Sounds Great Music presents the Amptweaker Bass TightDrive, a great pedal to tighten up your bass lines or to get a great sounding distortion. The idea for the Bass TightDrive was conceived after Greg Weeks, the bass player from The Red Chord plugged into the guitar version and loved it. After the pedal was tweaked, the bass version was ready. The innovative Tight control allows the player to adjust the attack, leading to anything from smooth to aggresive.

When this control is combined with the other settings a huge range of tones can be created. Fat blues, crunchy bass and all out heavy bass. As with all Amptweaker pedals, the Bass TightDrive includes an effects loop with pre or post setting, so you can add other effects to the core tone. These effects are then bypassed when the TightDrive is turned off.

"The TightDrive Bass distortion pedal is a well rounded low end beast. While most bass overdrive pedals actually suck out the low end the TightDrive holds onto it and can release a warm round tone, a saturated "coming off its hinges" tone and everything in between. It is the perfect pedal for all players wanting to experiment with a thicker, fuller tone." – Greg Weeks, bassist with The Red Chord
