When guitar and bass players hear the name Big Muff, chances are most of them will immediately hear the iconic sound that made this pedal so notorious echoing inside their minds. Today, there is a whole platter of clones available to us in a large variety of different flavours, but fundamentally, they all pay tribute to the classic character of the original Big Muff.
The birth of the Kasleder Yeti on Bass was inspired by the first incarnations of Big Muff pedals, but instead of it being just another clone, there is something more mysterious and sinister hiding under its bonnet, giving it a unique tone and drive texture. Typically, most Muffs are voiced with a very heavy low-end and piercing highs, however, their mid-range is usually very „scooped” and hollow. In order to create a less obtrusive and better balanced sound spectrum, the frequency range of the Yeti Drive has been re-tailored to give a tighter low-end, gentler highs and a slight hump in the mid-range, making the sound extremely controllable and versatile, allowing it to cut through the mix a whole lot better.
If you are a Bass player who likes to use a Big Muff to add some filthy rumble to your tone, then this pedal is for you. An unorthodox, 3 transistor circuit gives a very refreshing twist to the classic Big Muff story. Instead of a high-gain distortion stomp-box, the Yeti on Bass pedal is aimed at re-creating the warm, all-tube sound of the legendary Ampeg bass amplifiers. Regardless of your instrument and amplifier, this pedal can be used very effectively in a large variety of musical styles.
We recommend the Yeti range to guitar and bass players who not only love traditional tones, but are brave enough to experiment with new sound textures as well.
