Heavy Electronics Releases El Oso Distortion Pedal

El Oso blends roaring low-end gain with the dry signal and readily pours out both thump and gain to the input of your amp.

Minneapolis, MN (July 14, 2011) -- The new El Oso from Heavy Electronics blends roaring low-end gain with the dry signal and readily pours out both thump and gain to the input of your amp. With the Mix knob at full mix, there is no hint of the dry signal and at zero mix the output signal is indistinguishable from the true-bypass signal. A JFET input signal buffer guarantees a solid match with the wide variety of impedances found in bass pickups.

Distortion top-end is rolled-off nicely, with plenty of room for a bright maple-board P-bass and enough contouring to do away with any harshness often found in lesser bass distortions. Using the mix and gain knob together the user can create a deep palette of bass distortion tones. High gain and low mix sounds very different than low gain and mix even though dynamically similar. Very simple to use and operate users will "find the tone" within seconds. Perfect for the stage-performing bassist.

Heavy Electronics has already began shipping El Oso to stores for immediate release.

Guitars are the best. We love them. It’s fun to fall in love with a guitar at a store, buy it, and proudly bring it home. But we’ve all been there … where after a month that new guitar is just not playing as good as it was before. As guitar players, we know what feels good and what feels bad when it comes to playability. Maybe you have setup preferences that you like on all your guitars, or maybe you want to experiment with changes to your setup?
