The MBD-2 is the long awaited follow up to our successful MBD-1 MOSFET Bass Distortion. The heart of the MBD-2 is the same bass loving distortion as the original but with a few enhancements customers have begged for (and up until recently we’ve looked down from our high horse and said, “No”).
Those enhancements include: a smaller enclosure (with top-jacks of course!!!), an external boost switch capable of adding 20dB of gain to transport the internal MOSFETs into valhala, silent bypass switching for quiet stages (what are those???), and of course a sexy new look. This compact evolution of the MBD-1 can fit on smaller boards so you no longer have to decide between crushing bass distortion and your Altoids tin.
And as always you’ll…
Never Worry About Your Bass Tone Again!
Gain: Controls the amount of input gain of the distortion channel.
Level: Controls the output level of the distortion channel.
Tone: Tilt-style tone control for the distortion channel centered around 300Hz or 600Hz depending on position of “Shift” control.
Shift: Down position centers the “Tone” control at 300Hz with about a 10dB cut at the center frequency. Up position centers the “Tone” control at 600Hz with about a 6dB cut at the center frequency.
20dB: Adds a 20dB boost on the front end of the distortion channel. Useful for massive gain or boosting weak-willed basses.
Clean: Controls output level of parallel low-passed boost channel.
Depth: Controls the amount of low end injected into the distortion channel. Less depth for a brighter tone and more depth for a thicker tone.
Use only 9VDC 2.1mm center negative (boss-style) power adapters. Isolated pedal specific power supplies are highly recommended. Damnation Audio pedals are designed for maximum headroom and ideal performance with a 9V supply. Going above 9VDC will damage your pedal and void any warranties. Damnation Audio pedals do not accept 9V batteries.
