The Ashdown James LoMenzo HyperDrive Bass Guitar Distortion Pedal operates entirely unlike any other distortion unit currently available.
In the Ashdown James LoMenzo Hyper Drive, a band of frequencies within the midrange of the bass signal is filtered out and the distortion effect is added only to this band. The filtered frequencies can be ‘tuned’ to the precise range that gives the optimum effect.
The degree of distortion available is variable from a subtle break up to huge overdrive, enabling a new range of extreme effects for bass to be created. The distortion effect can then be mixed with the original dry bass signal to maintain a powerful, full-bodied bass tone with distortion overtones.
During more than 30 years experience playing and recording with iconic rock musicians including Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society, David Lee Roth, Ozzy Osbourne, Slash’s Snake Pit, White Lion and now Megadeth, James has been searching for the sound only this pedal can provide.
