    Not here to say what's better or best. I don't ****************ing know.But I do know this, Jeff from High On Fire uses a Pharaoh, and used it to record the new record. Jonathan from Torche uses one too, also on the new record. Scott from Weezer is using a Pharaoh, and a whole slew of other guys...Including myself.


    Mentioning it's on the High on Fire record was more than enough cred in my book. Haha. Pharaoh rules. I used it on my bands demo and on a single we just recorded. I use a dual amp rig, but the Pharaoh is a huge staple to my tone. I have used it with a bass through my Bassman and it was ****************ing rad.

          I'd go with a Pharaoh, it doesn't make your low end disappear like a Muff does.

            RIght on, all lowend is intact, and fuzzed, depending where you set the knobbie thingeees. No need for a clean blend here...

              I use a Bass Blogger. You can switch it to fuzz or OD, so it is really flexible.

                I'd definitely say make sure you get a clean blend with whatever you're using. Makes your tone sound infinitely better, IMO, since you don't lose all your low end. It's your tone, just dirtier and sexier. Haha

                    totally agree.
                    I would start by buying a Boss ODB-3, just because it has built in clean blend, between that and the eq it can be dialed in quite nicely. the topper is that it's cheap, sounds huge and can cut through a mix.

                      Swollen Pickle handles bass great on the cheap side. To my ears tho you can't beat the Megalith although it's a lot more expensive but it's the heaviest and most bass heavy fuzz I've ever heard.

                        Bass Big Muff. Keep some cleans in their for tightness, also on your amp try to dial away all sub-bass, the kick drum is already covering that spectrum. The best is to try to fill out the lower mid frequencies that the drums and guitars don't cover.

                          I used a musket fuzz with my jazz bass for heavy stuff and its pretty much one of the most awesome sounds things i've ever heard. Plus you could really tighten up the sound with the focus knob.

                              I can attest to the quality of Jeff's tone. I've never tried my Pharaoh on my bass, to be honest.
