I just recently missed out on a potentially problem solving OD :cry:

Plexi Palace had a short-lived Bass section and I brought up that loss-of-bottom problem (I mean the bass disappearing when using OD, not the "curry before gig" problem). As mentioned only mega-quids Matchbox Dirtbox seemed to do the biz, but another player reckoned on the Budda Phatman so I looked it up.

All seemed good; twin AX7 blah blah blah. The only problem was that he got it on a special for $95 and the best of the net is $230. Dial in the ruinous British import duty and I'm looking at a hefty whack. Besides, if someone else can get a bargain them so am I :P

Hey ho, I'm on FleebUS (rare for me) and one comes up with a BIN of $99, but it's a US only auction. 5am, too tired to swap emails with the seller so I emailed my chum in LA to handle it for me. In the time it took for him to read it and goto Fleeb, someone else had got in there. Rats :evil:

Any other passing bassist with an op on the Budda or other good bass OD? I have to say I find the silicon pedals not so great and I'm not sure about geraniums (won't the scent be a bit overpowering?) but I'll shelve my pro-valve bias if any good suggestions are out there. Wav links even better.
