Muff for bass guitar, I had good feelings about what the Bass Blogger was going to provide. I ran this pedal through an Ampeg 8x10 which was paired with an Ampeg SVT 3 Pro head. I played a Fender American Jazz bass with nothing in between the amp and myself except the Electro Harmonix XO Bass Blogger Distortion pedal. Yet another little unit with a massive kick. The over drive sound here is reminiscent of much more a classic rock kind of feel, but the possibilities really do range. This box houses the ability to bring out some Boston-esque funky keyboard and bass vibes.

The pedal is irresistibly basic and undeniably easy to navigate. With just three turn knobs on it's face and a switch to choose between Fuzz and Drive, you will be able to dial in the sweetness in just a few seconds. Once again, I am amazed at how quickly Electro Harmonix's pedals changed my sound for the better. Even with polar opposite settings on the Tone knob, I thought the effect sounded premium always. With the Tone notched all the way at 0, you will have a really mud thick crunch that is great for funk bass grooves. You can definitely come up with some of those unforgettable hip hop bass rhythms and feel legit with this setting. If you dial forward, you will open up the tone and create more of a contemporary vibe. Imagine the tone of bands like Wolfmother.

This is another impressive shot from Electro Harmonix. I have been able to test a good number of their products and have yet to really criticize much. This pedal is just $75 and is great for bassists looking to gain a little bit of that classic over drive punch. So far, it seems that the companies affordable price range, effect quality, and durable construction are the standard for all their devices. I am very pleased to continue on my quest and see everything that they have to offer!

Pick up this unique pedal and greatly enhance your sound for a minimal price!
