Genzler's Crash Box 4 is an all-analog bass distortion pedal that emulates four distinct distortion types found in popular tube and solid-state amps, giving it tons of sonic versatility.
The Crash Box 4 has four "gears" that provide its signature sound. In 1st gear, it delivers a smooth overdrive/distortion reminiscent of a moderately driven tube amp, rich with natural harmonics and slight compression. 2nd gear emulates a tube amp's heavily overdriven tone, with more harmonics, compression, and top-end. 3rd gear is an aggressive shift from 2nd gear, churning out a heavier, edgier distortion with plenty of odd-order harmonics and a tight, compressed sound. High-gain players will love the final 4th gear mode, which has a crushing sound with tons of harmonics, compression, and sustain. Once you've selected your favorite channel, you can fine-tune your sound with the onboard filters, drive controls, and clean/dry volumes to find the gritty tone of your dreams.
If you've been in the market for a bass distortion pedal with an extensive sonic palette, the Genzler Crash Box 4 is an excellent contender.
