Crazy Tube Circuits announces its newest creation – Planet B, a bass overdrive pedal.

The pedal is voiced after a ‘70s high wattage guitar tube amp that was also used for bass guitar in rock, doom, sludge and stoner bands.

The Planet B’s gain control provides a wide range of sounds, from big bold clean to heavy overdrive that retains clarity even at maximum settings. Players can use the blend control to mix the clean signal and preserve all of the precious low frequencies. The tone control only affects the overdrive signal and the volume control sets the master volume of the pedal (post blend).

A voicing toggle switch boosts mid frequencies (in supersonic mode) to make sure players will be heard light years away.

Planet B ships at the end of December 2016. Direct price: €189
