What does “distortion effect” mean for bassists?
They naturally have different ideas depending on their play styles and genre. Yet, bass distortion effects pedals, especially overdrive pedals are thought to be an extension of amp simulator/preamp or onboard active preamp.
In order to fulfill the functions of both an amp and a bass, bass overdrive pedals tend to be multifunctional and large size due to an increased number of knobs and terminals.
One Control Hooker's Green Bass Machine embodies everything bassists need in its small body from the bass amp features to tone and deep feelings.
Hooker's Green Bass Machine has a dynamic range as wide as a bass tube amp and picks up all the subtle expressions that bassists create with their fingers. Transitions between clean and distorted sounds are smooth and it creates a gorgeous but stable compression tone like an old transistor amp when you increase the distortion.
You can control your bass in any way you like.
For heavy tracks using a multi-string bass, the Low trim pot on the side does its job. Hooker's Green Bass Machine has enough low-end, but if it’s not enough, try turning the trim pot.
Hooker's Green Bass Machine’s TREBLE knob has limited range to allow subtle adjustment. Many music venues and studios have modern bass amps equipped with powerful EQ and basic bass sound is created using that. What is required for an overdrive pedal is delicate sensory adjustment that is impossible with amp EQ.
Hooker's Green Bass Machine is compact not because it has fewer functions. It is designed to realize the maximum potential to create great sound with minimum body size.
Hooker's Green Bass Machine operates under high voltage when used with up to an 18V adapter. With higher voltage, head room is increased to allow even richer expression while reducing the gain slightly.
