A clean boost that aims to provide up to 27dB of gain.

Pittsburgh, PA (November 29, 2018) -- The Vitamin C is a clean volume boost, providing up to 27dB of pure, juicy gain, all in a compact 3.5” x 1.5” package.

The boost circuit was designed to minimize sonic coloration, with a flat frequency response at all gain settings, stretching from the deepest basses to the highest trebles.

With a high input impedance and low output impedance, the pedal can also be used at its lowest gain setting as a simple buffer, avoiding the dreaded 'tone suck' that can arise from long signal chains (too many true-bypass pedals or long cables).

Whether using it as a buffer, a simple volume boost for solos or more intense passages, or to overdrive a tube amp or another pedal, this little juicebox is a useful supplement for any pedalboard.

Features:

  • Die-cast aluminum case
  • True bypass on/off switch
  • 9-volt operation and standard DC input

The Vitamin C pedal carries a street price of $60. They’re available directly from the RPS Effects online store at www.rpseffects.com.

Flexible filtering options and a vicious fuzz distinguish the Tool bass master’s signature fuzz-wah.

Great quality filters that sound good independently or combined. Retains low end through the filter spectrum. Ability to control wah and switch on fuzz simultaneously. Very solid construction.

Fairly heavy. A bit expensive.

Options for self-expression through pedals are almost endless these days. It’s almost hard to imagine a sonic void that can’t be filled by a single pedal or some combination of them. But when I told bass-playing colleagues about the new Dunlop Justin Chancellor Cry Baby—which combines wah and fuzz tuned specifically for bass—the reaction was universal curiosity and marvel. It seems Dunlop is scratching an itch bass players have been feeling for quite some time.

Playing in the pocket is the most important thing in music. Just think about how we talk about great music: It's "grooving" or "swinging" or "rocking." Nobody ever says, "I really enjoyed their use of inverted suspended triads," or "their application of large-interval pentatonic sequences was fascinating." So, whether you're playing live or recording, time is everyone's responsibility, and you must develop your ability to play in the pocket.
