If you are dreaming of slow doomy powerchord passages or thunderous bass lines or synth-filter-wah-lazers, Bear in blue is the answer. With the bass retaining clipping characteristic and a sculpting multi mode filter, it makes even the most esoteric indie pawnshop guitar roar!

 

 

The gain structure draws inspiration from legendary op-amp fuzzes like Maestro MFZ-1 and IC Big Muff where a cleanish gainstage is slammed to a soft clipped one. Perfect for slow fuzz action where the texture of a sound is as important as the size of it. And it’s tailored to maintain bass frequencies so the bass and synth players can get their piece of action.

 

Invigorate your performance with a external control to shake things up. Bear in blues filter cutoff frequency is controllable with an experssion pedal and/or control voltages up to 5 volts. Ride those squelchy filter oscillations in pursuit of the arcane knowledge of subtractive synthesis!

 

The filter design is an adaptation of a Steiner-Parker filter known for it’s guttural charcteristics and hardly ever seen in a pedal form. The mode switch changes between three different filter types giving you the ultimate tool to craft your sound. Or destroy it beautifully.

 

And it doesn’t end there. The dry mixing stage enables you to blend in the input signal. Feed your favorite overdrive for stacked gain madness. Use it to fade in the effect with your sampler. Or layer the dirt behind your clean bass sound.

 

 

Bear in blue can be used with most electric instruments. And at studio situations a new horizons can be found using it at effect inserts or re-amp situations. A handy tool to have in sound design!
