Crossover Distortion works great on bass guitar! (demo vid)

Hey folks, just wanted to let everyone know that our Crossover Distortion works just dandy for electric bass, as well as guitar. If you haven't heard of it yet, it's an analog multiband distortion, which has a variable crossover to split the low and high frequencies and send them each to their own mosfet distortion circuit. Bi-amping in a box, essentially. You can preserve the punch and clairty of your low end, and match it with an overdriven midrange and treble on the top end. It's a no-brainer for bass players who want to play with distortion.. Here's the demo video I shot with my '75 reis Fender Jazz:

Thanks for checking it out everyone!

Sounds cool, it's good to get see some distortions and fuzzes coming out that are well suited to bass. I think this is one area bassists get neglected, so top marks there :)

Thanks for the kind words! Of course, we designed this pedal mainly for guitar. We were thinking to do a bass version, that we would have to change a few things to optimize it for bass. But once I got into it, it seemed like it was doing just fine for bass guitar! We'll see what the future holds, but for now it's doing the job, as the bass players who I have showed it to seem to be digging it. :) We will see if the multi-band thing continues to grow in popularity as more people hear what you can do with it.

That Crossover has to be one of the best looking pedals in the realm. Trying to pay off some stuff to build my card back up.
Love the idea of splitting off the freq and the gain level, still not sure how all the controls work and interact. Cool innovative idea.
