I have always looked to get a warmer, more open tone from most of my basses, but I never realized how much precise control over the different frequencies can make. I am not into distortion for bass at all, so a few people suggested this unit. I am so glad I bought it! It enables you to custom tailor the sound of your bass more than you could imagine. One of my basses is an Epiphone Jack Casady, which is a warm, woody-sounding bass to begin with, but run through the Boss GEB-7, you can make it sound even warmer and open. I have found that boosting the lowest slider control just a little, and then boosting the mids to taste gives me the sound I like. I also use it with a custom Jazz bass and an Ibanez BTB. You have to experiment with the unit, because it responds a little differently to different pickups and between passive and active instruments, but it always helps. I use it to get a warmer sound, but it will also give you a harder, in-your-face metal tone. You just have to experiment with it a little. I never realized such a simple, inexpensive unit would due so much to change a bass' tone. It can also boost your signal, so it's the first step towards distortion if you want that. This is a great unit! Buy one! Thank you, Boss, and thank you, Raymond in the Manhattan store for recommending this.
