Hi, sorry to be a bother, adore your blog. I have a question. So my rig right now consist of a Little Mark III ran through a ported cab with an eminence delta & a 90's reissue Ampeg Jet tube amp with trem/verb going through EH Switchblade +> Rocktron Short timer> Danelectro Cool Cat> Big Muff PI> Devi Ever The legend of Fuzz> Bass. Right now I'm at the point where I want a more distinct/clear sound with my high gain, I was wondering if I should get an OD? I play in a drum'n'bass band. TY IAN

Never a bother. If I didn’t want to help I would stop running this blog. haha. 
Thanks for enjoying though. 
As for a high gain sound that’s more distinct and clear, that’s tough to consider with that setup. It’s definitely interesting. Something with a tighter gain will help though both of your fuzzes are pretty gnarly. I love the OCD on bass, but you should try one out before you buy. People like bass drivers and stuff. I think if I were to need something I’d find a buddy to build me something gnarly with a clean blend. Bass is always tricky and it will also come down to picking and the style you are playing. 

It’s always difficult getting good distortion sounds for me. 
That said, check out the band deathdealer and I’m pretty sure Dave was using a Metal Muff for a long ass time and it sounded amazing on bass. haha

Här står jag med min älskade gamla rigg för sista gången. Så jäkla många glada spelminnen den har givit mig på gig, rep och inspelningar. Har stundtals blivit hånad för utseendet och storleken(en del har valt att benämna den rymdskeppet) men den har fan levererat i vått och torrt. Nu är 25 års njutning över och den har fått ett nytt hem i Kristianstad. Givetvis skiljs vi åt över ett legendariskt pris, 6666 kr!
